Will Bob Odenkirk follow in Bryan Cranston’s footsteps at the Screen Actors Guild Awards?

Will Bob Odenkirk follow in Bryan Cranston’s footsteps at the Screen Actors Guild Awards?
One of the most depressing statistics of awards season is “Better Call Saul’s” record at the Emmys, where the show is currently 0 for 46 with one year of eligibility left. But while Bob Odenkirk might have fallen to “Squid Game’s” Lee Jung-jae this year, things are looking much brighter for the beloved actor at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Odenkirk, who originated the role of criminal lawyer Saul Goodman on “Breaking Bad” before leading the show’s exquisite prequel spin-off for six seasons, is currently sitting in first place in Gold Derby’s combined odds to score a nomination for Best TV Drama Actor. With two Experts and five Editors predicting him to win, he leads Jason Bateman of Netflix’s “Ozark” in second, Adam Scott of Apple TV+’s “Severance” in third, Jonathan Pryce of Netflix’s “The Crown” in fourth and Jeff Bridges of FX’s “The Old Man” in fifth.

Better Call Emmy: Vince Gilligan and Rhea Seehorn reunite on new series for Apple TV+
Rhea Seehorn may have lost her first Emmy bid for the final season of “Better Call Saul” but she could well be back in the hunt next year. Our sister site Deadline is reporting that she is reuniting with that show’s creator, Vince Gilligan for his new drama that has just landed a two-season commitment from Apple TV+.

As Nellie Andreeva notes, “the new series is said to be set in our world while putting a tweak on it, bending reality and focusing on people and exploring the human condition in an unexpected, surprising way. Thought-provoking but not a morality tale, the series also is expected to carry the signature Gilligan tone that infuses drama with humor.”

Gilligan has won four of his whopping 22 Emmy bids, picking up a pair as a producer of the crime drama “Breaking Bad” in 2013 and 2014 and two more for short form series — “Los

Vince Gilligan Reteams With Better Call Saul's Rhea Seehorn For An Apple TV+ Series With Two-Season Order
The dynamic duo is back! A new series from Vince Gilligan has been given a rare two-season guarantee at Apple TV+, and it will star none other than Rhea Seehorn. Variety reports that exact plot details are being kept under wraps, and with the somewhat-definitive end of the "Breaking Bad" franchise confirmed, we can expect this series to be wholly original. Not only that, but we can probably expect the series lead to not be as slimy or conniving as Walter White or Jimmy McGill.

"After fifteen years, I figured it was time to take a break from writing antiheroes," wrote Gilligan in a statement announcing the project, "and who's more heroic than the brilliant Rhea Seehorn?"

Well said, sir! This is slated to be Seehorn's first show in which she is the undeniable lead, which the showrunner says is "long past" due, and we agree! /Film has not been

New Vince Gilligan series: Rhea Seehorn has been cast in the lead role
Last month, it was announced that Sony Pictures TV had given a two-season order for a new series from Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan – a series that has been described as a “blended, grounded genre drama” that’s something along the lines of the classic Rod Serling show The Twilight Zone. Now The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Gilligan’s Better Call Saul cast member Rhea Seehorn is following him over to the new show and has signed on to play the lead role. This untitled series will be released through Apple TV+.

Former Sony Pictures TV presidents Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, who greenlit Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul when they were at Sony, are now the heads of Apple’s streaming portfolio. Former Sony Pictures TV Studios co-president Chris Parnell is now at Apple as well, working as the senior TV programming executive.

Margo Martindale and Amy Landecker to Return as Guest Stars for ‘Your Honor’ Season 2
The second season of Showtime’s “Your Honor” is right around the corner. The second installment of the series, starring Bryan Cranston, will debut in December.

On Tuesday, Showtime revealed that Margo Martindale and Amy Landecker will return as guest stars. It was previously announced that the upcoming season will guest star Rosie Perez.

Cranston stars in “Your Honor” as Michael Desiato, a respected New Orleans judge whose upstanding life is derailed when his teenage son’s accidental hit-and-run killing of the son of notorious crime boss Jimmy Baxter (Michael Stuhlbarg) led to a high-stakes game of lies, deceit and impossible choices.

