The fact that the show is called Better Call Saul means that you should expect to see more than just Jimmy McGill (played by Bob Odenkirk) on the screen throughout the series. While he’s definitely going to be involved in the action, you can bet that there will be some other familiar faces popping up as well. Here’s your guide to some of the recurring cast members on Better Call Saul and what they have been doing prior to joining the cast of this AMC show. Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast

SEASON 6 Recurring Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Ed Begley Jr. Portrayed Clifford Main
a former investigator at Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill. He was promoted by Chuck before he left, and wants Jimmy to work with him. After a falling out with Howard in which they apparently had some sort of tussle (Witness), he’s still there and Howard is keen for Jimmy not to be. They’re having an adversarial relationship over something that happened in Inflatable . It seems Clifford was also involved with Shelly.
Tina Parker Portrayed Francesca Liddy
Francesca is Jimmy’s ex-wife. They got married pretty quickly and their marriage ended just as fast when Jimmy cheated on her with his first post-Saul job colleague, a woman named Kim Wexler. Francesca has some issues with Jimmy (mainly that he left her after stealing thousands of dollars from his Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill clients). In fact, she went as far as to sue him for $6 million after he failed to appear in court – which he lost by default. Oh yeah, and she hired Mike Ehrmantraut to hunt him down, after learning that he was hiding out at Nacho’s father’s house.
Mark Margolis Portrayed Hector Salamanca
Hector is a ruthless drug lord with a prosthetic skull, who plays an important role in Breaking Bad . In Better Call Saul , he’s on his deathbed but still terrorizing everyone around him. Known as The Cartel, Hector has three children, two of whom were murdered by Walter White and Jesse Pinkman during their meth operation. His third child, Marco Salamanca , plays a key role in Los Pollos Hermanos.
Daniel and Luis Moncada Portrayed Leonel and Marco Salamanca
While Better Call Saul is a series about Jimmy McGill, it’s also very much a story about Mike Ehrmantraut. The show has slowly been filling in more details about Mike’s backstory and providing us with more information about his connection to Gus Fring and Hector Salamanca. Both Daniel and Luis Moncada are no strangers to playing criminals; Daniel has appeared on 24 and Luis previously played a dangerous gangster on Breaking Bad . Luis Moncada also has some experience in action-packed stunts; he’s performed in over 30 motion pictures, including all three of The Fast & Furious films.
Kerry Condon Portrayed Stacey Ehrmantraut
Stacey is Chuck’s second wife. She’s aware of Jimmy’s vocation, but doesn’t know he has a brother. (IMDB) In Nailed, she and Chuck are having marital problems and may be on their way to divorce. In Five-O, she tells Jimmy that they’ve decided not to sell their house after all, indicating that they’re still together at least as of then.
Season 1 Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Faith Healey Portrayed Abigail Zoe Lewis
Right before Chuck McGill—Jimmy’s brother, another lawyer at Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill—attempted suicide (for reasons unbeknownst to anyone outside of his immediate family), he decided that he was going to bring down Jimmy. To do so, he went through all of Jimmy’s records and found out that there was one person who had used HHM as a law firm for legal matters: Rebecca Walters. Walters called herself Rita Flynn after she used her maiden name for some legal matters and got a driver’s license in the name of Rita instead of Rebecca. The thing is, Rita Flynn died because a car crashed into her two years ago on Christmas Eve 2013.
Eileen Fogarty Portrayed Mrs. Nguyen
Eileen Fogarty’s previous television credits include My Boys, Two and a Half Men, Boston Legal, NCIS, and most recently Bones. She also has had recurring roles on such TV shows as Community, NCIS: New Orleans, The Mentalist , Ghost Whisperer , Criminal Minds and a starring role in Lifetime TV’s Sunset Daze in 1996. In addition she has guest starred on such series as Californication, Law & Order, CSI, The Shield, and others.
Peter Diseth Portrayed Deputy District Attorney Bill Oakley
Bill Oakley is a recurring character on Better Call Saul. He is portrayed by Peter Diseth. He first appears in Witness. He is head of criminal and civil cases at Kim Wexler’s law firm Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill. His job depends on being able to predict outcomes, and he admits that it makes him feel uneasy if he can’t do so accurately.
