It kind of sucks (for him), but after Breaking Bad and The Mandalorian, Giancarlo Esposito will probably forever be typecast as a villain. But he’s just so good at it. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s his almost stoic demeanor, or the way he can turn a smile into the most menacing glower you’ll ever see, but Giancarlo Esposito is pretty much the perfect villain. Which is why I thought it would be fun to imagine what classic bad guys the man probably best known as “The Chicken Man” Gus Fring could play.
Now, some of these characters might seem ancient, but Giancarlo Esposito could still pull them off. I’m pretty sure he could play any villain you could imagine. As I said before, he’s just so good at it.
