Samuel L. Jackson Wanted Nick Fury to Appear in Breaking Bad

During filming on Marvel's The Avengers, apparently actor Samuel L. Jackson had a secret desire for Nick Fury, his character from the Marvel Universe films, to guest star on the hit AMC drama Breaking Bad.

"They shot in the studio right across from us in Albuquerque," Jackson told The Playlist of Breaking Bad.

The actor said he had hoped to have an in-costume walk-on role in Breaking Bad, but that said none of the producers would allow him (it's unclear whether he's talking about producers on The Avengers or Breaking Bad). "I just wanted to order a three piece and really freak people out," he joked of the fried chicken restaurant on Breaking Bad. "Then people would be going, 'Wow, was that him?'"

The star also repeated his now-familiar refrain about the Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series: "I don't know. They haven't talked to me about it," he said, "But when I think about the TV show I think Nick Fury should at least be like Charlie in 'Charlie's Angels.' You should hear his voice, they should talk to him."
