Jesse, Hank on Odenkirk's wishlist for 'Better Call Saul'

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Actor Bob Odenkirk, the only star from "Breaking Bad" to get a spin-off in "Better Call Saul" wants Jesse Pinkman and Hank Schrader from the cult drug drama to make an appearance on the new show.

In the original story, Odenkirk played a shady lawyer. Pinkman (Aaron Paul) was the one who advised Walter White (Bryan Cranston) to hire Goodman.

"Better Call Saul", currently in its third season, has already seen fan favourite characters Gus Fring, a dangerous drug kingpin, and Mike, his right hand man, return to the show that is set before "Breaking Bad".

"I would like to see Jesse come back into our show from 'Breaking Bad'. I would love to see Hank (Schrader, Walter White's DEA agent brother-in-law) come back, because Hank knew Saul when they met in the hallway.

"They had some run-ins before so I would love to see those two characters in some capacity come back. I hope that happens," Odenkirk told PTI in an interview over telephone from New York.

Not much was known about the character's personal life on "Breaking Bad", which gave the writers enough room to trace his evolution from Jimmy McGrill to Goodman.

"Better Call Saul" airs in India on Colors Infinity.
