Dean Norris teases "high body count" in "Under the Dome" season 2

The second season of CBS' hit horror-thriller "Under The Dome" is on its way, and the show's big, bad Dean Norris sat down with ET's Rob Marciano to talk about what to expect from his character and the show in the new season.

"It's a lot more fun playing the evil guy," said Norris, who plays the violent and manipulative "Big Jim" Rennie on "Under The Dome." Norris is perhaps best known for playing DEA agent Hank Schrader on the AMC drama "Breaking Bad." "Playing morally constricted characters is not nearly as fun as playing a crazy guy."

How crazy is Big Jim? According to Norris, he's going to be getting even more violent as the episodes roll on.

"There will be some killing... and Big Jim is usually the guy who's killing," laughed Norris, 51. "It's a lot of fun killing people on camera. Yeah, we take some people out. We have a high body count this year too."

"Under The Dome"'s second season premieres Monday, June 30, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
