HOLLYWOOD — It was reported that Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor Giancarlo Esposito had been posing for photographs while holding memorabilia from some sort of geek thing.
“He’s just having some fun I guess,” said Esposito’s talent agent Tim Gerkins. “People like to meet him at conventions, and for whatever reason they usually ask him to hold some kind of toy or plush doll when they get their picture taken. I don’t get it, and neither does he I don’t think, but again, it’s all in good fun. I hope.”
Fans expressed gratitude for Esposito’s hospitality.
“I thought he was gonna be all stern and creepy, like his character Gus Fring,” said Samantha Thomas, a cosplayer. “But he’s actually really nice in person! My friends and I had him take pictures with us while holding plushies from Chainsaw Man and Five Nights at Freddy’s. He said that was so awesome.”
Esposito himself weighed in on the discussion.
“I think people are just happy to see me, and I am happy to see them,” explained Esposito. “No, I don’t know what any of this stuff is, but for some reason people want me to hold their little dollies when we get our picture taken.”
At press time, Giancarlo Esposito was seen stomping around the set of The Boys while wearing his big red Astro Boy boots.
