Thanks to his brilliant work in Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk has earned tons of acclaim for his acting talents. If anything, now that his turn as the seedy Saul Goodman has come to an end, it's safe to assume that Odenkirk's name will remain popular among casting directors for years to come. However, it's important to remember that Odenkirk has a variety of abilities in the world of entertainment. Fans of sketch comedy will cite Odenkirk's tenure on Saturday Night Live and Mr. Show as evidence of his impressive talents as a writer. In addition to cranking out comedy scripts, Odenkirk also helped produce Adult Swim's groundbreaking sketch series Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! The man is basically a one-man production studio.
According to Deadline, Odenkirk will return to writing comedy with his first post- Better Call Saul project. The film, The Making of Jesus Diabetes, will reunite Odenkirk with Andrew Friedman and Michael Naughton from Better Call Saul.
Better Call Saul Emmy nominee Bob Odenkirk has been set to co-write and co-star in feature comedy The Making of Jesus Diabetes. Odenkirk is collaborating on the project with comedy actor-writers Andrew Friedman (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Michael Naughton (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), who also will co-write and co-star. Friedman and Naughton also had supporting roles in AMC hit Better Call Saul. Ellen S. Wander's Film Bridge International is launching world sales on the movie ahead of the American Film Market in early November.
