Community Exclusive: Giancarlo Esposito's Back!

Community Season 4Breaking Bad Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito is headed back to NBC’s Community, sources tell TVLine exclusively.

Reprising his role as Pierce’s newly discovered baby bro Gilbert, the actor — who made his Community debut in one of Season 3’s three finales — is set to appear in an early Season 4 installment.

Additional details surrounding the guest spot are being kept under wraps, but perhaps he’ll figure into the upcoming episode that takes place at Pierce’s massive (and “twisted”?) mansion? (Reps for the NBC comedy could not confirm the actor’s encore at this time.)

Esposito currently is playing a fierce militia captain on NBC’s new drama Revolution. He followed his explosive Breaking Bad turn last year with a memorable arc on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, as the Magic Mirror/newspaper reporter Sydney Glass.

Community’s senior year begins Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30c.

  1. Cool. Cool cool cool. I can’t wait to see him again. October 19th is still so far away.

  2. Patti says:

    Cool. I liked his community episode last season. Also I hope he comes back to once upon a time. I really liked him and Sydney deserves better than Regina. He should get a happy ever after

  3. Superhero says:

    More Giancarlo Esposito on television is always a good thing.

  4. Leah says:

    Great actor. Great show. Great news.

  5. Tansy says:

    He’s practically the flavor of the month.

  6. LC says:

    This is great. I’m glad Pierce is getting a good storyline. But you know I wouldn’t mind some spoilers or hints about Annie. She does still exist right? Or is she just going to be the one who gives advice to everyone else like she was in season 3?

    • digitalred93 says:

      This. And a few Shirley spoilers would be “nice” too.

      • LC says:

        Yeah. But we’ve had some spoilers about Shirley in the thanksgiving episode – have you seen them? Basically we’ve heard about everyone except Annie and if they just write her off like some secondary character like they did in the final episode of season 3 I will not be impressed.

    • Angela says:

      Good point. I too would certainly be interested to hear what she (and Shirley) will be up to of note this coming season.
      Anywho, hooray for recurring characters. Look forward to seeing what happens with Esposito this season.

    I really wish someone would release the Dvd of his great Cops-based series Bakersfield PD. It was a good fish out of water show that never really got a chance.
