Odenkirk stars as lawyer Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul, which takes place before the events of Breaking Bad. He's been nominated for four lead actor Emmys for the role.

The actor previously won two trophies for writing on Saturday Night Live (1989) and The Ben Stiller Show (1992).

Better Call Saul had just begun production on its final season in April, Odenkirk previously told James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden, though it's unclear how much filming time on the season remains.

"I know as I get closer to the end of it, I'm going to have to somehow reconcile with saying goodbye to this gift that I got from the universe. It's hard to take into account how much it brought into my life," Odenkirk told Corden at the time, adding that playing Goodman had "changed" his life.
