NBC Cooks Up Another ‘Breaking Bad’ Star For ‘Whitney’

Whitney Season 2 Dean Norris
NBC / AMC

Hank Schrader might be taking the bathroom break of the millennium all the way to next summer’s ‘Breaking Bad‘ premiere, but Dean Norris isn’t about to stay on the pot. Following up on NBC’s acquisition of ‘Breaking Bad’ baddie Giancarlo Esposito for the post-apocalyptic thriller ‘Revolution,’ and even Jonathan Banks’ upcoming turn on ‘Parks and Recreation‘ season 5, the peacock has picked up Dean Norris as well to guest on the coming season of ‘Whitney.’ But will Norris play the drug hound we’re all used to, or someone a little less intimidating?

Entertainment Weekly reports that ‘Breaking Bad’ star Dean Norris is taking a little detour on his way to arrest Walter White by guest starring in the second season of NBC’s three-camera comedy ‘Whitney.’ Though few details are available on the role, the magazine reveals that Norris will portray the father of Whitney’s boyfriend Alex (Chris D’Elia), in at least one episode.

Along with ‘Community,’ ‘Whitney’ will make the leap to Friday nights this year, premiering its second season on October 19. NBC has been on something of a ‘Breaking Bad’ spree, casting two actors made famous for their roles on the AMC series, casting Giancarlo Esposito (Gus) in ‘Revolution’ and bringing Johnathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) to ‘Parks and Recreation’ for at least an episode.

Well, what say you? Is the presence of Dean Norris enough to get you interested in the second season of ‘Whitney’? What other ‘Breaking Bad’ stars do you think NBC should go after next?
