Parks And Rec Casts Breaking Bad’s Mike

    Most of the principal players of the soon to be finished Breaking Bad are lining up their next projects, and one cast member is headed in an unexpected direction. Jonathan Banks, the series’ beloved “enforcer with a soft spot for secretly soulful young meth barons who are seeking a better father figure than an increasingly slimy former high school teacher” Mike Ehrmantraut, seems to be headed in a particularly interesting direction. The actor will portray the father of Adam Scott’s Ben Wyatt on NBC’s Parks and Rec. So far, he has only been confirmed for episode six of the season, but Banks, as viewers of Breaking Bad already know, has a way of sticking around even in the most unlikely circumstances. [Vulture]
