Giancarlo Esposito has mentioned that he has an idea for a Breaking Bad spinoff primarily based on his character within the present. While chatting with Esquire, Esposito, who performed the function of business-like drug kingpin Gus Fring within the acclaimed collection, revealed that he has an idea for a prequel that delves into his life previous to the present and Better Call Saul.

Esposito mentioned his idea consists of Fring being a army man earlier than he turned a drug seller, judging by his love for order and suaveness.

Esposito mentioned, “I have this whole storyline in the back of my head that he came from political royalty. I feel like Gus came from the world of order. And that his order came. He was a military man.”

He added, “Out of the military, he gained the ability to observe. You can’t lead unless you can follow… In my brain, he was high up in a military government. He could have stayed there and ran the country. It was handed to him. But he chose a different path to be his own man and to find his own power, regardless of what he was handed. This is what he chose.”

In Breaking Bad, Gus Fring, who posed as a restaurateur to the general public, had dealings with the first character of the Vince Gilligan present, Bryan Cranston’s Walter White. White was the meth “cook” that Fring employed earlier than the 2 had a falling out. It all ended with White taking the assistance of Fring’s outdated foe Hector Salamanca to remove him.
