Giancarlo Esposito has been cast in NBC pilot “Revolution,” from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke.
Esposito followed a memorable turn on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” with a recurring part on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” this season. He 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.
Jon Favreau is directing the pilot, written by Kripke, for Bad Robot Prods. Esposito is repped by Domain & Principal.
