Who you gonna call? Apparently, Michael McKean.

Deadline reports that the veteran actor has signed on to play a co-starring role on the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul."

It's the first big casting news for the series, which will already see Bob Odenkirk back as lawyer Saul Goodman, best described as a little stinker, and Jonathan Banks back as Saul's private investigator Michael Ehrmantraut, best described as Mike.

The "This is Spinal Tap" actor is reportedly set to play Dr. Thurber, an attorney with some sort of "unusual affliction," (possibly that his amps only go up to 10).

"Better Call Saul" is expected to debut in November. “Breaking Bad” writers Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould and Thomas Schnauz, with Sony Pictures Television and Gran Via Productions, will executive produce.
