    Giancarlo Esposito was speaking during an interview with Comicbook when he revealed that he once stumbled across a fan theory that shipped him in the role of Professor X. “I went along for the ride because I love the fans,” Esposito said. “I started thinking about Professor X because I feel like that could be a character that I would really excel at, and really be great in,” he added.

    Esposito is no stranger to serious characters. With his immaculate portrayal of the always intimidating Gus Fring in ‘Breaking Bad’, playing X would be a piece of cake for him. So it makes sense why fans might think he would be excellent in the role.

    Esposito himself seems to be having the time of his life with the speculation. It now remains to be seen how seriously the filmmakers take his opinion.
