Giancarlo Esposito


Breaking Bad‘s Giancarlo Esposito, who played drug kingpin Gus in the AMC drama, is scheduled to guest-star on NBC’s Community when it returns from hiatus.

It’s being reported that the actor will star as Cornelius Hawthorne, a business associate of Pierce Hawthorne’s (Chevy Chase) late father. Given the two actors’ characters share the same last name, we’re assuming theres some sort of surprise relation that’s going to turn Pierce’s life upside down.

Although Esposito began filming his scenes this week, no air date has been specified for the episode since it’s unclear when the comedy series will return to television

Esposito’s television credits include “Breaking Bad,” and “Law & Order.” He can currently be seen on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” His film credits include “Malcolm X,” “The Usual Supsects,” and “Do the Right Thing.” He can be seen next on the bigscreen alongside Tyler Perry in the film adaptation of “I, Alex Cross.”
