Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn & Michael Mando Join Cast of AMC's BETTER CALL SAUL
According to Deadline, Patrick Fabian, Rhea Seehorn and Michael Mando have signed on to join Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, and Michael McKean in AMC's highly anticipated sequel to BREAKING BAD, to be titled BETTER CALL SAUL. They'll play one of the series all-new characters.
Fabian will play Burt, a "Kennedy" type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Seehorn will play Beth, a lawyer, while Mando will take on the role of Eddie, a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish.
The new AMC series will feature returning stars Odenkirk and Banks, reprising their roles as Saul and Mike, two of the very few characters who survived the final episodes of BREAKING BAD.
No details have been revealed as to whether Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul or other characters from the original series will make appearances on the new drama.
Starring Odenkirk and co-created and executive produced by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, "Better Call Saul" tells the story of mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman in the years before he became Walter White's attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.
"Breaking Bad," which concluded on AMC in late September, has for five seasons followed Walter White, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with terminal cancer, who turns to making methamphetamines to support his family, ending up a ruthless drug lord. The series has won ten Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2013 and is regarded by critics as one of the best ever dramatic television series. "Breaking Bad" is already available in all Netflix territories.
