Breaking Bad's R.J. Mitte is heading to ABC Family's Switched at Birth, series creator Lizzy Weiss announced on Twitter today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mitte will play Campbell, "a pre-med college student paralyzed by a snowboarding accident who works at the free clinic alongside Daphne." So far we haven't seen Daphne work at a clinic, but perhaps it's a community service sentence? At the end of last season, Daphne turned herself in for blackmailing a state senator, and by the looks of it, the new season has her spending some time in juvie, so who knows. Switched at Birth comes back in January, and the first two seasons are on streaming Netflix; there is plenty of time to catch up.
