Giancarlo Esposito Says Gus Will Be On BETTER CALL SAUL For A Long Time
Gus Fring returned to the Breaking Bad universe in Better Call Saul last night, but for how long? According to Giancarlo Esposito, Gus will be around for a very long time. Collider sat down with the actor and asked him some questions ahead of his premiere last night, and Esposito indicated that Gus's presence in the show could run right into the events of Breaking Bad...
I said I’d be willing (to return) predicated on a conversation with Vince [Gilligan, Breaking Bad‘s creator who created Saul with Peter Gould] … I respect Vince very, very deeply as I do Peter Gould and all the writers who helped to make Saul a hit in and of itself, outside of Breaking Bad. He assured me that they were going to find the way that would be intriguing and interesting, and I said if that could happen I would come back. It had to be for more than one episode. I’m imagining what Vince was thinking is to take it up to where we begin in Breaking Bad — possibly.
That's great to hear as Gus Fring was definitely one of the best characters in Breaking Bad and a big part of Vince's story. I love how this show is bringing in all the minor characters of Breaking Bad and making us care about the lives they led prior to Heisenberg! Are you excited for Gus to be back?
