Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito Is Coming to Community

Tonight, comedy-loving Americans will suffer through another NBC Thursday night lineup devoid of the joy that is Community . So how 'bout some news to salve your pain: Vulture has learned that Breaking Bad star and future Emmy-winner Giancarlo Esposito is paying a visit to the Greendale gang. If your face hasn't melted off yet, read on for some details about his character. We've confirmed that Esposito will appear in an upcoming episode as a business associate of Pierce's late father, Cornelius Hawthorne. While the exact reason for his visit is being kept under wraps, we're going to assume that anyone related to Pierce's racist dad can't be a particularly nice guy. Which is just fine by us, since Esposito (who played chicken-and-meth-king Gus Fring on Breaking Bad , just in case you didn't know) has the whole "antagonist" thing down pat. Esposito began work on his Community episode this week. Just when Esposito's half-hour will air is unclear, in part because NBC has not yet set a return date for the show. If you need an Esposito fix sooner, the actor is currently recurring as the Magic Mirror on ABC's hit Once Upon a Time . Or you could just do what we do: Devour episodes of Breaking Bad on an endless loop.

Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston Explains Why Walter White Wears Tighty-Whities

There's no doubt that Bryan Cranston is one of the best actors on television right now. As Walter White on AMC's Breaking Bad , he brilliantly portrays the slow deterioration from a family man to an amoral drug kingpin. His much happier role as another family man, though, came much earlier with the sitcom Malcolm in the Middle , which is now being rerun weeknights on IFC. One thing both characters have in common, though, is a propensity to wear tighty whitey underwear. In an interview with, Cranston explained his thoughts. "When I saw that in the script in  Breaking Bad , I brought it to Vince Gilligan and pointed out that I wore it for seven years on  Malcolm  and he said, "Oh forget it go find something else.,'" Cranston stated. "So I started going through wardrobe and while I was doing that, I realized that when he had Walt in tighty whitey, he did it for a reason.  It meant something and I wanted to get to that root of that. I chose tighty whitey's on  Malcolm  because. A grown man in tighty whiteys, wearing them is funny. Hal wore them because he always wore them and it never occurred to him to wear anything else. He's still a boy. Walter White wore them because he stopped growing." It's an interesting perspective on an already iconic television character. You can check out the rest of the interview over at . Breaking Bad  will return in 2012 for its fifth and (expected to be) final season, while Malcolm in the Middle  is currently airing in syndication on IFC.

Bryan Cranston On What He's Learned From Playing Walter White on 'Breaking Bad' (VIDEO)

As 'Breaking Bad' nears its intense and climactic Season 4 finale, Bryan Cranston went on 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) to talk about his character Walter White's descent into meth-dealing gangsterism.

What I've learned from this experience is that anyone, even the meekest person among us, could become a horrible, dangerous person," he told Matt Lauer.
