Jett - Giancarlo Esposito to Star in Cinemax Drama; Ten More Join Cast

Share on Reddit

Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) has been cast in a lead role in Cinemax's upcoming drama, Jett, per Deadline. The series has also added in series regular roles, Elena Anaya, Michael Aronov, Gaite Jansen, Chris Backus, Gil Bellows & Violet McGraw. Jodie Turner-Smith, Gentry White, Lucy Walters and Mustafa Shakir are set to recur in the series.

Deadline also notes that Esposito's role on Jett is for one year after a 2-season series regular commitment on Better Call Saul including S3 and the upcoming already filmed, fourth season. If Saul is renewed for a 5th season,"he could return to the AMC series with the production schedule of Jett allowing for that."

Fresh out of prison, world-class thief Daisy ”Jett” Kowalski (Carla Gugino) is forced back into doing what she does best by dangerous and eccentric criminals determined to exploit her skills for their own ends.

No specific character details are being provided beyond the general description that the actors make up the gallery of morally ambivalent two-bit hoods, budding femme fatales and compromised law enforcers surrounding anti-heroine Jett Kowalski (Gugino).

I hear Esposito will play Baudelaire, a powerful crime lord; Anaya will play Maria, who served as a surrogate mother for Kowalski’s daughter (McGraw) when she was in prison; and Jansen will play Phoenix, an ex-junkie hooker.