Joe DeRosa Portrayed Dr. Caldera
DeRosa is best known for his stand-up comedy career and appearing in film and television projects including, but not limited to, Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show and Inside Amy Schumer, Netflix’s Master of None and Hulu’s Quick Draw. He has been touring with comedy troupe The Dead Alewives since 2008. DeRosa made a memorable appearance on Better Call Saul as Dr. Caldera – now he returns for Season 3 as a series regular! Here is our interview with Joe DeRosa from 2015.
Dennis Boutsikaris Portrayed Rich Schweikart
Character/Actor/Show. Dennis Boutsikaris was an actor before Better Call Saul and he’s still an actor today, but he’s also Rich Schweikart, one of Chuck McGill’s many clients at Hamlin Hamlin McGill. The fact that most of Boutsikaris’ scenes are opposite Bob Odenkirk has only added to his effectiveness as Rich in Season 1, as viewers have watched him change from a well-meaning if naive client into someone who knows just how awful Chuck is as a lawyer. It wouldn’t be surprising if Rich’s popularity leads him to appear again in later seasons—it certainly helped Michael McKean’s character, Jimmy’s brother Chuck.
Mark Proksch Portrayed Daniel “Pryce” Wormald
Proksch appeared in season 4, episode 5 of Better Call Saul, playing Daniel Pryce Wormald. Pryce is a new character in Season 4, and despite his nickname, he is not Gus Fring’s henchman from Breaking Bad. But still, we assume he’ll play an important role moving forward into next season. Proksch is best known for his roles on Insecure and Billions (where he was married to actress Asia Kate Dillon). He also recently appeared in The Outsider and will next appear on Barry as well as The Sinner on USA Network. He has also appeared in a recurring role on Mad Men and performed stand-up comedy at many venues including New York’s prestigious Comedy Cellar.
Brandon K. Hampton Portrayed Ernesto
Ernesto is a drug dealer and recovering addict with a kind heart who cares for his mother. He approaches Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) looking for a way to launder some money and gives him a helpful tip that allows Mike to save Chuck’s (Michael McKean) life in exchange for an opportunity at legitimate employment at his parking lot. We see Ernesto again in season 4 when Nacho (Michael Mando) asks him if he can provide security for one of Hector Salamanca’s (Mark Margolis) drug pickups. He agrees but is actually working with Nacho as part of Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) plan, putting himself on Gus’ radar.
Josh Fadem Portrayed Joey Dixon (“Camera Guy”)
Joey Dixon, who goes by Camera Guy, is an employee at a pawn shop. As his name suggests, he works with cameras and takes pictures of various items that pass through his store. He also makes an effort to take as many selfies as possible with different customers (including Jimmy). However, as much time as he spends on his phone, it’s always frustrating for him when it dies. Joey was inspired by Mike Ehrmantraut in Breaking Bad .
Julian Bonfiglio Portrayed Sound Guy
Bonfiglio plays a sound guy who works on Better Call Saul. Prior to his time as a background actor, Bonfiglio worked as an assistant director in New York City and is currently working on his own web series. In his free time, he likes to go biking and play ultimate Frisbee. He finds it hard to stay away from social media. And he has a weakness for women with glasses. He is currently single and looking for love in New Mexico where Better Call Saul is filmed.
Jeremy Shamos and Julie Ann Emery
According to a Reddit AMA, Jeremy Shamos and Julie Ann Emery, who play Jimmy’s brother Chuck and his girlfriend/lawyer Kim, have officially joined Better Call Saul for season 3. In Breaking Bad, Chuck is jealous of Jimmy’s success as an attorney (with more clients) but he also despises Jimmy for being a slippery, slimy criminal. Ultimately, he tries to keep them apart with divorce papers in hand. Kim on the other hand sees right through his ruse and decides that if she can’t beat him at his own game she might as well join him.
Steven Levine and Daniel Spenser Levine Portrayed Lars and Cal Lindholm
Steven and Daniel are brothers-in-law who work together at Chuck’s law firm, Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill. Steven is an ambitious guy who has dreams of being a partner at HHM while Daniel is more easygoing, much more satisfied with his position as an attorney. In Season 1, Episode 7 (Bingo), it was revealed that Lars is actually Cal Lindholm, Chuck’s biological father and Jimmy McGill’s biological uncle. The real Lars Lindholm died in 1995 when he was accidentally killed by Werner Ziegler during a battle with The Devil. It wasn’t until 1999 when a woman claiming to be Lars’ sister showed up at HHM and she claimed that Lars wasn’t really dead.
