BREAKING BAD Season 5 hits Friday Night Lights for New Recurring Character
If you so much as mention the words “breaking bad” in that particular order, my body involuntarily convulses in spasms of wildly inappropriate pleasure. So when news reaches my ears of Breaking Bad’s final season, whether it’s a casting announcement or about how the season will be structured, I understandably have a hard time processing the information in a matter that would be considered intelligible. Thankfully, I’ve had about a day to digest the news of Friday Night Light’s Jesse Plemons joining the cast and can properly report it to you with heavily embarrassing myself. That’s always a huge win for me if I can pull that off.
As reported by TVLine, Plemons was tapped to play the major recurring role of Todd, who is described as a dependable, innocuous, working-class guy. But this is Breaking Bad, so chances are there’s more to Todd than what is immediately apparent. This is a show that loves creating deeply layered characters, going well out of its way to humanize even it’s most obvious villains. So while I’m sure Todd will start off exactly as described, just your average hardworking Joe, he will blossom into a truly memorable character. I probably shouldn’t make guarantees like that for the series, but I have the utmost faith in Vince Gilligan and his team of excellent writers.
Breaking Bad is returning to AMC for its fifth and final season sometime this July. You can expect it air its first eight episodes this year before taking a break. It’ll return in the winter to air the finale eight episodes, which should be sufficient amount of time for the hype to build to the point where I won’t be the only person describing bizarre behaviors in response to even smallest ounces of information. We should all start a support group of some kind, talk out our feelings. Maybe Jesse Pinkman can join us and tell us the story of how he killed his “problem dog.”
