The highly anticipated Breaking Bad spinoff will reunite sleazy attorney Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) with enforcer/investigator Mike Ehrmantrout now that Jonathan Banks has officially joined the cast of Better Call Saul.
As reported by Deadline, Banks has signed on as a full-time series regular on the show, slated to debut in November.
The spinoff, explains Deadline, will “chronicle the evolution of Saul before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer. The deal with Banks means that Saul will have his trusted private investigator/fixer Michael “Mike’ Ehrmantraut by his side.”;
So far, Odenkirk and Banks are the only actors to be cast, although both Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have publicly expressed interest in guest shots to reprise their Breaking Bad characters in the prequel.
Banks is currently appearing in the fifth season of NBC’s Community as Greendale criminology instructor Buzz Hickey, and will soon be seen in the upcoming film sequel Horrible Bosses 2.