Míriam Colón Portrayed Abuelita Salamanca
Season 3 (8 episodes) – Season 4 (10 episodes) It’s no secret that Better Call Saul has taken a lot of inspiration from Breaking Bad. But if you don’t know your Spanish slang, you may not have picked up on just how much. Everything from names (Tuco), character traits (Smokey), and devices have been stolen from Bryan Cranston’s previous show – but one of its best riffs on a Breaking Bad character is Gus Fring’s grandmother. Played by Míriam Colón, Abuelita Salamanca got more screen time in Season 3 than she did in Breaking Bad, which makes sense because, let’s face it – who doesn’t love an old lady with machine guns?
Barry Shabaka Henley Portrayed Detective Sanders
Detective Bill Nunes Sanders is a New Mexico state police officer and a key member of Hank Schrader’s (Dean Norris) team on AMC’s Better Call Saul. This wasn’t his first gig, either—he appeared in Breaking Bad as C.I. agent #2, and he played Sgt. Nunez in an episode of The X-Files that also featured Gillian Anderson. He was originally born in England and later attended Howard University where he received a Bachelors degree in English literature before landing roles on TV shows like New York Undercover, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Person of Interest and Pretty Little Liars. And now he can add Better Call Saul to his list of accomplishments!
Mel Rodriguez Portrayed Marco Pasternak
Rodriguez is best known for his roles on The Last Man on Earth, as well as Curb Your Enthusiasm. He also had a memorable role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2014 hit, Inherent Vice. For Better Call Saul, Rodriguez plays Marco Pasternak, Kim’s closest friend at Mesa Verde who can be seen around Breaking Bad. Now that Kim and Jimmy are back together again (for now), we’ll probably see more of him during season three.
Clea DuVall Portrayed Dr. Cruz
DuVall’s been working steadily since she was a child actor in North (1994), playing Kirsten Dunst’s younger sister. As an adult, DuVall has shifted from smaller indies (like The Glass House) to bigger blockbusters (Watchmen, Argo) and then on to television—she played Talia al Ghul on Arrow. This year, she stars in Sundance TV’s Dig as well as Better Call Saul. She’ll also be seen next year as Mia in Ben Affleck’s Live by Night adaptation. DuVall is active with two charities; she is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF USA and also works with Global Citizens UK.
Jean Effron Portrayed Irene Landry
Jean Effron, who plays forensic technician Irene Landry on Better Call Saul, is known for roles in Hulu’s Shut Eye and television series Looking. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Effron studied acting at Point Park University in Pittsburgh. Her first role was in a short film called Toe Up (2011), after which she went on to appear in Short Term 12 (2013) and NCIS: Los Angeles (2014). While her acting resume may not yet be extensive, Effron has been acting since she was 10 years old and has earned some notice with her appearances as Irene Landry.
Steven Ogg Portrayed Sobchak
A criminal attorney who represents Gus. He is not a man to be trifled with, and it is known that he has been on both sides of prison bars. In his youth, he worked for Tonin as a member of Gus’ drug-running crew. When Ogg auditioned for Better Call Saul, he came in with a shaved head and did an outstanding job using body language alone to convey his character’s anger and menace. Ogg truly feels like an ace actor, according to series creator Vince Gilligan.
Season 2 Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Ed Begley Jr. Portrayed Clifford Main
I had no idea that Ed Begley Jr. is so funny. I don’t know what shows he did between Boston Legal and Better Call Saul, but he seems way funnier here than on Boston Legal or any other show I’ve seen him in. He plays a really interesting character in season 2, and it was fun learning about his backstory and how things tied together with some of our other characters. It was also great seeing how Jimmy and Main were tied together because we only saw Jimmy, Mike, Chuck and Kim interact in season 1.
