In this episode of the Wait Wait… If you’re a comedy person, you know Bob Odenkirk from the cult classic sketch series Mr. Show. If you’re a drama person, or a meth person, you know him as the shyster lawyer Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad. Now he has a new show on the IFC called The Birthday Boys.
We’ve invited Odenkirk to play a game called “Better not call Saul.” Since he plays a less-than-noble lawyer on Breaking Bad, we’re going to ask him three questions about inspiring, even heroic lawyers. If he gets two out of three right, he’ll win a prize for one of our listeners — Carl’s voice on their voicemail and eight barrels filled with $10 million each.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:
And now the game who does a bunch of things really well tries his hand at something else. If you’re a comedy person, you know Bob Odenkirk from “Mr. Show,” the cult classic sketch series that he did with David Cross. If you’re a drama person, or if you’re interested in meth, you know him as the shyster lawyer Saul Goodman on “Breaking Bad.”
He’s got a new show on the IFC called “The Birthday Boys” and a new book out, as well. Bob Odenkirk, welcome to WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME!
(APPLAUSE)
BOB ODENKIRK: Oh, my goodness. Hi there, thank you so much for the warm welcome.
SAGAL: Very excited, we’ve got to ask first about “Breaking Bad.”
LUKE BURBANK: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
(LAUGHTER)
BURBANK: I haven’t finished it yet.
SAGAL: You haven’t finished it yet?
(APPLAUSE)
SAGAL: Well, all of us – OK, first question. All of us who have finished “Breaking Bad” or who are watching it had to be so careful about spoilers for the last season. You’ve known for, like, what? When did you finish shooting it, six months ago, eight months ago?
ODENKIRK: Yeah, but I didn’t read the final episode and a half. I didn’t read anything I wasn’t in, how about that, for the last…
(LAUGHTER)
