Community Brings Back Giancarlo Esposito for More Brotherly Love with Pierce
I absolutely love getting casting news for Community, and since this could, in all likelihood, be the last season of the show, I’ve been soaking up even the tiniest bit of information. The latest blip on my ultra-sensitive radar is the return of Giancarlo Esposito, who made his first appearance in Season 3 as Pierce’s temporary enemy and half-brother, Gilbert. His appearance was particularly memorable due to the episode’s gimmick of taking place, mostly, inside of an 8-bit style video game, where Gilbert sought to steal Pierce’s inheritance. Sounds borderline crazy, right? Welcome to Community, the show that isn’t happy unless it crosses the line between sane and insane.
Esposito will return early in the show’s fourth season, according to TVLine, but the circumstances under which he reappears is being kept a secret for the time being. Although, way back at Comic-Con, it was teased the show would pay a visit to Pierce’s expansive mansion in all its twisted glory. Could Gilbert pop in during that episode? Quite frankly, any situation could call for Gilbert. It doesn’t even have to make much sense. I mean, the guy was introduced while playing a video game. We could have him back at a corn-eating contest and I’d still just sit back and enjoy it.
Currently you can see Esposito starring in NBC’s newest drama, Revolution, where he plays a militia captain – and probably the only interesting character on the new show. Last year he made some pretty memorable appearances on Once Upon a Time, magically combining the stories of the Magic Mirror and the Genie in the Lamp into one character, but I think we all know Esposito best as Breaking Bad’s Gus Fring, the world’s scariest meth kingpin. He always adds spark to whatever role he takes. Whatever the reason for his return to Community, I’m sure it will be memorable. Even if it’s eating corn.
