Get to Know Bob Odenkirk - Better Call Saul

21 July 2020
Cool facts about our leading man on Better Call Saul.

There's no doubt that no one can bring the character of Saul Goodman to life quite like the talented and witty Bob Odenkirk. We first saw him excel as the smart-talking, fast-conning, and superbly brilliant Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad which eventually led to the character becoming a TV icon on Better Call Saul.

Let's take a look at some interesting facts about this well-seasoned actor.

  • Bob drew his inspiration for acting from watching the amazing Monthy Python.
  • He created and starred in Mr. Show with Bob and David, a famous comedy sketch show with fellow actor David Cross.
  • A witty writer, he wrote for Saturday Night Live, The Ben Stiller Show, and Late Night With Conan O' Brien. This makes him a comic genius in our books!
  • His brother is a writer for The Simpsons. Talent definitely runs in the family.
  • Apart from writing, he has also starred in high profile movies such as Nebraska, The Post, Incredibles 2, and Little Women. We reckon that he nailed each role!
  • He claims that he never watched Breaking Bad until season 3!
