‘Better Call Saul’ Star Bob Odenkirk. Ten Things You Should Know.

‘Better Call Saul’ TV show premiere on AMC on February 8, 2015. Then, tomorrow! It’s a spin-off of ‘Breaking Bad’ focusing on the life of small-time lawyer Saul Goodman (actor Bob Odenkirk) six years before his appearance on Breaking Bad.

Today, ten things you should know about Bob Odenkirk:

1.- Robert John “Bob” Odenkirk was born on October 22, 1962, in Berwyn, Illinois, and was raised in nearby Naperville.

2.- His father’s battle with alcoholism would influence Odenkirk’s decision to avoid alcohol almost completely.

3.- Bob Odenkirk went to Naperville North High School and attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, then transferred to Southern Illinois in Carbondale, Illinois.

4.- He began his foray into comedy writing as a radio DJ for WIDB (Carbondale, Illinois), his local college station at SIU-Carbondale.

5.- He has said his strongest comedic influence was Monty Python’s Flying Circus, primarily due to its combination of cerebral and simple humor.

6.- In the 1980s and 1990s, Bob Odenkirk worked as a writer for different TV television shows: Saturday Night Live, Get a Life, The Ben Stiller Show and The Dennis Miller Show.

7.- In the mid-1990s, Odenkirk and David Cross created the Emmy-nominated sketch comedy program Mr. Show with Bob and David, which ran for four seasons and ultimately became a cult success.

8.- In the early 2000s, he produced Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!.

9.- He has also directed three films: Melvin Goes to Dinner (2003), Let’s Go to Prison (2006) and The Brothers Solomon (2007).

10.- Of course, he is celebrated for his role as criminal lawyer Saul Goodman on the AMC crime drama series Breaking Bad.
