Back to Drama for Former 'Breaking Bad' Star -- Assuming Her Current Comedy Series Doesn't Get a Needed Miracle Deadline

A former star of "Breaking Bad" is poised to return to a major drama series role after a foray into network comedy. Deadline.com reports that Betsy Brandt, who has been co-starring in NBC’s struggling “The Michael J. Fox Show,” is signed to play one of the lead roles in ABC’s 13-episode drama “The Club."

Brandt will play Leslie, the wife of one of the men who owns a private country club. The casting is formally in second position to the low-rated and currently benched “Michael J. Fox Show,” the story notes.

The casting is the second role Brandt has secured in the past few weeks, after she took on a recurring role on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.” Brandt played Marie Schrader, the conflicted wife of DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris) and sister-in-law to meth dealer Walter White (Bryan Cranston), on AMC's "Breaking Bad."
