Is Chuck McGill, brother of Jimmy McGill (aka Saul Goodman), mentioned at all in Breaking Bad?

Chuck is an important figure in the life of Jimmy McGill in the first season of Better Call Saul, but I don't remember him being mentioned in Breaking Bad.

    The powerful law firm of HHM is also not mentioned in Breaking Bad, so I think we have to wait and see what happens to Hamlin, Kim and Chuck... It's still early in the series!

Apart from Saul's real name, that he reveals to Walt in his very first episode of Breaking Bad we know literally nothing about his past, so it's quite obvious that Chuck isn't mentioned. There is also no Breaking Bad episode reference in the Chuck's page on Breaking Bad Wiki.

    I wonder if there are cases where Chuck isn't mentioned by name, but Saul references something vague (that we can infer he has experience with) that we can now connect to Chuck.

I think he actually shows up for one second. I'm rewatching Breaking Bad, in season one episode 3 at 40:15 he shows up taking groceries out of his car.

    Can you do screen shot or have more compelling evidence? Feb 25, 2016 at 18:13

    No, 98% sure that is not Michael McKean

  • @Yorik even if it isn't MM, doesn't matter much since he obviously hadn't be cast, maybe not even named yet, but it could still be prelude to the idea of Jimmy having a brother... Mar 11, 2019 at 20:23
