Bob Odenkirk

Bob Odenkirk, whose show Better Call Saul (a prequel of sorts for Breaking Bad), sits down with Live Wire head writer Courtenay Hameister to discuss his comedic influences, his transition from character actor to leading man, and his latest book A Load of Hooey. He also manages to offend Donald Rumsfeld and reveal how he conquered his very short-lived stage fright, so you're not going to want to miss it.