Omar Maskati Portrayed Omar
In Breaking Bad, Omar played himself – and we mean that literally. He was a very real person who was a working actor and part-time student, when his appearance in Breaking Bad happened entirely by chance. He ran into producers outside of an LA comedy club and ended up bringing them on set with him where they cast him as a Somali pirate – one of his first acting roles ever. So far in Better Call Saul, Omar has appeared in three episodes, playing himself again (at least according to Jimmy). But that’s not all he’s been up to; while most recently seen singing in a bar with Stevie from Stevie & The Exciters, Omar has also been hard at work writing for both TV shows and movies.
Jessie Ennis Portrayed Erin Brill
Erin Brill is introduced in Season 1 of Better Call Saul, a social worker at Mesa Verde Elementary School where Jimmy McGill (aka Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman) was once a teacher. A single mom, Erin is new to Albuquerque and struggling to make ends meet while raising her son, Stevie. She meets Jimmy when he helps Stevie with his homework, but she doesn’t know that Jimmy is actually an attorney with his own law practice. Erin has a second son named Rory who lives with his father in Omaha, Nebraska. In addition to her younger brother Chuck McGill and her ex-husband Howard Hamlin, Erin’s mother makes several appearances on Better Call Saul.
Juan Carlos Cantu Portrayed Manuel Varga
Better Call Saul fans were first introduced to Varga in Season 1, when he was introduced as a representative for Los Pollos Hermanos. When Gus Fring pulled out of plans with Hector Salamanca and his granddaughter, Cassandra, it was Varga who paid a visit at their booth and effectively took over negotiations. Though they later formed an alliance during Gus’s war with Nacho, so much has changed since then that it’s anyone’s guess what kind of presence Manuel will have in Season 4. But one thing is certain—he will forever be known as the man who kept scorecards during games of dominoes.
Vincent Fuentes Portrayed Arturo Colon
Arturo is one of Gus’s henchmen. He has an enormous amount of respect for Gus and his power as a drug kingpin. Arturo can easily blend into whatever environment he’s in and can be just as courteous or aggressive as needed. In season two, Arturo begins working alongside Mike Ehrmantraut with a specific job in mind, handling all dirty work necessary when needed. We don’t yet know what his endgame is but it’s very likely he will follow through with whatever plan gets him closer to achieving it…no matter who gets hurt along the way.
Rex Linn Portrayed Kevin Wachtell
Season 1-3. With some of the most intriguing character traits on Better Call Saul, Kevin Wachtell is one of those talents that you can’t help but want more of. His first appearance was in season 1 episode 3 Nacho as an employee at Mesa Verde Bank and Trust who gets duped by Nacho Varga into handing over $10,000. He then shows up again in season 2 episode 7 Inflatable as a member of Lalo Salamanca’s drug cartel posing as a fellow member of his community. In season 3 he appears in episodes 5 Something Beautiful and 6 Off Brand where he plays a lawyer for Gus Fring and Mike Ehrmantraut respectively. Rex has been acting since 1999 with notable roles on TV shows like Chicago PD (Detective Schenk), The Mob Doctor (Dr.
Cara Pifko Portrayed Paige Novick
This is Cara Pifko’s first TV role. She has only been in a couple of short films prior. She studied theater at Ohio State University and will be graduating in May 2016. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, painting, and spending time with her dog Bentley. If Better Call Saul gets picked up for Season 4, it is unknown whether or not Cara will continue with the show as Paige Novick or if she will be recast.
Ann Cusack Portrayed Rebecca Bois
Rebecca Bois is Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) elder sister. She visits him at his office and informs him that their late father’s estate has been left to her and not Jimmy, because she believes Jimmy is responsible for their father’s death. In a flashback, Rebecca admits she has always been jealous of Jimmy ever since he got accepted into a better law school than hers, which ended up causing her husband and children to move away from their hometown of Cicero. Rebecca enjoys playing golf with Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito).
Julie Pearl Portrayed Assistant District Attorney
Assistant District Attorney Julianne Pearl (Julie) is first seen in Season 1 Episode 2. Originally from New York, she transferred her practice to Albuquerque for a better quality of life. After she was assigned to Chuck’s case, she realized he had connections with Mike Ehrmantraut, who approached him about a hit on Tuco Salamanca and his Uncle Hector. She then went on to represent Nacho as he killed Tuco Salamanca outside his restaurant Casa Tranquila in retaliation for them stealing all of his money.
