Neal: I will take anything, and I mean anything, on the new season of Breaking Bad.
You're in luck, because we have something a little better than just anything. Breaking Bad is looking for a new series regular to join the show! Described as "brittle, smart, yet going through a challenging time." Isn't everyone going through a challenging time on Breaking Bad? The kicker for this role is this new character is supposed to be an "Amy Ryan/Jodie Foster" type. Awesome.
Wow, the first new series regular since season 2! Any guesses on who the new character might be? I'm thinking either Madrigal Electromotive executive, or a DEA agent.
ETA: More info from TV Line - the character has a name (Lydia) and is also described as a business woman and mother.
Question: Do we have to wait until July 2012 for Breaking Bad‘s fifth season? —Hannah
Ausiello: You sure do, but here’s something to tide you over: The show is introducing a major new character named Lydia. She’s described as a brittle, smart businesswoman and mother who is going through a challenging time. Producers are looking for an “Amy Ryan/Jodie Foster” type for the series regular role. Ooooh, I know the perfect actress for the part: Amy Ryan! Genius idea, right?
