‘Nobody’ Big Game Spot Gives Bob Odenkirk His ‘John Wick’ Moment

Bob Odenkirk. John Wick creator/writer Derek Kolstad. Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller. One of these things is not like the other. And that’s what makes Nobody, the upcoming action flick led by the Better Caul Saul star so damn exciting, because who doesn’t want to watch Odenkirk kill people ala Keanu Reeves?

Nobody, which opens fairly soon on April 2nd, gives Odenkirk his chance to kill people and make that lasagna you love so much. He plays Hutch Mansell, a seemingly-ordinary family man with a dark past involving some bad people, and Heaven forbid you mess with his daughter’s kitty cat bracelet!

This looks crazy and like everything we should want from an action movie with the guy from Mr. Show in it. Also in the cast are RZA, Connie Nielsen, Gage Munroe, Aleksei Serebryakov, Christopher Lloyd.

Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) stars as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody. When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman), seems to pull only further away. The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family from a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Alexey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
