Giancarlo Esposito, who plays the chillingly composed chicken king/drug lord Gus Fring on Breaking Bad, recently had an unpleasant run-in with the NYPD. As told by the Wrap, Esposito was leaving rehearsal for a play (in a suit!) when he was mistaken for a suspect wearing a hoodie: “After several frantic minutes — with him and officers screaming, and their guns drawn — they realized they had the wrong guy.” Then, to add insult to injury, one of the officers recognized him from Once Upon a Time. But Esposito isn’t angry: “I refuse to walk around, carrying that sack of racist crap,” he told the Wrap. “Luis Buñuel made great movies. And in all his movies there’s one old guy … who walks through the background with a big pillowcase, a sack of shit. That’s your stuff. So when I’m healing, I’m healing my stuff.” How supremely zen of him.
He transformed the role of U.S. vice president while serving under Jimmy Carter and was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984. https://t.co/oR0FIxFRAq
