Bob Odenkirk’s New Movie Continues His Best Career Trend After Better Call Saul

Summary

  • Bob Odenkirk’s upcoming movie “Normal” could establish him as an action star, adding to his previous success in comedy and drama.
  • “Normal” will feature Odenkirk as a small-town sheriff who uncovers a criminal conspiracy, promising plenty of action scenes.
  • Odenkirk’s new career path as an action star may surprise some fans, but it showcases his range as an actor and adds excitement to his already successful career.



Bob Odenkirk‘s career is still going strong after Better Call Saul, and an upcoming movie of his is continuing a promising trend. One of Odenkirk’s most memorable roles was as Jimmy McGill, better known by the alias Saul Goodman, in both Breaking Bad and his solo spinoff, Better Call Saul. Odenkirk was mostly known for comedy before Breaking Bad, but his role as Saul Goodman proved that Odenkirk was a powerhouse in drama as well. After Better Call Saul season 6’s ending, Odenkirk needed a new project, and one of his upcoming movies is perfectly in line with a career direction he had already started.


A new movie could establish Odenkirk in as the latest action star in addition to his previous roles in comedy and drama. Odenkirk starred in his first action role in 2021’s Nobody, where he played Hutch Mansell, a former assassin who had given up his profession to live a quiet life in the suburbs with a wife and family. Hutch was brought back into a world of violence after his home was robbed, and Odenkirk proved excellent in his action scenes. While Nobody 2 is confirmed, one of Odenkirk’s other upcoming movies could cement him as a star in the genre.

Normal Continues Bob Odenkirk’s Evolution Into An Action Star

The Script Is Also By Nobody Screenwriter Derek Kolstad


Bob Odenkirk is starring in a new action thriller titled Normal, and Derek Kolstad, the writer of Nobody, is also penning ths script for this Odenkirk vehicle. The movie is still early in development, and while there are few details available about Normal‘s plot, some aspects are known. Odenkirk will be playing a small-town sheriff who steps into the role for the town of Normal after the previous sheriff was killed. Normal promises to put Odenkirk into plenty of action scenes, as his character will discover a criminal conspiracy that runs through the entire town.

Odenkirk is no stranger to playing small-town law enforcement, as he portrayed Bill Oswalt, the Bemidji chief of police, in
Fargo
season 1.


Normal‘s intriguing plot and relatable setting could be enough to propel it to success, which would give Odenkirk even more merit as an action star. With Kolstad on board, it could also replicate all the things that made Nobody such a success. Though it seems like Odenkirk is focusing on action movies as the new direction for his career, the change from Better Call Saul can seem strange, given his character’s demeanor in the show.

Odenkirk’s New Career Path Is Surprising After Playing Saul Goodman

Goodman Relied On His Words To Get Him Out Of A Jam, Not His Fists

He could easily continue a very successful career with roles similar to Saul, but his new path as an action star is much more exciting.


Saul Goodman was an incredibly complex character, and Odenkirk played him well, but he was far from an action star. Goodman often relied exclusively on his silver tongue and tried to talk himself out of the many dangerous situations he found himself in. Odenkirk was so believable as Saul that it can be difficult to imagine him in an action movie, and Normal‘s announcement came as a surprise to some of his fans. He could easily continue a very successful career with roles similar to Saul, but his new path as an action star is much more exciting.

Nobody 2 Should Still Happen (Despite Odenkirk’s New Movie)

Nobody
was an underrated gem, and it had huge potential to become a successful series.


Nobody 2 was confirmed, but there has been little news about its development. Normal could become a spiritual sequel to Nobody, as the same writer is working on both movies, but Nobody 2 deserves to be made. Nobody was an underrated gem, and it has huge potential to become a successful series. Odenkirk was excellent as a blue-collar version of John Wick, the movie featured incredibly creative action scenes, and Hutch’s family dynamics added a unique angle that set it apart from other entries in the genre. That dynamic would be perfect for sequels to explore.
