Actor Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul Goodman (Jimmy McGill), a devious but successful lawyer in the TV shows Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, shared a trailer for his new movie, Nobody, and explained why he was making an action movie.
As you might recall, Better Call Saul won Outstanding Drama Series awards at the 2020 Emmy Awards, while the series’ lead roles Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn never won.
However, this does not seem to demoralize both actors, and both continue on new projects. Odenkirk surprised everyone with his new movie for the fans who are looking forward to the 6 seasons.
On Twitter, the 58-year-old actor shared the trailer of his new movie, Nobody, which will be released on February 18, 2021. The film tells a bystander who intervenes to help a woman being harassed by a group of men becomes the target of a vengeful drug lord.
He revealed that he was making an action movie for a number of personal reasons to give hints about his character’s features. One of them is ‘vengeance.’
Here’s what he wrote:
“I made an action movie. For personal reasons. First one being: Vengeance.”
Many fans claimed that his movie was similar to the John Wick movie starring Keanu Reeves. His co-star Tony Dalton, who is known for his role as Lalo Salamance in Better Call Saul, praised him and commented:
“Dont call 911 MFs’!!!!!!! This looks awesome Bob.”
A fan said:
“So basically John Wick but starring Bob Odenkirk an a supposedly everyday family man.”
