The cancellation of Bent stings a little less today for Jesse Plemons, as Friday Night Lights' mumbling, mediocre-music-playing soul has just landed a major recurring role in the fifth season of Breaking Bad. According to the exclusive report from TV Line, Plemons will play a guy named Todd—" a dependable, innocuous, working-class guy" who turns out to be something different than what he appears to be, with his big head and his dumb baby. Anyway, hiding a secret dark side should be no trouble for Plemons: Lest we forget, he spent most of Friday Night Lights making everyone, including the audience, forget that he was a murderer. Remember that, when he actually murdered some guy and then just sort of stopped talking about it? Neither do we. Let's keep it that way.
