Bob Odenkirk Says Working On 'SNL' Was A 'Major Struggle'

Bob Odenkirk has opened up about his time on Saturday Night Live in the ’90′s when he was 25.

“Working on Saturday Night Live was a major struggle, professionally and personally, even though I learned a lot. I didn’t really fit in very well,” the 54-year-old actor recently expressed (via The Guardian). “I got a lot out of it, but the show got very little out of it.”

“During SNL, I spent many years as a cult presence and I’m very comfortable with it,” Bob added. “I still perceive myself that way. But occasionally I’m reminded that I’m on these other shows [Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul] that are much bigger than anything I did before. I went to Canada for a festival and the customs guard talked to me about what a fan he was of Breaking Bad, and what a fan his sister in Romania was – it blew my mind. That sense of it playing around the world, of people talking to their family members about it.”

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.
