REVOLUTION Ups Ante With BREAKING BAD Star Giancarlo Esposito In Leading Role

giancarloesprevolution

The JJ. Abrams and Eric Kripke NBC pilot Revolution continues to intrigue with news that Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito has been tapped for a lead role.

The high-octane action drama centers on a group of people struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously ceased to exist. Esposito will play Capt. Neville, a hard-as-steel military man with a genteel southern manner who may not always be what he seems. Jon Favreau will direct the pilot.

It’s great to see Esposito in a leading role on a project as intriguing as Revolution. While details on the project are under tight wraps, on the face of it the project seems to be off to a fairly auspicious start. Fingers crossed it all comes together.

Esposito continues to recur on ABC’s Once Upon A Time following his absorbing run on AMC’s Breaking Bad.
