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.”
