Michael McKean to Crank BETTER CALL SAUL Up To Eleven

In what we’re going to go ahead and call one of the more inspired casting choices of this year, all-around iconic funnyman Michael McKean has been tapped for a role on Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin-off. Yes, that’s right: David St. Hubbins will join Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the dark AMC comedy. Are you feeling all of the funny feels?

According to the folks over at Deadline, McKean will play a new character by the name of Dr. Thurber — someone who we previously noted was “a brilliant attorney in his 50s who is now restricted by an unusual affliction.” Focusing on Goodman (and his increasingly motley-looking crew) from his pre-Walter White days, McKean joins trusted private investigator/fixer Mike Ehrmantraut, a role being reprised by Jonathan Banks, in addition, no doubt, to cast hopefuls like Aaron Paul. Don’t worry, it’s OK to shed a joyful tear. If only we didn’t have to wait for Better Call Saul until November.

Are you excited for Better Call Saul? Let us hear it in the comments.

    Michael McKean walked into my store (locally owned business that sells electronics) and asked for the cheapest set of headphones we carry. Wow Mike. Those Spinal Tap royalty checks stop coming in?

    Any word if this is a starring/regular/guest-starring/recurring role?