Manuel Uriza Portrayed Ximenez Lecerda
Ximenez is a low-level assistant at Madrigal Electromotive. He tries to get a job as an assistant for Nacho, but his looks are not appreciated. Ximenez attempts to set up Lalo and Nacho’s father Ignacio with Dayana, but gets robbed by Salamanca gang members in a prank. Ximenez kills one of them and subsequently hides from Salamanca thugs in Chuck’s house, where he accidentally eats some of Chuck’s poisoned food.
Hayley Holmes Portrayed Make-Up Girl
Hayley Holmes is best known for her role as Lila in Starz’s Blunt Talk and has had guest spots on hit shows like Castle, Mad Men, and Arrow. She’s also appeared in movies like The Big Short, This Is Where I Leave You, and Clint Eastwood’s Sully. So far on Better Call Saul she played a make-up artist on Jimmy McGill’s fake commercial shoot for Sandpiper Crossing Apartments. It looks like she has some more work coming up soon as well!
Season 3 Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Bonnie Bartlett Portrayed Helen
Helen is Jimmy McGill’s late mother, and her death set him on his current path. An introvert who grew up with Jimmy and his brother Chuck, Helen never really recovered from losing her husband and then being diagnosed with cancer. A loving woman who wants nothing more than for her sons to follow in their father’s law-abiding footsteps, she gets one son into law school but pays a heavy price for it. This character will be a series regular in Season 3.
Kimberly Hebert Gregory Portrayed Assistant District Attorney Kyra Hay
Hay is a tough-as-nails lawyer who looks like she could’ve been an NFL linebacker in her past life. She has no patience for criminals, big or small, and takes a personal interest in everyone involved with Wittenberg’s criminal case. However, she has no love for Chuck—or Jimmy. We do know that when she was younger, Hay attended law school at night after working all day as a CPA. Since then, she’s seen (and tried) it all and is great at what she does… but don’t call her Kimberly Hebert Gregory during your next conversation with her or you will be ignored and mocked until you apologize properly. Yikes!
Tamara Tunie Portrayed Anita
Tamara Tunie is well known for her role as Dr. Naomi Bennett on Law & Order, a character that lasted for 12 seasons on NBC. She appeared in 145 episodes of Law & Order as a series regular and 5 episodes of SVU as a recurring cast member. Anita, her character in Better Call Saul, doesn’t have much information released about her other than she was Jimmy’s love interest. We can predict that she might be one of Jimmy’s first clients because Jimmy seems like he has always wanted to help people and perhaps she needed legal help or something along those lines.
Season 4 Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Rainer Bock Portrayed Werner Ziegler
A German national, Ziegler is introduced in Quite a Ride. He runs an upscale art gallery in Berlin. In 2009, he purchased a collection of paintings from Kettleman that included Jimmy’s favorite piece from his stolen collection. In Something Beautiful, he travels to Albuquerque for an exclusive viewing of Kettleman’s newly discovered masterpiece before it was auctioned off at a local gallery. Ziegler advises both Werner and Spohia not to reveal their involvement with Walter White, Jesse Pinkman or Declan. In addition, if anyone asks them about their dealings with White and Pinkman they should say they don’t know them and even feign ignorance of who they are.
Ben Bela Bohm Portrayed Kai
Jimmy’s brother. A brilliant chemist, he is currently working at Stacey and Fuchs Pharmaceuticals under Howard. He is trying to rekindle his relationship with Jimmy after three years of no contact. His first appearance was in Marco. Ben Bohm has been cast for a recurring role in AMC’s Better Call Saul. In February 2015, he was promoted from guest star to series regular for season two.
Stefan Kapicic Portrayed Casper
The Serbian-born actor is best known for his role as Nikolai on HBO’s The Wire. His other television credits include a recent stint on NCIS, as well as roles in NCIS: Los Angeles and Suits. He also appeared in several episodes of Alias in 2003. Kapičić’s film work includes Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Repo Men and Salt.
