Breaking Bad’s” Betsy Brandt will join the cast of the Showtime series “Masters of Sex.”

Brandt will play Barbara, the secretary to Michael Sheen’s William Masters. She will also be working alongside Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson.

This will be Brandt’s first role since NBC pulled “The Michael J. Fox Show” in February.  Brandt co-starred as Fox’s wife.

Brandt is represented by Talent Works and Patty Woo Management. She and her “Breaking Bad” cast mates received the award for best drama series ensemble at the 2014 SAG Awards.
