Bob Odenkirk Is Surpised 'Breaking Bad's Walter White Was 'So Popular'!

Bob Odenkirk has opened up about the new season of Better Call Saul and the art of the anti-hero.

“A character can be so bad and people are still on their side? You think, really? How bad can you be?,” the 54-year-old actor recently expressed (via BigIssue). “People sympathised with Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston)! Vince Gilligan [Breaking Bad creator] said that he hated this guy, how he couldn’t live in that life anymore, how he was an awful person. Maybe it’s who gets the most screen time. Maybe your brain says, ‘yep, that’s the hero’. Because Walter White was horrible, and people still wanted him to win. The surprise is that he was so popular.”

“The phenomenon of the anti-hero, of people identifying with an ethically compromised person, is very curious,” Bob added. “My experience of getting this show to happen is probably vastly different to a young actor who’s auditioning like crazy and then suddenly someone writes him a show. I’ve been in this business for a long time and I’ve watched shows go and fail, tried at things. I’ve written 15 to 20 pilots that didn’t go. It wasn’t as big as an excitement for me until we were done with the first season and I saw the billboards go up and I thought, holy shit I’ve got a show! This is a year and a half after the announcement.”

Season three of Better Call Saul is on Netflix, with new episodes weekly every Tuesday.

Giancarlo Esposito's Gus Fring Appears in New 'Better Call Saul' Promo!

Giancarlo Esposito is returning to his iconic role of Gus Fring for AMC’s Better Call Saul and the first footage of his appearance in the new episodes was just released!

The third season of the hit Breaking Bad spin-off series will be premiering on April 10.

Giancarlo spoke to Vulture about why his initial reaction to doing the spin-off was “no.”

“It took time; a lot of time. It’s like when you make a really good soufflé. You know what I mean? It’s very, very difficult to have it rise without falling and also have it be remarkable. So for me to try to re-create that soufflé without it falling was almost impossible,” he said.

Watch the new trailer below.

VIDEO: 'Better Call Saul' Promo Teases 'Breaking Bad' Star's Return!

Giancarlo Esposito‘s big return as meth powerhouse Gus Fring to the Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul has just been teased in this new promo!

AMC debuted a brand new spot as a commercial for the fried chicken chain Los Pollos Hermanos, which Gus used as a front for his meth business throughout several seasons on Breaking Bad.

You may remember, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Gus went head-to-head and Gus ended up getting blown up at a nursing home.

Season two of Better Call Saul teased the return of Gus, and this promo makes it seem all but confirmed.

Season three of the show is set to debut this spring.
