The ‘Breaking Bad’ Spin-off added Michael McKean in a co-starring role on the upcoming drama series, “Better Call Saul”. The veteran actor is set to play “a gifted lawyer named Dr. Thurber who is hampered by a strange affliction”. While no confirmation is available for the rumored return of Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, fans can expect Saul Goodman’s trusted private investigator Michael “Mike” Ehrmantraut to reprise his role. The character portrayed by Jonathan Banks will join Bob Odenkirk who will reprises his role as Saul Goodman. Dean Norris, who played Walt’s DEA Agent brother-in-law Hank, said it’s unlikely for him to join the cast of the “Breaking Bad” spin-off due to his commitments on CBS’ “Under the Dome”.
The show is set as a “prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.” “Breaking Bad” writer Peter Gould, will executive produce the new show, while Gilligan plans to direct the pilot.
