Better Call Saul Teaser Trailer Released
Now slated for US release in February after already suffering a network push back, fans of the hugely popular Vince Gilligan creation were treated on Monday to the first taste of Bob Odenkirk in his lead role as shifty Albuquerque attorney Saul Goodman, the legal representative of chem teacher turned meth cook Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in the original “Breaking Bad”.
