If there's been a dearth of gun-wielding grandpas in your life, rejoice! Everybody's favorite old man assassin is heading back to TV.

Jonathan Banks, aka Mike Ehrmantraut, aka WORLD'S BEST GRANDPA, has been cast in the upcoming "Breaking Bad" spinoff/prequel "Better Call Saul."

While the series will focus primarily on Bob Odenkirk's sleazy but scarily effective lawyer/massage enthusiast Saul Goodman, Banks will be a series regular.

Here's to hoping that Grandpa Mike kicks all of the ass on the show. And while we'll be tuning in November no matter what, perhaps they could drop some more casting updates before then? aka FREE HUELL!
