Welcome!
Great first post. 
I LOVE "Better Call Saul" and Bob Odenkirk and he is amazing in these scenes.

The first scene was episode 3.7, "Expenses".
The second was episode 4.10, "Winner".

Re: Better Call Saul (Male Crying)

When episode 3.7 aired (the breakdown in the office), there was a lot of debate among fans about whether or not  Jimmy's breakdown and tears were sincere or faked.  Him giving that smirk of triumph at the end was enough to convince some that he was faking the whole time.  
I was certain that it started as a completely real breakdown and I loved how realistically it played.  Stressful incidents had been piling up on Jimmy and the news about his insurance premium was the last straw, finally causing him to break.  It's only when he sees the insurance agent take notice of his comment about his sick brother, that a light goes off in his head and he realizes that he has the opportunity to get some payback on Chuck. And you can see it play on Odenkirk's face.  There is a moment when he shifts from being genuinely upset, to starting to milk the situation.  I thought it was a truly excellent performance.  
In any case, I was right.  Both writer Thomas Schnauz and Bob Odenkirk confirmed that that's the way it was conceived and played (sincere then fake).

Good point, i finally found the episode on Popcorn and the crying situation is used with a lot of glibness and subltety from Odenkirk to fit the character he's playing. I also enjoy the fact that some more tears continue to stream at important key points in the scene while he studies the insurance agent body language to see if more ''crying'' is due. You almost cannot tell he's faking it and untill the smirk part.
I also found another similar scene in this one, where he does the fake ''crying'' in order to ellicit pity, not necessarily because he feels sadness for Chuck.

Re: Better Call Saul (Male Crying)

Oh man, the end of the testimony scene is a gut punch.  This time he executes the whole thing brilliantly and we are fooled along with Kim.  Then when he reveals it was all a fake and those that believed him were "suckers"...
