Saul Goodman played Bob Odenkirk so well in this video.

Bob Odenkirk in Nobody (2021) is incredibly amazing. I was happy to see him in such a badass role.
Crazy Person
Crazy Person:
Glad this man's in stable condition. Wishing him a good recovery.
This man killed the roll of Saul. Couldn't imagine anyone else carrying this roll so well. Bob's a beast and carried better call Saul like a champ making me like the show even more than breaking bad.
Andrew Lai
Andrew Lai:
The fact that HE came up with the idea of making him look unattractive makes me love him even more. that's humbleness

“Well I haven’t won an Emmy yet, but I’ve come close” *PAIN*
We almost lost this man. We must protect him at all costs.

My personal favorite roles of his:
1. Dances With Wolves
2. The Bodyguard
3. Field of Dreams
4. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
5. Waterworld
Criminally underrated actor
Edit: obviously this was a joke no need to get upset boys and girls

You don’t need an Emmy. We all know that you’re one of the greatest actors and you are the heart of breaking bad imo. Can’t wait for the next season of better call Saul
Without Bob there would be no Saul, without Saul there would be no breaking bad or better call Saul. The amount of range he brings to the role is AMAZING. He has well written lines and moments but he brought them to life

So glad Odenkirk finally got widespread recognition with his portrayal of Saul Goodman. Dude is awesome!

It is actually amazing what he (and Gilligan of course) made with BCS. You would think it is just a lighthearted spinoff but they made the whole character arc even more engaging and complex than Walter White. Whether the scene is more comedic, dramatic, emotional or suspenseful Bob kills it every time.
Every tv show fan loves him, no one can hate him.. impossible.
Bob Odenkirk is a great actor and Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman is without a doubt his magnum opus. I hope the writers can stick the landing with the final season and the finale.

Just seeing him makes me smile. What an amazing actor and a human being.

Something about Bob Odenkirk is very comforting.
Seems like a really kind person and is definitely a remarkable actor and a talented comedian.

Bob not getting an emmy for Better Call Saul is the crime of the century
Edit: and Rhea Seahorn
A R R O L A T E:
His roles in 'Fargo' and 'Little Woman" were excellent too!
Meme Iselfaneye
Meme Iselfaneye:
Hope he makes it, he worked so hard to get where he's finally at.
Both Bob and Rhea Seehorn really are amazing and deserve so much recognition.
Gawd, I love him so much. A "comedic" actor that has proved to be one of the most skilled artists in evoking emotion with no words and breaking the viewer's heart with a monologue.
Ella Kaale
Ella Kaale:
I’m so glad he’s okay
Loved Bob in Undone....that was a very moving, and dramatically underrated show with a unique animation style.

Highly recommend it to those who don't know about it.
Bianca Malik
Bianca Malik:
I’ve watch breaking bad about 4 times. It’s one of the only shows on TV with excellent character development, excellent plot development and gives a slow anticipation that breads and excellent story line.
Brendan Clarkson
Brendan Clarkson:
Bob had a great little role next to David Cross in the Spielberg movie “The Post”. He didn’t do anything remarkable but it was fun to see the cast of Mr. Show in the same room as Tom Hanks.
Better Call Saul is phenomenal and everyone should watch it
Fat and Fab
Fat and Fab:
Just finished watching the show. My goodness, everyone is really great. I can't pick a favorite. I love them all. ❤❤❤

Extremely humble man. Amazing actor. 10/10

I can't believe they didn't bring up his roles in Tim & Eric. that's some of my favourite Bob moments and would have loved to hear what it was like working with them :(
André Vital Pardue
André Vital Pardue:
Can't believe they excluded his voice acting role in "Undone". That show is brilliant.
There's probably an alternate universe where Bob Odenkirk is Michael Scott and Steve Carrell is Saul Goodman
Sarah L
Sarah L:
Pull through Bob Odenkirk! We are all rooting for you.
Not going to lie “nobody” was one of my favorite movies I’ve ever seen. The action was great but also had a great comedy value that I loved. May be a predictable badass movie but it hit me different.
Gina G. Garcia
Gina G. Garcia:
You were the show. It wasn’t until you came out that I really got into it! Amazing job!

