When I wrote about how good the new drama Under the Dome is, I forgot to mention the fact that the talented actor Dean Norris plays car-dealership owner and politician James “Big Jim” Rennie on the hit show. However, if you haven’t watched Under the Dome, Norris will probably strike your memory as the emotionally stunted, quick-to-anger Hank Schrader on the AMC smash Breaking Bad. Watch Norris, below, on Late Show with David Letterman, where he talks about his Harvard days, his travels through Europe, and a hot Swedish fling he had post-grad.
Given Breaking Bad’s record breaking premiere numbers of 5.49 million viewers, and over 10 million viewers each week with Under the Dome, Norris is about to become television’s most recognizable actor. But that’s not all: Norris will also be in this year’s Ridley Scott-directed The Counsellor, also starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz. The film has a planned release date of October 25th. He’s about to Break the Bank!
Psst: Dear Dean, While we know you play for the other team, if you took your shirt off and added a nipple clamp or two, you’d fit right in at your local Daddy leather bar. Hey, it’s nice to keep your options open.
