• Bob Odenkirk, talking to The Hollywood Reporter about Better Call Saul, explains that Saul “was putting up a front [on Breaking Bad] so we don’t really know who he is at all. So now we get to invent this whole world of who he might be.”
• Variety interviews Bob Odenkirk, who says of playing Jimmy that “it’s a great challenge and a great joy to see a dark, emotional scene where a character is struggling internally and then two days later be doing a scene where I’m shooting a commercial, with the character’s inspiration and joy and ego on display.”
• Gold Derby examines Bob Odenkirk’s Emmy submission, the Season 2 finale, remarking that he “gives a wonderfully layered performance in this episode. He shows several different sides of Jimmy simultaneously.”

• Patrick Fabian’s alma mater, Penn State, interviews the actor, who explains that Better Call Saul is “a real crowning achievement in a lot of ways.”
