"Better Call Saul"

11 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more clips of footage from AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel series "Better Call Saul", debuting February 8, 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Irish 'criminal' lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman':

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. 

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

Saul Goodman’s Time to Shine at ‘Better Call Saul’ Premiere

29 January 2015 11:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With little meth in sight, the cast and crew of “Better Call Saul” gathered Thursday night at L.A. Live for the AMC/Sony Pictures TV drama’s premiere, with “Breaking Bad” cast members including Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, R.J. Mitte and Betsy Brandt in attendance, along with Jonathan Banks, who also has a role in the new series.

No meth, of course, because this isn’t Walter White’s show — it’s Saul Goodman’s. Or, more appropriately, it’s Jimmy McGill’s, as the story begins in 2002, long before Jimmy McGill, attorney at law, becomes Saul Goodman, modern-day Tom Hagen.

Bob Odenkirk, who played Goodman in “Breaking Bad” and stars as McGill in “Better Call Saul,” said that to go back in time to Saul’s origins required completely revisiting the character.

The project is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Three Days of the Condor author James Grady, with the studio planning an action-comedy update of the 1970s conspiracy thriller genre, with a tone that is described as a cross between One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Hangover. Wes Jones, whose screenplay Young Republicans topped the Black List in 2010, has been set to write the screenplay adaptation.

Mad Dogs will use the book as a "jumping off point," centering on three U.S. intelligence operatives who have been deemed crazy by their superiors, thanks to their dysfunctional lifestyles. They are sent to a secret government-run mental hospital for spies, where they become convinced that someone is trying to kill them. They try to hatch an escape plan, but when it »

Cole also showed off his serious dance moves in corn fields, on train tracks, and in one number that involved a boy band routine. And we can’t forget to mention the beach scene of him confessing his love for Selena while drawing her name in the sand.

For those who are Internet-savvy, you may know Cole is part of the popular Vine group, Dem White Boyz, which have over 5 million followers, so naturally they had to make a Vine about the prom.