As basic as you might imagine the role of a sleezy lawyer, his character as Saul Goodman was incredibly likable and unique, he became one of my favorite roles in the Breaking Bad world, you truly see it in Better Call Saul.
Love this guy. He’s in so many of my favourite stuff. Legend.
I LOVE Bob Odenkirk. My favorite character in Breaking Bad and of course, Better Call Saul. Just soooo compelling and funny.
Ryan Mustain
Ryan Mustain:
I love Bob. He has that likability about him that will always make you root for his character.
Brian Inconceivable
Brian Inconceivable:
His role in Girlfriend’s Day was ionic and amazing as well. Fan’s will enjoy that movie I’m certain. It would have been worth mentioning. Check it out if you haven’t.
J C:
Unpopular opinion: Jimmy Mcgill is a more complex character than Walter white
Rob L
Rob L:
This guy is one of the best actors out there!!! Extremely talented he’s up there in the best of the best group
I really like that Bob doesnt want something bad to happen to Jimmy, though we all know that its probably not going to end well. It really sweet imo
Jose Guevara
Jose Guevara:
He's a beast and very humble, love him to pieces.
Halle Nelson
Halle Nelson:
Too bad he didn’t talk about Undone, it’s an incredibly underrated show
I love how when everyone talks about Vince, they always have to mimic his voice too.
I'll never forget how hard I laughed at Saul's first scene in the series when he's talking to Badger. Couldn't stop laughing for about 10 mins and missed a lot of the dialog after it.
garry gordon
garry gordon:
He will always be Saul goodman one of my favourite characters ever on TV
Bill Holt
Bill Holt:
Boy I wish Bob well in his recovery, and hope the filming of the final season can resume in time.
Mr. Show was a pioneer show. It's at the top of my list and everything underneath it was heavily influenced by it.
I always wanted to laugh everytime I see bob talking but in Nobody (2021) he really made me speechless, I got goosebumps. He nailed it again!
K P:
Love how he gives props to the Ben Stiller Show. I loved that show when it was on TV and never missed an episode. So Glad Bob has had such great success and it’s been fun watching his come up.

Bob Odenkirk is absolutely amazing as Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill I couldn't imagine anyone else playing the character other than him.
Sam Loomis
Sam Loomis:
Bob is amazing. He was so very great in BrBa, BCS, Nebraska (beautiful and hilarious heart warming film) and now Nobody.
Patry JO
Patry JO:
He's one of the most multifaceted actors I've seen, he's amazing, comedy, drama, now action, he can do it all.
He is a great a actor, but he’s also partly responsible for shaping and influencing a generation of comedy with Mr. Show.

After seeing how he did comedy and drama brilliantly I so badly wanna see him do action on Nobody! Too bad I'm outside the US so I don't know where to watch it tho :((

I love Bob Odenkirk, he's like the class clown who is actually depressed as Saul Goodman.
Smoke Life

This man right here has made me feel so proud to be named Saul
Riley Davidson

He was great in Fargo too, probably my favourite role he's done

The great thing about BB is they gave sleezy shallow looking lawyer so much depth and history through BCS and I’m confident they could do it with every single character in BB universe.

He's amazing in Nobody, a really good film.
Big part of teenage years. A genius actor.
Michael Davids
Michael Davids:
this man is a legend, anyone else notice his sideburns?
I never thought I'd say this after watching the Saul Goodman character in Breaking Bad, but Better Call Saul is better than Breaking Bad and Saul Goodman is a more interesting and realistic character than Walter White.
Victor Konishchev
Victor Konishchev:
This video is the reason I'm going to rewatch "Breaking Bad". Thank you, GQ.

Wait, why is Kevin Costner talking about Bob Odenkirk's roles?
Charles iswatching
Charles iswatching:
I love this character so much. He is touching, likable and hatable, all at once.
His portrayal of Charles Manson on the Ben Stiller Show was always a hoot.
Tomtenisse Powercool
Tomtenisse Powercool:
Nobody is what I was expecting John Wick to be when I heard all the hype about it. I absolutely love how it wasn't just mindless action all the time, but there was some genuine comedy and dialogue in there too. Not a mindblowingly good movie, but it was super solid.
