Nearly three years since the series finale of Breaking Bad, some of us fans are still recovering. With Walter White’s meth career finally put to a sad, breathtaking rest, we still crave just a little more of the chemistry teacher who lost it all. There was a kind of dark beauty in the lead character’s fall from grace that kept audiences engrossed throughout its lifespan and have fans still talking about the show long after the finale aired.
Breaking Bad was a series about a high school chemistry teacher who, after finding out that he had inoperable lung cancer, decided to cook up meth with a student to make enough money for his family to live off of when died. While the character begins as a good guy with a woeful tale, the drug world eventually drags him down; he falls completely to the dark side in the final season. The show was so raw and real, it struck a chord with viewers and cast members alike. It even spawned a spin-off series, still airing on AMC.
Breaking Bad’s cast was filled with a significant number of splendid actors and some really stunning performances. The show and its crew won several awards, slipping into the hearts and minds of fans for five seasons. Most of Breaking Bad’s actors and actresses had long, stunning careers before joining the AMC classic crime drama. Even the new actors were all very talented individuals. So what is all of that incredible talent up to now?

Singer, actor and producer Giancarlo Esposito played Gus in Breaking Bad. Esposito’s voice will be in the new, live action version of the Jungle Book in 2016 as Akela the Wolf. Also look for him in drama The Long Home adapted from the novel by William Gay, the thriller Money Monster, the drama Stuck, and the TV series about a ragtag bunch of dancing teenagers in the 1970s called The Get Down. The actor will be featured at the Illinois State University’s Black History Cultural Dinner where he will discuss with students and staff the “collegiate student’s main nonacademic responsibility: to get to know people who are different than you.” There are some rumors that the actor might revisit the role as Gus in Better Call Saul’s season 2, but none of those have been substantiated. Guess we’ll just have to wait to find out!
