Better Call Saul

AMC revealed new details from the set of the “Breaking Bad” spin-off, “Better Call Saul” during the Television Critics’ Association (TCA) Press Tour. The series is currently in production in Albuquerque, NM and is set to premier in early 2015.

 

Here is the series regular line-up we have all been waiting for. Expectations will be high as this prequel series emerges from the tremendous success of it’s counterpart. That being said, the following actors will be joining Bob Odenkirk (“Breaking Bad” and “Mr. Show  with Bob and David”) as he reprises his role of seedy Saul Goodman, the guy you better call.

Mike is back! Beloved “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks (“Beverly Hills Cop” and “Breaking Bad), is back as this prequel to the highly acclaimed series allegedly picks up six years before they encounter the notorious Walter White character.

Michael McKean

Although there is not too much revealed about his character, McKean (“This is Spinal Tap” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”) is known to deliver genuine and timeless performances. Curious to see how his character will be worked into the storyline. He does not come across as the enforcer type, so I expect to see him as some sort of professional in the show. A doctor, rival lawyer perhaps, or maybe even a judge.

Rhea Seehorn

Rhea Seehorn

The beautiful blonde actress hails from NBC’s hit comedy series “Whitney” and TNT’s comedy-drama “Franklin & Bash.” Perhaps it was her experience from the light-hearted legal drama-dy  that got her the gig. Either way, we look forward to seeing what she brings to the table.

Patrick Fabian

You have seen him in many things, but may not even remember him from one. Fabian has made his rounds in numerous hit shows such as “Castle,” “The Newsroom,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Franklin & Bash.” This veteran TV actor will assuredly blend right in.

Mando (“Orphan Black” and “Far Cry 3”) will be assuming the role of Nacho. As to what that entails, it seems like he will be on the illegitimate side of Saul’s business model.

 

Vince Gilligan, “Breaking Bad” series creator, directed the pilot episode of the series, and has already been given the go-ahead for a 13 episode second season. The debut season will consist of 10 episodes.

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path.From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film.Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