This Was Slippin' Kimmy's Greatest Moment Of Chicanery On Better Call Saul

This Was Slippin' Kimmy's Greatest Moment Of Chicanery On Better Call Saul
This article contains potential spoilers up to the end of "Better Call Saul."

Throughout the show's six-season run, there was always a question mark hanging over the fate of Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) on "Better Call Saul." Though a prequel to "Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul" introduced Kim and other characters we had never met like Nacho Varga (Michael Mando). Not all of those characters would make it out of the series alive. Some fans feared the worst: namely, that "Better Call Saul" might go truly dark and make Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) totally irredeemable by having Kim become a casualty of his criminal actions.

When "Better Call Saul" first started, it seemed to position Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) as the show's co-lead. By the end, Kim had established herself as the show's real Mvp, even if the Emmy Awards somehow didn't get the memo, choosing instead to

‘Better Call Saul’ and More All-Time Great TV Shows That Won Zero Emmys

‘Better Call Saul’ and More All-Time Great TV Shows That Won Zero Emmys
The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards came and went, but the Television Academy never called Saul. Fans of Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad” spin-off were crestfallen on Monday: forced to accept, after six critically acclaimed seasons, that “Better Call Saul” had somehow — miraculously, inexplicably, maddeningly — still never won an Emmy.

It was an especially painful blow to the ocean of Bob Odenkirk supporters out there, who came out of the woodwork en masse last year when the lovable star collapsed on set following a heart attack. For his 63 outings as Saul Goodman (99 if you count his award-worthy but yet again unrecognized “Breaking Bad” guest performances), Odenkirk earned five Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series nominations.

AMC’s popular crime series enjoyed its sixth Outstanding Drama Series nod in 2022, but lost out once more to HBO’s “Succession.” Further Emmy accolades for “Better Call Saul” include nominations for: Outstanding Writing for

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2022 Emmy Awards

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2022 Emmy Awards
The 74th Emmy Awards took place last night live from Los Angeles, and while the telecast's vibe can perhaps be described as "boring in a good way," the decisions Emmy voters made on their ballots were actually pretty shocking. While some artists who have put in great work for decades were finally rewarded, other clear frontrunners were snubbed.

There wasn't a decisive sweep in any of the three major categories, though "Ted Lasso," "Succession," and "The White Lotus" each took home some significant wins. The star-studded slate of nominees -- especially in the limited series category -- also made it more clear than ever that TV is the place to be these days. Let's dig into the night's biggest wins, losses, and voting surprises.

How ‘Breaking Bad’s “Dead Freight” Episode Takes Influence from the Western

How ‘Breaking Bad’s “Dead Freight” Episode Takes Influence from the Western
The critically acclaimed show Breaking Bad, its spinoff film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Film, and its series successor Better Call Saul, which just had its series finale, are all known for taking inspiration from various sides of pop culture. The drug trade and cartel aspect of Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s universe, for instance, is reminiscent of many mobster and gangster films such as Goodfellas and shows such as The Sopranos. Better Call Saul, specifically in its use of black and white, takes influence from film noir. However, as Vince Gilligan tells Collider, “I think of Breaking Bad as a Western in a great many senses.”

Better Call Saul And Breaking Bad Star Giancarlo Esposito Wants To Play Gus Fring Again

Better Call Saul And Breaking Bad Star Giancarlo Esposito Wants To Play Gus Fring Again
With "Better Call Saul" having come to an immaculately landed end in August, some fans of the "Breaking Bad" universe are already clamoring for a return to the seedy underbelly of the Albuquerque underground crime scene. Others feel that the ending of "Better Call Saul" was a fitting close to the story of the world of "Breaking Bad." However, with creator Vince Gilligan claiming he's done with the "Breaking Bad" universe for good, the potential of another spin-off series starring familiar characters seems to be waning.

Giancarlo Esposito, the man behind the ruthless and professional drug kingpin Gus Fring, is among those open to revisiting that world. The story of Gus Fring was laid out and wrapped up pretty well within the two shows, but, according to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Esposito, who stars in AMC's upcoming drama, "Parish," is interested in a potential exploration of the character's mysterious origins.
