Better Call Saul is currently in production for its sixth season. It is a prequel to the AMC crime series Breaking Bad, which introduced Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, the criminal defence attorney for the show’s protagonist, Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

Odenkirk’s spin-off traces his character’s evolution from a two-bit scam artist turned struggling public defender named Jimmy McGill into the morally conflicted lawyer Saul Goodman, who ultimately makes a career representing drug traffickers and underworld figures.

His performances on Better Call Saul have earned Odenkirk four Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

His motion picture credits include supporting roles in such films as Nebraska, The Post and Little Women.

More recently he starred in the big-screen action thriller Nobody.

He previously worked as a comedy writer for Saturday Night Live and The Ben Stiller Show.
