On today’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan visits the cat ranch and proves that, despite helming one of the darkest TV dramas in recent memory, he’s actually one of the nicest guys in the business — he was even nice enough to guest star on an episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! and eat a hot dog.
Breaking Bad won four of the six Primetime Emmy Awards it was nominated for in 2014, and Better Call Saul will return to AMC for its second season in 2016 and was just nominated for four Emmys of its own, so Gilligan is more than worthy of a seat in the garage. Marc and Vince’s wide-ranging conversation touches on Albuquerque, the South, second-hand books, debating film vs. video, George Lucas, Gilligan’s time writing for The X-Files, meeting Bryan Cranston and giving the Saul Goodman character his own show which, again, is returning to AMC in 2016. Sorry, we’re just excited: it’s an excellent program.
