Thanks to the likes of Jimmy Fallon and James Corden, late-night television is currently in the midst of a bull market for wacky games and bits with celebrities. But on Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Emmy-nominated actor Bob Odenkirk took a stand against the popular gimmicks.

“I told my publicist I didn’t want to play a game,” the Better Call Saul star told Kimmel.

But Kimmel insisted he and Odenkirk play Heatherball, “a fun game” that was like tetherball, “but Heather Graham’s face is on the ball.”

“I’ll walk over there, but I won’t play,” Odenkirk told Kimmel. He then proceeded to call (“call”) his publicist to figure out why there was a disconnect. He didn’t play but the game went on without him. Kimmel won. Watch the segment below.
