Deadline reports, Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn has been cast in a recurring role in NBC’s Shades of Blue season two. She’s set to play the opposite of Jennifer Lopez. You can read the full details below:

Emmy winner Gunn will play a City Councilwoman on the rise and primed for a run at the Mayor’s office. She’s the former protégée of Wozniak (Liotta), and she used to be part of Harlee’s (Lopez) dirty crew of cops. Gunn’s character is described as being a chameleon who rose up the ranks of the NYPD to Captain and then launched a political career fueled by her charisma and the fact that she is as comfortable at a blue-collar bar as she is at the Governor’s mansion. As the season progresses, the details of her meteoric rise and her much darker and Machiavellian side comes to the fore.
