Giancarlo Esposito “would be interested” in a spin-off from The Mandalorian centered on his big bad, Moff Gideon.
Famed for his performance as meth kingpin Gus Fring in the Breaking Bad universe, Esposito has brought the same chilling menace to a galaxy far, far away as the Empire’s moustachioed officer.
With multiple Star Wars announcements arriving earlier this month, Giancarlo suggested he wants a piece of the action in an interview with Esquire.

“I sat there and went, ‘Hey, what about me?!'” he joked. “People keep asking me, ‘Why aren’t you in season two more?'” I said, ‘Because we’re teasing you. I’m the heavy, and it’ll take a little time to get to what Moff really wants.'”
Moving onto the possibility of a Moff spin-off, the actor commented: “The answer is, yes, I would be interested in that if there was enough material and storyline to indulge that.
“But first I want to be true to this project.”

As for what’s in store for his villain in The Mandalorian‘s third season, Giancarlo added: “In some ways, history repeats itself.
“I think Moff Gideon is very elusive and has had a piece in every part of the Empire. I think you’ll start to see that and it’ll be a real clue when you see the finale.”
The Mandalorian season 1 and season 2 are streaming now on Disney+.
