Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul – Nominee, Best Performance By An Actor In A TV Series – Drama
Second time Globe nominee Bob Odenkirk for Better Call Saul, the spin-off series from Breaking Bad, doesn’t read his scripts very closely. Maybe the comedian in him is joking, but here’s what he told us – “I really don’t. I read the parts I am in and then I skim the parts I am not in. It’s not just because I am a lazy son of a bitch. It’s because as an actor, I feel like I should only know what my character knows and I shouldn’t know what’s going on off-screen.” Be that as it may, his method is obviously working. A critical and fan favorite, the show has been renewed for a third season. Set six years before Breaking Bad, Odenkirk plays Saul Goodman, now going by the name Jimmy McGill, a shady and resourceful lawyer who will do anything to stay out of court. Fans are still waiting, by the end of the second season, for him to become Saul.
