As part of an interview on the Fifth Season of Breaking Bad to one of the greatest bad guys ever, Giancarlo Esposito revealed to Entertainment Weekly some aspects of his new character in Revolution, Captain Tom Neville. This is what he said:
What can people expect from your character in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming apocalyptic NBC drama, Revolution?
They can expect a guy who is another very cordial, appropriate human being. But Captain Neville has an edge and the ability to wreak havoc and to be very, very violent in a moment’s notice. Whereas Gus is very held in and keeps things close to the vest and put together, Captain Neville is a little more of a loose cannon. He is frightening in a different way that Gus is. He’s a master manipulator, similar to Gus, but he does it in a very different way. And I think he’s living it out his life having been an accountant, before all the power went out and being very controlled—he’s now living his dark side in a very uncontrolled way. I’m excited to bring it to life.
