Universal’s new high-octane thrill-ride Nobody brings together some of the most formidable names working in action cinema today: John Wick writer Derek Kolstad, Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller, Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch (who is a producer), and, of course… Bob Odenkirk!? That casting is kinda the punchline of this movie about a seemingly regular Joe named Hutch Mansell, a suburban family man suffering from some serious middle-age malaise, whose former life as a take-no-prisoners badass is re-awakened after a home invasion.
In this exclusive and extended sit down, Odenkirk – up till now best known as a deft comedian and for his work in Breaking Bad and prequel series Better Call Saul – reveals how his own personal experience with home invasions inspired the idea for the film and the character of Hutch. Plus, the actor goes deep on the movie’s demanding action sequences, including an absolutely brutal encounter on a bus, and channeling the rage of a man whose safety, and that of his family, has been violated.
Nobody is in theaters March 26, 2021.
