"I was very surprised by Nobody. I had initiated that project because I had a feeling that the character I was developing in Better Call Saul was the kind of character you see in an action film. He has earnest desires and he was willing to sacrifice himself," he said.

"I still train multiple times a week, and if I get my way you're going to see me doing more action. I found the action sequences a great deal of fun and close to doing sketch comedy. I love the early Jackie Chan films which had humour in them. I'd like to get that in the future.

"It's almost like people like to see older people lose their shit. Why does that seem to make sense to everyone? It's funny."
