Geoff Keighley Interviewed actor Giancarlo Esposito during Summer Game Fest 2021 to find out who he thinks would win a battle out between The Mandalorian's Moff Gideon, Far Cry 6's Antón Castillo, and Breaking Bad's Gus Fring. As you can see from this concise list, Esposito is a versatile actor.
Far Cry 6 explores a new kind of character, more extraordinary than life but darker than the shadows. Giancarlo Espisito must play Antón Castillo like a man who does not mind who falls to keep his power. He appears to be a pretty scary character in the trailer.
Which character would win in a fight: Far Cry 6's Antón Castillo, The Mandalorian's Moff Gideon, or Breaking Bad's Gus Fring?
Giancarlo Esposito was asked by host Geoff Keighley which of Antón Castillo, Gus Fring, and Moff Gideon would win if they could fight each other one-on-one-on-one. He answered immediately, saying that Moff Gideon would win.
To quote the actor:
"I think Gus is colder and displays that coldness in a very particular way. I think Antón could be the most violent man on Earth, but given his situation, he may not rise to that occasion... Moff Gideon is otherworldly. This guy thinks in a different way,"
Moff Gideon, Esposito added, does all his own dirty work and possesses tools others lack. In a one-on-one-on-one, of course, the Sci-Fi badass would win.
How is Far Cry 6's Antón Castillo different from the other antagonists?
Antón Castillo, like several previous Far Cry antagonists, represents an individual with immense power. He plays a Fidel Castro-like character in a Cuba-like setting, and the difference is that he is Ubisoft's version, and the island is now named Yara. If Far Cry 6 is taken from history, this is around the time the last president fled from Cuba and Fidel took over.
Far Cry 6 is supposed to be frozen in time, which is convenient because the ending to Far Cry 5 didn't leave much room for a sequel. In any case, many citizens want to escape Castillo's grasp, mainly because of the cruel way he dispenses power. It should go without saying that Moff Gideon and Gus Fring employ similar ruthless methods to achieve their goals.
