New Bob Odenkirk online series launches on Adult Swim

Bob Odenkirk, the “Mr. Show” co-creator most recently known for his role as Saul on “Breaking Bad,” is the centerpiece of a new Web short that premiered on AdultSwim.com today, “Let’s Do This.”

Odenkirk plays Cal Mackenzie-Goldberg, a has-been/never-was movie mogul trying to rebuild his pseudo-empire.

“In ‘Mr. Show,’ ‘Larry Sanders’ and other cult hit shows I’ve played many a funny sleazeball, I’ve impersonated the great Robert Evans, and it’s all been building to this,” Odenkirk said. “Cal MacKenzie-Goldberg and his come-from-behind underdog gang of sweet losers somehow find a way to succeed, even if they end up getting paid in yams.”

One possible film idea mentioned in the episode: “‘Ex-Terminator’ – it’s about a terminator, he retires about his job as a terminator and then becomes an exterminator.”

Odenkirk, Jim Freeman and Brian Jarvis created “Let’s Do This,” which co-stars Lauren Lapkus, Jerry Minor and Brian Posehn, with guests including Natasha Legerro, Paul Rust, John Ennis, Jill Bartlett, Jim Freeman, Brian Jarvis, Andre Hyland, Bruce Green, and Fortune Feimster.
