Bob Odenkirk Got Drunk for the First Time in 30 Years

Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk got drunk back in 2016 for an episode of Derek Waters’ Drunk History. It turns out it was the first time he had been inebriated in 30 years! “It was scary for me to get drunk,” Odenkirk said during a Monday panel at PaleyFest NY. “Derek knows. We had a lot of conversations about it. I almost backed out because I haven’t been drunk in a long, long time.” Why was it scary for Odenkirk to get hammered? “I have kids who are teenagers, both in college now, and I was a little worried about them seeing me on TV really drunk — like — vomiting drunk.”
