No one, and we mean no one, can handle a borderline-ludicrous family dynamic like Betsy Brandt, which is great news for ABC's The Club. The Breaking Bad actress will co-star in the upcoming drama pilot as Leslie, the wife of a co-owner who spends the club's profits and abandons her with their child in order to pursue his own father's trophy wife. The role is actually in second position to Brandt's work on NBC's currently shelved The Michael J. Fox Show, in which she portrays MJF's wife Annie. You never thought you'd find yourself rooting against Michael J. Fox, but here you are, you utter monsters.
