Breaking Bad icon set for Stephen King miniseries

February 17th, 2013 by bash Comments


Dean Norris, the man behind meth kingpin Heisenberg’s principal police nemesis Hank Schrader on AMC’s Breaking Bad, is set to star in the CBS-Stephen King miniseries Under The Dome.

Norris will play Big Jim Rennie, a character who balances his roles as car dealer and town selectman with his secret role as the brains and money behind his small town’s illegal drug operation.

The announcement comes after Mike Vogel (Cloverfield) was just cast as Rennie’s chief in-dome adversary Dale “Barbie” Barbara.

Niels Arden Oplev (who directed the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) helms at least some of the 13-part CBS miniseries from teleplays by Brian K. Vaughn (Lost).

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