Poorna Jagannathan Portrayed Maureen Bruckner
Maureen Bruckner, also known as Mommy Madrigal, was Jimmy McGill’s nemesis during Season 1 of Better Call Saul. The pair met when Jimmy tried to scam her and partner, Nacho, in a real estate deal. When Maureen asked Jimmy to do one last job with her — which would be more of a suicide mission than anything else — he declined and assured that his brother would love nothing more than to take her down. She was portrayed by Poorna Jagannathan.
Keiko Agena Portrayed Viola Goto
In season 1, Viola is Mike’s (Jonathan Banks) right-hand woman, having been with him since before he opened his private investigation firm. Her character brings in new clients, conducts research and is occasionally involved in surveillance work. Agena has previously appeared on shows such as Private Practice, Glee and Hawaii Five-0. She’s best known for her role as Lane Kim on Gilmore Girls, which ran from 2000 until 2007.
Season 5 Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Sasha Feldman and Morgan Krantz Portrayed Sticky and Ron
2 episodes, Something Beautiful and Quite a Ride. It is revealed in these episodes that despite their role as Gus’s henchmen, they are actually ambitious career criminals looking to make their own way in the underworld. As they are also very young, they decide to attend college and get an education so that they can hold legitimate jobs while still remaining loyal minions. The two make their appearance at HHM during Chuck’s presentation for prospective clients but leave when Chuck goes on his mid-lecture break. They take advantage of being left alone in Chuck’s office by rifling through his desk drawers, only for Kim to interrupt them before anything can be stolen. Sticky and Ron flee HHM headquarters after Kim realizes who they are and tells Jimmy about them.
Barry Corbin Portrayed Everett Acker
Corbin is a character actor with a face that looks like he’s been around forever. It probably helps when you have a long list of TV credits and you’ve done everything from Naked Gun 33 1/3 (1988) to Not Another Teen Movie (2001). In other words, Corbin has proven his versatility. He played recurring roles on Justified and 24 as well as shows like NCIS, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Without a Trace, Commander in Chief, JAG and One Tree Hill. Corbin got his start on Broadway before moving into TV in 1986. For Better Call Saul, Corbin plays Everett Acker — who is likely more alive than people think — in season two.
Get to Know the Recurring Cast of Season 6 Better Call Saul
A recurring cast member has been on the show since Season 5 of Better Call Saul, but you may not recognize their face. Ray Campbell played Tyrus Kitt, Javier Grajeda played Juan Bolsa, and Jeremiah Bitsui played Victor, all of whom we met in the first half of season 5. In this blog post we’ll learn more about each of these actors and their roles on Better Call Saul as well as what else they have done in the past and what else they are doing now in between seasons 5 and 6 (which premieres August 6, 2018).
1) Ray Campbell as Tyrus Kitt
Ray Campbell is an American actor, comedian, and writer. He is best known for his portrayal of Tyrus Kitt in AMC’s Better Call Saul, a spin-off prequel series to Breaking Bad.
Tyrus is a former professional athlete who owns a car wash and body shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was born in Detroit but moved out west with his family when he was 17 years old. His father died when he was ten years old which left him caring for his mother and siblings on his own. He has been married four times and has five children with four different women, as well as one grandchild by way of one of them.
2) Javier Grajeda as Juan Bolsa
Juan Bolsa is a high-ranking member of a Mexican drug cartel, who is first introduced in Season 3 and becomes increasingly involved with Gus Fring’s operation. Javier Grajeda portrays Juan Bolsa on Better Call Saul. In the series, he is depicted as being street smart, calculating, and someone who likes to intimidate his enemies by shooting them in their feet. He also has an intense dislike for Hector Salamanca that stems from a past incident at Tuco’s restaurant. In season five, Bolsa leaves Los Pollos Hermanos and disappears from sight after Gus Fring’s death.
3) Jeremiah Bitsui as Victor
Erin Brill is a high-profile, famous attorney in Albuquerque. She’s a good friend and confidant of Jimmy McGill (Saul Goodman), and she gives him legal advice when he needs it. The two have a complicated relationship, at times competing for clients and at times helping each other out behind the scenes.
Erin’s first appearance on the show came on season 3 episode 10 Off Brand. In this episode she represented one of Jimmy’s clients who was suing Chuck McGill (Jimmy’s brother) over an allergy medication that didn’t work properly.
