You’ll be pleased to know that your favorite Better Call Saul actors livestreamed from their homes a few days ago, and it was a total joy (as each of them is). Giancarlo Esposito, Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Tony Dalton, Michael Mando, and Patrick Fabian chatted in support of COVID-19 fundraising by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, the screen actors guild’s support wing, to help the wider community with medical bills, rent, and other essentials.
Giancarlo is starting a podcast while growing radish and lettuce. He waters them every day (with razor-sharp precision). Rhea is brushing off her paint brushes after 20 years. Patrick adopted a dog. Michael recorded his first song (“My first love has always been music”). Actors who play criminal moonlighters and crime-adjacent “good people” are people too. Journalist Daniel Fienberg did a nice job moderating the chat. If you missed it, here you go, and more info on COVID-19 relief efforts is here. Jonathan Banks was missed; he was busy practicing his stink eye while debugging gas caps.
