Ride or Die Star Rhea Seehorn Talks Vince Gilligan’s New Show

Kim Wexler continues to pay dividends to Rhea Seehorn. When Bad Boys: Ride or Die Directors Adil and Bilall endured an “emotional roller coaster” in 2022, finding escape through their binge-watching of Seehorn’s acclaimed series, You better call Saul. The two Belgian directors were so taken by his portrayal of Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) romantic partner that they said they would find a role for him to play one day. Well, a day soon came, for then they had a general meeting with her concerning Bad Boys: Ride or Die and the role of US Marshal Judy Howard, the daughter of Joe Pantoliano’s beloved Bad Boys character, Captain Conrad Howard.

“Believe me, there was a part of me that was like, ‘Do they know me in any way?’ » But I pretty much assume that of anyone; it wasn’t really specific to them.
