“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston plans to direct an episode of the show’s upcoming spin-off series “Better Call Saul.”

The spin-off prequel is based on the dodgy dealings of lawyer Saul Goodman and has been created by Vince Gilligan, the writer and producer behind “Breaking Bad.”

Aaron Paul revealed in March that he would reprise his role of troubled student Jesse Pinkman for occasional episodes but his co-star Cranston is not satisfied with simply playing his character Walter White once more – he wants to work on the show behind the scenes too.

He says, “If Vince calls me, I will do anything he wants. I hope to go back and direct an episode as well.”

“Better Call Saul” is due to air in November.
