Far Cry 6: Giancarlo Esposito Has Opened Up About Playing The Game's Main Villain

  • Giancarlo Esposito, perhaps best known for his role as the villainous Gus Fring on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, is playing the villain in Far Cry 6. The first trailer introduces his character, Anton Castillo, and gives us a look at how his relationship with his son will play into the game's plot.

He talks about the character's past, and how he's trying to prove that he's a better leader than his father, a previous president of the game's fictional setting of Yara, was.
