We're still on the fence about AMC's decision to spin 'Breaking Bad' off into a prequel-sequel of sorts with Bob Odenkirk's 'Better Call Saul,' and while we know at least one familiar face will be around, we've been wondering who else might pop up. Now, we've learned of several new characters 'Better Call Saul' will introduce as part of its regular cast, but can the show succeed without its most popular franchise stars?
FX's Coen brothers-adapted 'Fargo' TV series gave us a strong look at its new adaptation with the first official trailer a few days ago, though a few notable cast members were missing. Now, the latest trailer has the whole kit and kaboodle on display, including 'Sherlock''s Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Adam Goldberg, 'Always Sunny''s Glenn Howerton, 'Breaking Bad''s Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh and Oliver Platt!
FX's Coen brothers-adapted series 'Fargo' has released a number of provocative teasers to date, don't cha know, but you're darn-tootin' we had our first honest look at the story. The first full trailer for 'Fargo' has arrived, starring such fan-favorites as 'Breaking Bad''s Bob Odenkirk, 'Sherlock''s Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton and more, you betcha!
We weren't over the moon by the initial revelation that AMC would parlay 'Breaking Bad''s colossal success into prequel spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' but if we have to explore Saul Goodman's pre-Walter White past, our favorite New Mexican lawyer will at least keep some fine company. 'Breaking Bad' veteran Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) will co-captain 'Better Call Saul' alongside Bob Odenkirk, but how regular will Mike's presence be?
Last week we got our first look look at FX's forthcoming 'Fargo' TV series, before the network revealed the Coen brothers-adapted drama's April premiere date at the TCA press tour, though at last the star-studded true crime drama series has a cast photo gallery worthy of its pedigree. See the stars of FX's 'Fargo' in a full set of photos from the premiere!
We're still in enough disbelief over 'Breaking Bad''s ultimate end this past year, let alone that Saul Goodman's story will continue as spinoff prequel 'Better Call Saul,' but it seems we may return to 'Breaking Bad''s world even sooner than anticipated. Netflix has closed a deal with AMC to stream 'Better Call Saul' through all territories, making the drama available sooner than we'd expected in 2014.
While rumor has it that the 'Breaking Bad' spinoff (tentatively titled) 'Better Call Saul' could unfold as much post "Felina" as before we met Walter White's clownish lawyer, we still have a relatively small picture of what story Saul Goodman might have to tell. Enter series star Bob Odenkirk, who claims we might see Saul in the place we'd least expect to find him: a court of law!
Love or hate that 'Breaking Bad' will likely spin its enduring popularity into the prequel spinoff series 'Better Call Saul,' the question remains why creator Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould chose to set the drama in the past, rather than explore other aspects of the character. Prequel discussion may be premature however, as Bob Odenkirk claims we might see a bit of post-'Breaking Bad' Saul as well!
Like 'Fargo' herself, casting for FX's forthcoming adaptation of the 1996 Coen brothers classic has been a bit slow-moving, at least until today. The cable network opened the floodgates on its 'Fargo' TV series, revealing new parts to play from 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul' star Bob Odenkirk, 'Private Practice''s Kate Walsh, 'Always Sunny''s Glenn Howerton, Adam Goldberg and more!
In 1995, former 'SNL' writer and actor Bob Odenkirk teamed up with his friend, comedian David Cross for a new sketch show for HBO: the subversive and witty 'Mr. Show with Bob and David,' featuring a line-up of alternative comedians and writers who, along with Cross and Odenkirk, would go on to have much bigger careers. The show was canceled in 1998 after just four seasons, and while it was nominated for four Primetime Emmy awards, it never took home a trophy.
15 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see how far they've come now.
