Unless you’ve been hiding out recently chances are you’ve seen, or heard of Breaking Bad, TV’s thriller that captivated audiences of all backgrounds and brought a new meaning to TV drama. The biggest drama, perhaps, came when the series ended and fans weren’t ready to let go. Lucky enough, AMC has picked up Better Call Saul, a series prequel to Breaking Bad. Michigan Avenue Magazine got the inside scoop with actor Bob Odenkirk, who graces their Spring 2015 issue.
“When I walk away from Better Call Saul there’s a lot of intense s*** going on. There’s a lot of self-revealing and self-discovery and clashing of people’s emotions and desires- I mean, these guys write really intense stuff, and it’s the same writers from Breaking Bad…”– says Odenkirk to Michigan Avenue on what to expect from Better Call Saul.
Odenkirk sat down with fellow comedic superstar Ben Stiller to chat about all things comedy, career, and his excitement for this new chapter. “…I think that’s why other comic actors often surprise people, and it seems like every year there are one or two great opportunities for a comic actor, and they surprise everyone. The weird thing is oftentimes when serious actors try to do comedy they think it means, ‘Act goofy all the time.’ Most of what we do in sketch comedy is about what you said: plain commitment, playing like you believe it,” says Odenkirk.
