An actor known for his recent run as a bad guy on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” has signed on with an NBC pilot, Deadline.com reports.
Giancarlo Esposito, who had an electrifying turn as Gus Fring on "Breaking Bad," joins the J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke pilot "Revolution," the story reports. Esposito is currently recurring on ABC’s "Once Upon a Time," and is known for his film roles in “The Usual Suspects,” “School Daze” and other movies.
“Revolution” has sci-fi overtones, with a premise in which all forms of energy have ceased to exist worldwide and a group of people struggle to find a way to reach their loved ones. Esposito will play a military man, Captain Neville — a Southern gentleman and tough soldier who may not be exactly what he seems to be.
Feature director Jon Favreau ("Elf," "Iron Man") is directing the pilot.
