‘Breaking Bad’s ‘Better Call Saul’ Adds ‘The Last Exorcism,’ ‘Orphan Black’ Stars to Cast
A few weeks ago ‘Breaking Bad”s prequel-sequel (maybe) series ‘Better Call Saul‘ added its first original cast member in Christopher Guest alum Michael McKean, and while details remain tight, three new names have been added. ‘The Last Exorcism’ star Patrick Fabian joins the regulars of ‘Better Call Saul,’ along with ‘Franklin & Bash’ alum Rhea Seehorn and ‘Orphan Black”s Michael Mando, but who might they play?
Via Deadline, their exact characters remain unconfirmed, though in all likelihood, will portray the “Kennedy-type” white-shoe law firm lawyer Burt, while Seehorn will take the role of fellow lawyer Beth, and Mando will appear as Spanish-speaking career criminal Eddie. By the original casting descriptions, that leaves 20-something skateboarding twins Zak and Luke.
Apart from confirmed regulars Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks and its November 2014 premiere, much of ‘Better Call Saul’ remains shrouded in mystery, as Odenkirk previously suggested the spinoff could well catch up with Saul post-’Breaking Bad,’ despite its prequel nature. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have also expressed their interest in appearing on the series, though Dean Norris appeared to reject the idea.
Well, what do you think? Does ‘Better Call Saul’ sound any better now that its cast has begun to fill out? What would you want to see from the ‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff when it premieres this November?
