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.
There's probably an alternate universe where Bob Odenkirk is Michael Scott and Steve Carrell is Saul Goodman
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*

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.

Ella Kaale:
I’m so glad he’s okay
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

Antonio V.:
Bob not getting an emmy for Better Call Saul is the crime of the century
Edit: and Rhea Seahorn
Every tv show fan loves him, no one can hate him.. impossible.

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

Jimmy McGill is one of the most complex characters I've ever seen in my life

Hope he makes it, he worked so hard to get where he's finally at.

Unpopular opinion: Jimmy Mcgill is a more complex character than Walter white

This is just me, but the more Bob ages, the more he looks like Chuck
"I'm not a duplicitous person." Bob, you're an actor. Being duplicitous is the job!
A R R O L A T E:
His roles in 'Fargo' and 'Little Woman" were excellent too!

I can’t wait for the next season of Better Call Saul, obsessed!!!!

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 :(
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.
Christopher Martinez
Christopher Martinez:
Nice to see he’s no longer working at a Cinnabon

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

Bob's such a sweetheart.
Saul Goodman: “I once caught my second wife in bed with my stepdad.”
Outside of Mike, he’s my favorite character on BB and BCS

Wait, why is Kevin Costner talking about Bob Odenkirk's roles?

This guy looks like he knows a guy,who knows a guy,who knows another guy.

SportsFan 27:
This guy deserves an Emmy. Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman/Gene is one of the most complex & phenomenal characters ever & Bobby Odenkirk absolutely brings him to life. He took Breaking Bad up a notch & that’s saying something coz it was phenomenal even before he came in.
He’s a very charismatic man. I love BCS!
Easy Jake Oven
Easy Jake Oven:
Such a good-natured and humble guy, didn't even mention how he had triples of the Barracuda, the Road Runner, AND the Nova.
I love how when everyone talks about Vince, they always have to mimic his voice too.
Miss Overcomer
Miss Overcomer:
You were the show. It wasn’t until you came out that I really got into it! Amazing job!

This video is the reason I'm going to rewatch "Breaking Bad". Thank you, GQ.
Wrong title. Its ''Saul Goodman Breaks Down His Most Iconic Character: Bob Odenkirk''
Chilli Insanity
Chilli Insanity:
I love how he puts so much emphasis into the hair style, and yet I have never seen him with vastly different hair.... It's pretty much the same thing in everything he does other than being brushed to one side or the other or a little bit longer..
Jakub Port
Jakub Port:
Odenkirk and Banks should have got all the trophies for acting in a world.
Nick Becerra
Nick Becerra:
It's funny, he's like the opposite of Saul in real life. Just a nice guy
Stage Fish

Bob odenkirk became one of my biggest celeb crushes after BCS.
Michael Davids
Michael Davids:
this man is a legend, anyone else notice his sideburns?
His German dubber give him an unique voice 😊
His portrayal of Charles Manson on the Ben Stiller Show was always a hoot.
Many very well written shows go unheard of, so I’m glad Netflix picked up BB.
Bill Holt
Bill Holt:
Boy I wish Bob well in his recovery, and hope the filming of the final season can resume in time.

Happy Bob Odenkirk is okay after his heart attack last week! We love you Bob! Eff the award shows. You are the Best Actor to all of your fans!!
he is great in Undone too!!!! playing her dead dad in a semi animated way. I swear, he is in every show I watch and I just love him everytime
Kenneth Carrier
Kenneth Carrier:
I was a server at Pappadaux seafood kitchen in ABQ NM and I waited on Bob. He was with his kid and is such a cool guy! Super easy guest to take care of and I'm defiantly a fan of his off screen character.
weird they didn't mention Bob's best role... when he played an old gold tooth that told the truth and lived in the mouth of a homie ... lets take it south
Jose Guevara
Jose Guevara:
He's a beast and very humble, love him to pieces.
Better Call Saul is phenomenal and everyone should watch it
Edward William

Can't believe they excluded his voice acting role in "Undone". That show is brilliant.
Whylo Echoedome
Whylo Echoedome:
I've loved this guy ever since I seen him in tim and eric like 10 years ago. Legend
Mr. Show was a pioneer show. It's at the top of my list and everything underneath it was heavily influenced by it.
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.

Ben Lazeski

Saul did a great job of acting like Bob Odenkirk here
Both Bob and Rhea Seehorn really are amazing and deserve so much recognition.
Irene L
Irene L:
I'd love to hear his two other favorite sitcoms. Probably on Channel 5.
My fav character in Breaking Bad.Also loved him in Saul, it starts off slow but it's an amazing show that everyone that has watched Breaking Bad should give a chance.

Jimmy makes me never want to quit watching Better call Saul.
Halle Nelson
Halle Nelson:
Too bad he didn’t talk about Undone, it’s an incredibly underrated show
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.
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

Shailesh panjwani:
Better Call Saul is simply the most perfect show in terms of everything ..... say Cinematography, Story, Acting ..u just can't pick one negative thing
He’s so cute.

Bob Odenkirk is a great actor. He can make you laugh, cry and at the end you fall in love with the character too ♥
Blaine Hernandez
Blaine Hernandez:
Him and Brian Cranston are 2 of my favorite actors! They're both amazing and can play any characters thrown at them!
Bojana Mikic
Bojana Mikic:
Breaking bad is one of the best tv shows of all time
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.
Classic Creep Music
Classic Creep Music:
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.

3:02 one of the most interesting things i've ever heard an actor say

I'm so glad I gave BCS a try after I finished Breaking Bad. Watched all the released seasons in 2 weeks and felt empty lol. Saul is amazing thanks to Bob Odenkirk. Can't imagine anyone else acting out that character

7:28, when Jimmy couldn't bear it at the end of his escape. LOL
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.

If he doesn't win the emmy for season six I'm not watching the emmys ever again
Seyed Sajjad Daneshmand
Seyed Sajjad Daneshmand:
I love Bob Odenkirk, he's like the class clown who is actually depressed as Saul Goodman.
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.
