Giancarlo Esposito Cast In Upcoming J.J. Abrams Pilot For NBC, "Revolution"

Variety is reporting that versatile actor Giancarlo Esposito has recently been cast in the NBC pilot Revolution, from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke.

Esposito, who not too long ago was earning acclaim co-starring in AMC's hit show Breaking Bad, will play "a southern lieutenant with an air of mystery in the drama about a group of characters struggling to survive in a world in which all energy has vanished."

Giancarlo Esposito stays working these days.  And the man shines in practically everything he does, so I'll be looking forward to this collaboration with J.J. Abrams.