In season 4 episode 9 Something Beautiful, Erin visited Jimmy in jail after Chuck framed him for tampering with evidence.
4) Jessie Ennis as Erin Brill
Erin Brill is a recurring character in Better Call Saul, portrayed by Jessie Ennis. She first appears in the episode Alpine Shepherd Boy as an assistant district attorney who interviews Jimmy McGill for his letter of recommendation, and later in Something Beautiful when she prosecutes Jimmy. The next season, she is seen working with Howard Hamlin and Chuck McGill on a possible settlement agreement between their two firms, but the negotiations break down after Chuck’s confession tape is leaked. When Howard asks Chuck to give him something that could help his case against Jimmy, he warns her that even if she can’t get him reinstated with Hamlin and McGill, he will work for them again or start his own practice with Kim Wexler.
Q & A
Is Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul in the same universe?
No, Better Call Saul takes place before Breaking Bad, although some people argue that there are Breaking Bad Easter eggs in every episode. But series creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould wanted to continue telling Walter White’s story, albeit from a different angle. Peter and I have known each other for years, said Gilligan. I even contributed an episode of his show Sports Night called ‘Tomorrow.’ From day one of conceiving it (Breaking Bad), we talked about doing a prequel show.
Is Badger in Better Call Saul? Better Call Saul: Get to Know the Recurring Cast
Badger (Matt Jones) appeared in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. He is a good friend of Walt and Jesse’s who owns a junkyard. In Better Call Saul, Badger makes contact with Gus, who he refers to as El Senor, about selling stolen catalytic converters from his junkyard; however, Gus ultimately rejects his offer because he believes he will be unable to trust Badger in business matters. Following their refusal, Gus tells Mike that he wants him to start watching over Badger for any suspicious activity in order to prove himself trustworthy.
What happens if you call Saul Goodman’s number?
If you are a fan of Breaking Bad then it’s safe to say that you have already fallen in love with Saul Goodman and his unorthodox approach to life. Played by Bob Odenkirk, Goodman is your run-of-the-mill criminal lawyer who just happens to be shady and work for drug dealers. His antics are what led Walter White and Jesse Pinkman down their dark path on Breaking Bad, but we never get a full sense of what life is like for him outside of his dealings with Walt and Jesse. That is, until Better Call Saul made its debut on AMC last year.
Is Rhea Seehorn in season 6 of Better Call Saul?
Yes. Rhea Seehorn joins Better Call Saul in season 6 as Betsy Kettleman, Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) next-door neighbor and love interest. The pair begin a romantic relationship during season 6 that mirrors a real-life courtship between Seehorn and Odenkirk, who was once married to Kim Dickens. Both actors have starred on AMC dramas in recent years—Seehorn appeared in Breaking Bad as Lindsay, Mike Ehrmantraut’s girlfriend, while Odenkirk recurred on The Killing as cranky state trooper Carl Schmidt before joining Breaking Bad for season 5 as Saul Goodman. Keep reading for more information about Betsy and how she factors into Better Call Saul!
Does Walter White appear in Better Call Saul?
No, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has said it would be impossible for Walter White (Bryan Cranston) to appear in Better Call Saul. Instead, we will get a glimpse of White as he appeared before his transformation into Heisenberg. During that time, he was working as a high school chemistry teacher. Bob Odenkirk’s character will also serve as an origin story for small-time attorney Jimmy McGill who eventually became one of Albuquerque’s most notorious criminals… and we mean criminals (not lawyers). McGill slowly morphs from scam artist into a straight-laced lawyer, attempting to do right by his brother Chuck (Michael McKean), while desperately trying to keep his drug-dealing past hidden from others.
Should I watch El Camino after Better Call Saul?
Better Call Saul was created by Vince Gilligan, who also created Breaking Bad. El Camino isn’t officially a spinoff of Better Call Saul, but you can still enjoy both shows without feeling like you’re missing out on something. Just keep in mind that most critics recommend watching Better Call Saul before El Camino. While they may be set in different time periods, they take place within the same universe and reference each other several times throughout each season. Also, some characters from Better Call Saul appear in El Camino—albeit with new names and appearances—so it’s fun to compare notes if you’ve watched both shows.
