Giancarlo Esposito Boards The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials


Giancalo Eposito, lately well-known for having played Gus Fring on AMC’s hit series, “Breaking Bad,” has taken a role in 20th Century Fox’s The Scorch Trials, the upcoming sequel to the now-in-theaters hit The Maze Runner (If you haven’t seen it yet, stop reading now as the following does contain some spoilers). The Hollywood Reporter has the news, reporting that Esposito will play Jorge, a pilot for WICKED.

Also starring Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Aiden Gillen and Patricia Clarkson, The Scorch Trials adapts James Dashner’s second book in the series, following Thomas and the other Gladers as they have escaped the maze and are put into a dormitory where they face new threats.

The Scorch Trials is slated to begin filming next month and will hit theaters on September 18, 2015.
