Don’t drink and drive…but if you do, call me!
Bob Odenkirk, who you would never knew was a comedian and a damn funny one at that as he’s excellent in his dramatic role as Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad will be appearing in his own spinoff show set with the working title of “Better Call Saul” that will be a 1-hour formatted show exploring the evolution of the character before Walter and Jesse became part of his life.
