The Friday Night Lights actor will play a major recurring role as a dependable, working-class man who may not be what he appears, reports TV Line.
Breaking Bad will return for its concluding season in July on AMC, which will be broken into two parts each consisting of eight episodes.
The show's lead actor Bryan Cranston revealed that the upcoming season will pick up where season four left off.
"We're cleaning up the pieces from last season's huge ordeal where Gus Fring was forced to meet his maker," Cranston explained. "It's not as easy as Walter thought.
"And as we've discovered over the years, you don't really know who Walter White is. I'm still discovering who he is and I'm trying to allow myself to be open to him going darker and darker."
