Michael Schneider Variety Editor at Large Hands down, Giancarlo Esposito remains the busiest man in show business. Over the past year he’s starred in AMC’s “Parish” (which he also executive produces), Netflix’s “The Gentlemen,” Disney+’s “The Mandalorian,” MGM+’s “Godfather of Harlem,” Netflix’s “Kaleidoscope” and voiced Max’s “Harley Quinn.” And on the film side, his recent gigs include “Abigail” and the upcoming “MaXXXine” and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Megalopolis.” “I wrote in my notes last week, ‘I’m the busiest motherfucker,’” Esposito laughs. “I know.

It was a very weird note, just to remind myself that all my dreams are coming true… When you start to make more movies and television and do a bunch of things all at once, you realize, ‘I’m doing what I love to do every day.’ It makes it more of a meditation.

I sort of step out of the way, and allow the writing to come through and my instinct to take over.” Esposito always has a lot to say, and his role on “Parish” has given him reason to dig deep into his past and have an honest conversation about his struggles — and how that drive to succeed for his family has led him to the career he has now.

On this episode of Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast, Esposito gets brutally honest about the personal work he’s done to be a better father, and how he’s still managing those past demons.
