Serb Croatian actor Stefan Kapičić, best known for voicing the metal-covered juggernaut Colossus in the 'Deadpool' franchise, has landed a recurring role in the fourth season of AMC's popular drama 'Better Call Saul,' the Hollywood Reporter states.

Kapičić, a self-professed comic book nerd, expressed his joy at the news: "I'm thrilled that I have a chance to become a part of Better Call Saul family. It is one of my favorite shows on TV and it's a dream come true be a part of the Breaking Bad universe. The amazing team and talented cast behind this wonderful show are a delight to work with and I can't wait for everyone to see what is in store for this upcoming season."

Having established himself as the voice behind one of the X-Men's most iconic superheroes, with 'Better Call Saul' Kapičić now gets the opportunity to showcase his actual acting skills on screen. Colossus entailed performance capture work and little more, with this latest role set to provide him with a wider recognition.

Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould as a spin-off prequel to the highly-acclaimed 'Breaking Bad,' 'Better Call Saul' chronicles the life of attorney and deadbeat Jimmy McGill as he tries to get his life together and establish a law practice. The same Jimmy McGill then transforms into the beloved character of Saul Goodman that 'Breaking Bad' fans could not get enough of. 

The most recent season, season 3, aired between April 2017 and June 2017, with the fourth installment with Kapičić set to release sometime later this year. In accordance with the previous seasons, season 4 will have 10 episodes as well. 

'Better Call Saul' is one of AMC's highest performing shows, pulling in an average of 3.7 million total viewers. It was the third-highest-rated drama on cable television, behind only the network's very own 'The Walking Dead,' and its prequel 'Fear the Walking Dead.'
