Breaking Bad's Dean Norris Finds a Home Under the Dome

February 14, 2013


"Breaking Bad" star Dean Norris has taken a leading role in the upcoming Stephen King television adaptation, "Under the Dome," says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

The series, set to debut on June 24 at 10/9c on CBS, has been adapted for the small screen by Brian K. Vaughan ("Y: The Last Man," "Ex Machina," "LOST"). Neils Arden Oplev, the director of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will helm the pilot.

The story tells of a small town in Maine which is cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible dome. With air, food and patience dwindling, societal norms within this town begin to break down.

Norris, who recently appeared on the big screen in Get the Gringo, will play James "Big Jim" Rennie, a town councilman who also -- in the reverse of his "Breaking Bad" character -- runs a secret meth lab. The 13-episode first season will also star Colin Ford, Aisha Hinds, Alex Koch, Natalie Martinez, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robertson, Mike Vogel and Nicholas Strong.
