Breaking Bad Exclusive: Friday Night Lights' Jesse Plemons Joins Season 5 Cast as [Spoiler]

Jesse Plemons Breaking BadLandry has scored again! Much-missed Friday Night Lights MVP Jesse Plemons has landed a major recurring role on the upcoming fifth season of Breaking Bad, TVLine has learned exclusively.

He’ll play Todd, a dependable, innocuous, working-class guy in the show’s fifth and final season (which is slated to kick off in July and will be broken up into two eight-episode chunks). However, his character may not be what he appears to be.

Since putting down the pigskin, Plemons has been rushing non-stop, on the big screen (Battleship) and small (NBC’s Bent). Besides bagging Bad, he’s also landed a part in the upcoming film The Master, alongside all-stars such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams.
