CBS’ “Under the Dome” just made its best casting decision yet, adding Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”, Starship Troopers) to its ranks. Not only is Norris a fun performer, but he’ll be bringing a lot of heat from the series finale of “Breaking Bad”, in which he plays a pivotal role.

Per TV Line, Norris will play Big Jim, the successful owner of Chester’s Mill’s used car dealership and also a town councilman, an office he takes very seriously.

Based on the book by Stephen King, the summer series follows residents in the Chester’s Mill community as they deal with the postapocalyptic conditions that ensue when a strange dome mysteriously encapsulates the town.

Norris joins a cast that also includes Britt Robertson, Aisha Hinds, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Jolene Purdy, Nicholas Strong, Alex Koch and Colin Ford.

“Under the Dome” premieres June 24 on CBS.

    Man, before I was just excited about this. Now, I’m ecstatic! Breaking Bad is, hands down, my favorite show, and Dean is such a good actor. It’ll be cool to see him playing a villian after seeing him as such a good cop on Br Ba. So far, he’s the best part of this show that I’ve heard. I can’t wait to see it.

    Holy Crap on a Cracker, I’m so excited for this now that he’s in it.

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s funny that he’s playing a character connected with a major meth operation?

    • GhettoWerewolf

      Lol I completely forgot about that.

    Perfect choice!

    I hope they fix the lame ending of the novel.
