Jesse Plemons Cast on Breaking Bad Season 5

Two of the best shows in the history of the universe are about to collide. As first reported by Michael Ausiello, Jesse Plemons (Landry on Friday Night Lights ) has landed a recurring role on season five of Breaking Bad . The beloved actor will portray Todd, described as a "working-class guy" who somehow gets involved - we presume - in Walt and Jesse's plotting, scheming and drug-running.

'Breaking Bad': Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul give a very small glimpse of Season 5

AMC has cracked open the door on "Breaking Bad's" forthcoming season just a tiny bit, offering up an on-the-set video with stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul.The two Emmy winners come to us from a street in Albuquerque, while the crew sets up a shot ... and that's about it. Paul does say that Season 5 is "hands down the craziest one as of yet," but he doesn't divulge anything about what's about to film behind him.Cranston outright teases us: "If we panned over, which we're not," he says, "you'd see something that's revealing a plot point.

'Breaking Bad': Watch a Season 5 trailer ... just not the real one

We have yet to get any real indication about where Season 5 of "Breaking Bad" will take us.We're pretty sure, though, that it won't involve the ghost of Gus Fring making supernatural meth that turns people into zombies, killing Walter White with a falling Los Pollos Hermanos ATM and Jesse and Walt Jr. seeking heavily armed revenge while Peter Schilling's "Major Tom (Coming Home)" plays on the soundtrack.All that happens, though, in a bonkers animated trailer from Next Media Animation, the Taiwanese web outfit known mostly for re-imagining celebrity slip-ups. At least we think that's what happens after Mike -- we think that's Mike, anyway -- slits the throat of a guy in a chicken suit (reminiscent of Gus in "Box Cutter" last season) to resurrect Gus from the dead (with face intact, incidentally). We've come to expect just about anything from Vince Gilligan and the "Breaking Bad" writers, but we think the people at... //
