This Is Bob Odenkirk’s Favorite ‘Breaking Bad’ Scene

||

AMC

There are two types of people in the world: people who think Breaking Bad is the greatest television show to ever exist and the uneducated (or as Bane would say, the uninitiated).

Yeah, some people will argue that The Sopranos or The Wire deserves the title of GOAT TV show, but those people are wrong. In my humble, amateur opinion, Breaking Bad‘s combination of writing, cinematography, and character development puts it at the top (or front, I guess?) of Mount Rushmore.

But not far behind Breaking Bad in the pantheon of great TV shows is it’s own prequel Better Call Saul, which is centered around professional scumbag lawyer Saul Goodman.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Breaking BadEntertainment Weekly has been churning out a ton of articles, one of which reveals Bob Odenkirk’s — the actor who plays Saul Goodman in both Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul — favorite scene.

“It was so goddamn well-written,” recalls Odenkirk. “I loved that first scene where he introduces himself. It was so different in tone from anything I had done… I couldn’t believe how much Saul there was. I’m aghast, alarmed, at my own confidence in playing the character. I mean, I didn’t know what the f— I was doing. I was just taking a run at it, and more than half expecting to be told, ‘You can go home now. We’re going to get a real actor.’ I was amazed at how completely I embraced the character and dug in. The monologue is really fun, where he’s telling Walter White that he’s a fraud and that it’s a front. And he’s just enjoying himself. That was really fun to play, and I fully understood how much fun it was at the time.”

Given the type of character Goodman is, it’s unsurprising that the actor who plays him shares some of that self-confidence.

Better Call Saul will return to AMC for its fourth season on Monday, August 6, at 9 p.m. EST.
