Giancarlo-Esposito.jpg“Breaking Bad” star Giancarlo Esposito is joining J.J. Abrams drama pilot “Revolution” for NBC. Recognize him from somewhere else? Yup! He’s also Sidney Glass/the Genie/Magic Mirror on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”

“Revolution,” which also has “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke on board is described as an intense action drama which looks at a group of people trying to find their loved ones and stay alive in a world where there are no longer any forms of energy.

Esposito will play Captain Nevile, who is described as a “hard-as-steel military man with a genteel southern manner who may not always be what he seems.” Even cooler? Jon Favreau will be directing the pilot.
