Netflix is going back to the Saw franchise. The upcoming Jigsaw TV series will star Giancarlo Esposito, who played Jigsaw in the last three films of the franchise.
Giancarlo Esposito is a Hollywood actor, known for his roles in Breaking Bad and Lost. He has been cast as the lead role in Netflix’s upcoming Jigsaw TV series.
After starring in Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian, and a slew of other TV series, Giancarlo Esposito is bringing his next endeavor to Netflix. Jigsaw, Netflix’s latest series, was revealed on Thursday and is presently in production at Netflix Studios: Brooklyn. Before you get too excited that this will somehow tie into the Saw film series, keep in mind that Jigsaw is unrelated to the Chris Rock-led picture from earlier this year.
Eric Garcia, the showrunner and creator of Matchstick Men and Repo Men, developed Jigsaw. According to Netflix, the series is about the “biggest heist ever attempted.” Jose Padiha of Elite Squad will direct the first two episodes of Jigsaw. Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Justin Levy, and Russell Fine are among the show’s executive producers.
Jigsaw showcases Esposito as skilled thief Leo Pap. He’ll be joined by Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell, and Jai Courtney, among others. Netflix also released the complete cast roster and character profiles for all of the major characters, in addition to introducing the series.
Jigsaw’s main cast and character descriptions may be seen below.
“Leo Pap” – Giancarlo Esposito (he/him) Leo is a born leader who is quick-witted, passionate, and focused, with an engineer’s intellect and a rigorous attention to detail. He started stealing at an early age, and despite having a chance to leave, he couldn’t stay away from the criminal life, and his relapse lost him his family and his freedom.
Paz Vega (she/her) in the role of “Ava Mercer” She’s an attorney by day, but she’s just as comfortable on a rifle range or in a gallery as she is in a courtroom. Despite her loose behavior, she is a passionate soul who would go to any length to defend the few people she cares about.
“Roger Salas” is played by Rufus Sewell (he/him). Roger is a salesperson with an amazing capacity to manipulate people to his goals. He is a former robber who has remade himself as a top notch security specialist. To a degree, he is loyal, but his own goals and wants will always win out.
“Hannah Kim” – Tati Gabrielle (she/her) Hannah is a lady who wears several jobs and is motivated by much more than money. She is intelligent, ambitious, and flexible. She’ll have to employ every trick in her bag of tricks to find a path up and out as a chameleon who moves between the worlds of high-stakes finance and low-lying crime.
“Stan Loomis” is played by Peter Mark Kendall (he/him). Stan is a small-time smuggler with a big-time love for life’s epicurean delights. He has a never-ending tongue and the heart of a hopeless romantic. He’s loyal to a fault, and he’ll sacrifice anything for the object of his love, even if it means sacrificing the affluent life he’s created for himself.
“Judy Goodwin” – Rosaline Elbay (she/her) Judy, the crew’s demolitions expert, is a headstrong and independent spitfire with a caustic edge who is smart and skilled enough to avoid making errors.
“Bob Goodwin” is played by Jai Courtney (he/him). Bob is a chest-puffing alpha guy with a flair for safecracking and pushing people’s buttons. He’s handsome enough to be a menace while on the hunt, and clever enough to be deadly to anybody who comes in his way.
“Nazan Abassi” is played by Niousha Noor (she/her). FBI Agent Nazan Abassi, driven, damaged, and tenacious to a fault, is the roaring fire that threatens to burn our gang of thieves down—if the flames don’t devour her first.
