Happy birthday “Sir” Michael Mckean...as far as I’m concerned he should be knighted already. The best there is.
Odenkirk is returning as Jimmy McGill in the fourth season of 'Better Call Saul' next month.
After the cult favourite series ‘Breaking Bad’ ended around five years ago, public appetite for the series was so big that it seems inevitable that its spin-off series, ‘Better Call Saul’, would also become a hit.
Not in the eyes of its star, Bob Odenkirk, however, who felt that the series was a “huge risk” and didn’t feel that the public would be interested in his character of Jimmy McGill, and his transformation into the morally questionable lawyer Saul Goodman of ‘Breaking Bad’.
“I always thought it was a huge risk, and all I wanted was them to do it for their own reasons, and not because I asked them to do it or pressured them to do it,” the actor told Entertainment Weekly in a new interview this week. “So I basically backed off every single time it was suggested to me.”

Bob Odenkirk is making his return to the role of Jimmy McGill, aka Saul Goodman in 'Better Call Saul' season 4.
When 'Breaking Bad' came to an end on AMC, fans were sad to wave goodbye to Walter White (Bryan Cranston), Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), and the chaotic world created by Vince Gilligan. Fortunately, they wouldn't have to wait too long to jump into the action once more, as it was announced there would be a spinoff series focusing on fan-favourite character, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk).
Bob Odenkirk plays Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman in 'Better Call Saul'
Serving as a prequel to 'Breaking Bad', the show kicks off with Saul in his earlier days of working as a lawyer, back when he was known as Jimmy McGill. Through three seasons to-date, we've followed him on a journey that has seen him up against some major challenges, and now with his evolution into Saul Goodman almost complete, a fourth season is right around the corner.

Following events in 'The Incredibles' whereby the Parr family defeated the supervillain Syndrome and his Omnidroid robot weapon, all five of them (yes, including baby Jack-Jack) are very much out of their initial superhero retirement.
The mother, Helen (Holly Hunter), otherwise known as Elastigirl, is dedicated to fighting crime, while her husband Bob (Craig T. Nelson), aka, Mr. Incredible stays at home to take care of the baby and the other kids, Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner). It's not such a tedious life for Bob in comparision to his wife though, because he gets to fully explore Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers.
But there's a new villain in town that needs the whole family, plus Bob's best superhero pal Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson), to defeat them. The Underminer (John Ratzenberger) is brewing a nefarious scheme at his base, with the intention of exacting war against the world and destroying humankind forever.

The actor doesn't want to "wreck" the film for fans.
Back in the director's chair for 'The Incredibles 2', Brad Bird looks set to deliver another exciting adventure for the superhero Parr family in a movie that picks up right where the original left off. Only a short teaser for the flick has been unveiled so far, but what that showcased was just how fast baby Jack-Jack was gaining super powers, shocking his parents in the process.
Bob Odenkirk isn't up for revealing all about his 'Incredibles' character
Earlier this year, it was revealed that along with the returning cast, Bob Odenkirk would be joining the slew of voice actors in an undisclosed role, and now he's been questioned on whether he'll be one of the around 25 new heroes making their way onto the screen, or a villain hoping to take the heroes down.
At a time when there's so much incertainty in the US political climate, a film like 'The Post' arrives to remind us all of the importance of whistle-blowers. Directed by Steven Spielberg, it follows the important decisions that a group of journalists had to make when they received the Pentagon Papers.
When the New York Times released a information of from a 7,000 page document on the involvement of the US in the Vietnam War, which included evidence that the Pentagon had been lying to the media and the public, The Washington Post were determined not to let it be swept under the carpet.
Editor Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) and the Post's first ever female publisher Kay Graham (Meryl Streep) are hellbent on obtaining the documents known as the Pentagon Papers so they can ultimately expose the government for the liars that they are. However, things take a dangerous turn when they release their own series of articles just weeks after The New York Times is forced to cease its own coverage of the scandal.

Through the three seasons that have aired to-date on AMC in the US and on Netflix across the globe, fans have seen McGill form an incredible bond with his colleague-turned-girlfriend Kim (Rhea Seehorn) and look after his brother Chuck (Michael McKean). He's been an incredibly loveable character and somebody you can root for, but that could all change as his transformation to Saul Goodman takes place.
