How did Vince explain the character of Uncle Jack to you? Jesse Plemons told us that he and Vince talked about Todd as being a bit militant. How did you guys talk about Jack?
If I remember correctly, he told me he’s just a vile human being but you want to be next to him. That rang a bell. Then he said, in his inimitable way, that Jack is just [in Vince Gilligan’s voice] badass. And then I remember he said something about Sergio Leone. Then I got it. I love the old spaghetti Westerns — I love the almost-cartoonish drama. At the end of the day, it’s a style, and I think Vince conveyed that to me. So those are the two key words I remember: badass and Sergio Leone.
I think that Vince was so detail oriented that we all got trained to be very concerned about issues of continuity. That went through the entire crew. Everyone was always being as detail oriented as they possibly could be which sometimes lead to amazing creative ideas and creative breakthroughs. One idea that I thought was incredible and I haven’t heard anybody mention is that Jennifer Bryant, our costume designer, had the idea that in my episode Granite State that when we see Jesse he’s been imprisoned by Todd and the gang for so very long that he’s had to have a change of clothes. What he is wearing is actually the outfit that Todd wore when he shot Drew Sharpe earlier in Season 5. That was an incredible sort of Easter egg that Jennifer came up with and I think that’s the product of the fact that everyone was thinking so deeply about what we had done and trying to be so detail oriented.

"I can grow your business exponentially."
What’s the oldest person who’s asked you to do that (call people bitch)?
She was probably pushing a good 90, 95. I’m not even kidding! This woman comes up to me, and she’s like “Oh my god, I love you so much!”. And she’s very old, very frail. Very frail.
