Giancarlo Esposito, hot off his villainous turn on AMC’s Breaking Bad, has been tapped for a lead role on NBC’s JJ Abrams/Eric Kripke drama pilot Revolution, directed by Jon Favreau. The high-octane action drama follows a group of people struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist. Esposito, repped by Domain and Principal Entertainment, will play Capt. Neville, a hard-as-steel military man with a genteel southern manner who may not always be what he seems. Esposito continues to recur on ABC’s Once Upon A Time and will guest star in an upcoming episode of NBC’s Community.
