Bob is well known for playing con-man lawyer Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul.

The role follows on from him transforming from earnest legal professional Jimmy McGill in Breaking Bad.

Better Call Saul follows Bob’s character as he tackles cases as a powerful and greedy criminal defence lawyer.

He has yielded him four Golden Globe nominations for best actor in a television series drama, and four Emmy nominations for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his part in the show.

Bob recently starred in Nobody.

In the film, he plays a seemingly bland family man and office worker, Hutch Mansell.

However, it’s clear that the movie is not that simple as when Hutch chooses not to aid his teenage son in fighting back when his family home is invaded by burglars.

Hutch then fears his family thinks he’s a failure and after his daughter’s bracelet appears to have also been stolen, Hutch tracks down the burglars but decides not to act when faced with their desperation.

Then on the way home, he stands up for a woman being hassled by a gang of criminals on a bus and engages in a violent brawl with the group – displaying a hidden set of combative skills.

The issue is that one of his opponents in the brawl is related to a major Russian mobster who soon comes after Hutch and all he cares about for vengeance.
