After AMC's hit series 'Breaking Bad' came an AMC hit series 'Better Call Saul'. Do you see a trend here? Giancarlo Esposito certainly does.

Actor, famous for his turn as Gus Fring, praised as one of the best TV villains ever, is more than open to play his character again, possibly in his own spin-off series. Speaking to Insider, Esposito expressed his interest in exploring Fring's rise to power – a little-explored part of the original series.

"I've always wanted, and felt like, there's room for material for the rise of Gus. I feel like it'd be interesting to know where he came from. I would consider and think about that particular scenario because I think it's another moral tale that allows us to view into humanity and into how we push our humanity aside and to be demonstrative and to say who we are and we lose everything in the process, because we know where Gus ends. We don't know where he began".

That certainly does sound like something fans would love to see. Of course, it's just an idea, but if show's creator Vince Gilligan decides to give it a go, we might just have a next big hit in a world of 'BreakingBadVerse'.

Despite fans' generally positive response to actor's proposition, some are pointing out at his age Esposito is just not young enough to star as Fring in his younger days.
