Better Call Saul Most Hilarious Character Who Almost Turned The Show Into a Comedy
The prequel and Walter White series have given viewers a number of memorable individuals.
But there is one amazing character that brings a smile to the face of almost every fan of this universe.
The Heisenberg storyline featured the annoying Ted Beneke, who eventually became a fandom meme.
The Jimmy McGill show provided more than a few episodes of goofy Pryce making the dumbest decision and buying a yellow Hummer with his first illegal money. But the fans are totally in love with Everett Acker.
Everett Acker, portrayed by actor Barry Corbin, is a stubborn and cantankerous old man who refuses to leave his house despite the increasing efforts of real estate developers.
Thwarting the plans of these developers, especially Mesa Verde, a large banking corporation that Kim Wexler works for, seems to be his only mission in life.
What makes Acker so hilarious is his relentless determination and his ability to outwit those who underestimate him.
One of the funniest moments involving Acker is when he uses his unique brand of passive resistance against the construction workers sent to demolish his house.
Instead of just moving out, Everett decides to make their lives as difficult as possible. In the end, Kim decides to use Jimmy's hands to protect the stalwart old man who wants to keep his property.
The interaction between Saul and Mr. Acker in season 5 was an incredibly amusing storyline that lightened up the rather heavy tone and atmosphere of one of the last parts of the series.
In the end, the wily Jimmy not only manages to hire a private investigator and dig up dirt on the Mesa Verde bank, but also gets a huge check from the sale of the house to Everett.
Many fans note that Acker's character was the funniest in the entire series.
Although some also remember Bill Oakley, a defense attorney from Albuquerque, New Mexico, who was at odds with Jimmy on every single case at the beginning of the series.
The hilarious dialogue between the two and the contrived confrontations always made the audience laugh.
