Bryan Cranston Resurrects Walter White at Electric Daisy Carnival

‘Breaking Bad’ actor demands Las Vegas crowd to “Say my name” while onstage with Above & Beyond

Bryan Cranston made a surprise appearance during Above & Beyond’s Electric Daisy Carnival performance Saturday to briefly revive his Walter White persona from Breaking Bad. The British trance crew previously recorded a track titled “Walter White” in 2013, and as Above & Beyond were about to drop that song on the Las Vegas crowd, Cranston appeared onstage demanding that festivalgoers “Say my name,” a nod to White’s alias Heisenberg and his terrifying catchphrase.

Cranston then pushed the button that kickstarted “Walter White” over the festival’s soundsystem. “Leaving EDC – Vegas right now. Pulled an all nighter. Old, my ass… Old, my head. Old, my feet… Happy Fathers Day,” Cranston tweeted after his surprise appearance at Electric Daisy. After leaving Above & Beyond’s booth, Cranston shot some video of his view above the dancing masses.

While Breaking Bad ended on a deadly note for Cranston’s character, the actor continues to tease fans that Walter White might be resurrected in some capacity in the future. After noting that White’s eyes never close in the series finale, Cranston quipped to CNN that viewers “never saw a [body] bag zip up or anything.” When asked if fans will ever see Walter White in action again, Cranston teased, “Never say never.”

There were rumors that both Cranston and Aaron Paul (who played Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad) were interested in reprising their roles for the prequel series Better Call Saul, although that show’s creators later swore to fans that neither Jesse or Walt would appear in Season One, a promise that turned out to be true. However, “the sky is the limit and any of these characters could conceivably show up in future seasons,” Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said.
