Spy hears that actor, producer, comedian and writer Bob Odenkirk will be in Auckland later this month to promote the latest series of his drama Better Call Saul, which will air on Lightbox.

Odenkirk is most famous as Saul Goodman, the wise-cracking, semi-sleazy attorney in the award-winning Breaking Bad.

Shortly before the series finale of Breaking Bad, the Better Call Saul spinoff was announced. It charts the beginnings of the character, formerly named Jimmy McGill.

Odenkirk’s work on the spin-off has seen him nominated in the last two Emmy Awards for Lead Actor in a Drama, and last year he was also nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series.
