Better Call Saul has dialed up a third cast member.

Michael McKean has signed on to Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, EW has confirmed. The Laverne & Shirley/This is Spinal Tap vet will co-star as a gifted lawyer named Dr. Thurber who is hampered by a strange affliction on AMC’s meth drama prequel, which follows the exploits of oily lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) before hooking up with Walter White (Bryan Cranston). The show, which is slated to hit the air in November, also features another Bad alum, Saul’s stone-faced PI Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks).

McKean starred in the short-lived HBO comedy Family Tree last year, and his recent TV credits include guest gigs on Happy Endings and Law & Order: SVU.

The news was first reported by Deadline.
