'Better Call Saul' season 3 news and updates: Co-creator Peter Gould may hit 'Game of Thrones'
"Better Call Saul" has seen a handful of "Breaking Bad" cameos and creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are promising more as the season 2 of the award-winning series has come to a close. And now, it looks like the two producers are cooking up some arrangements involving some of the cast from HBO's hit fantasy series, "Game of Thrones" too.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly earlier this April, Gould, co-creator of "Better Call Saul," revealed which universe he would love to meld with the series next. Considering that the drama is a prequel spin-off of their original meth-making drama series, "Breaking Bad," Gould and Gilligan found it immensely fun and entertaining to have some "Breaking Bad" characters make a few stints in the "Better Call Saul" universe.
It looks like for Gould, the crafty and sly lawyer Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and the capable hit-man Mike (Jonathan Banks) would actually do well.
"I would love to see what Jimmy McGill would do in one of the trials on 'Game of Thrones,'" he said. "Might be kind of scary, actually. I think Mike would do very, very well on 'Game of Thrones.'"
The producer could also envision a "Better Call Saul" universe with a sly and cunning Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) in it.
"Peter Dinklage's character would be a very natural addition to 'Better Call Saul,'" he said. "I could see Tyrion being some kind of crime lord. I think he'd be one of the best crime lords in Albuquerque history. He'd give Gus a run for his money."
"Better Call Saul" is scheduled to release its third season sometime around early 2017.
