Currently, Banks is appearing on NBC’s “Community” as Professor Buzz Hickey. He will join Bob Odenkirk as the titular role of Saul Goodman.
“Better Call Saul” is the prequel series which traces the origins of ambulance chasing lawyer by day, all around criminal fixer by night, weekends, and much of his day. According to Deadline, Banks will be a series regular on the show, which means that he will be a part of Goodman’s journey to become the man who would be Walter White’s lawyer.
Conceived of by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and writer-producer Peter Gould, Better Call Saul is set to premiere on AMC in November.
