I enjoyed speaking with Raymond! He was very nice on the phone. We only had about 10 minutes to chat. I hope you enjoy it. Sounds like Monday's episode is going to be amazing!!

Here is the audio of our interview. I hope you enjoy it!

If the audio is not streaming well, please right-click on this link and save it to your computer. It should work better that way!

We should have the transcript up soon. Here are the questions I asked:

1. Great to have the show back, are you excited about season 4?

2. What can you tell us about what Julio is going through now?

3. Why does Julio have so much anger?

4. Did he really get treatment? Is he all better?

5. What else happens in season 4?

6. Have you worked up a back story about Julio?

7. Will you be returning to season 2 of "Better Call Saul?"


Raymond Cruz (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) of TNTís Major Crimes is in a powerful upcoming episode that is important to both Raymond and show creator James Duff. Sanchez returns to the Major Crimes unit after being placed on suspension over a questionable use of force, but struggles to rebuild relationships and trust with his fellow officers.

He talks about this exciting episode and what is in store for him this season this Friday June 12th from 10amPT to 11amPT-ish.

Here is what we can look forward to next week:

"Sorry I Missed You" Ė Monday, June 15, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

When a dead body pops out of the trunk at the end of a car chase, the squad must untangle connections between a superstar chef; a middle-aged pediatric psychiatrist and his second, much younger wife; and a bankruptcy lawyer (Paul Schultze) whose problematic representation threatens to derail the investigation. Rusty continues his attempt to identify the murder victim who called herself Alice Herrera, inadvertently threatening the case against her murderer. Kathe Mazur, Ransford Doherty, Jessie Schram, Brandon Barash, Garrett Coffey, and Victoria Platt guest star.
