Breaking Bad salesman Giancarlo Esposito, who seems to be at a different pop culture convention every week, was at — you guessed it — Dutch Comic Con this weekend. Naturally, the conversation turned to Better Call Saul and whether he’d appear on the spin-off series, like when everyone’s favorite Friends character, Joey’s dad, was on Joey. To date, only four characters from Breaking Bad have entered the Jimmy McGill-verse, and only three have names (sorry, “Nurse”). But it’s wildly assumed that Gus Fring will show up at one point, complete with a face, possibly as soon as this week, now that Mike’s up to some shady dealings.
For what it’s worth, Esposito sure wants to be on the show.

There’s no video available yet, but it sounds like something Esposito would say. His response is, of course, a Gus quote from Breaking Bad, but if I were Vince, I’d put him in the show ASAP.
