Breaking Bad‘s Bob Odenkirk is overdosing on legal gigs.

The actor — who plays Walt and Jesse’s corrupt attorney Saul on the AMC drama — will return to How I Met Your Mother for a Season 8 guest spot, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Odenkirk, who was last seen as Marshall’s Goliath National Bank boss Arthur Hobbs in Season 6, will reappear in Episode 2 when his corporate lawyer pseudo-represents Barney in his pre-nup negotiations with Quinn. Judging from what executive producer Craig Thomas told us about October’s breakup extravaganza, we’re guessing the discussions do not go well.

Odenkirk’s previous credits include Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and Entourage, as well as writing stints on Saturday Night Live, Late Night With Conan O’Brien and Tenacious D.

HIMYM kicks off its eighth season on Sept. 24.
