E3 2014: Breaking Bad’s Gus Trades His Box Cutter for a Giant Dentist Syringe in Upcoming Payday 2 DLC

Giancarlo Esposito, the actor who portrayed Gus Fring in Breaking Bad, is taking on a similar role in the next wave of downloadable content for co-op heist shooter Payday 2. Because, you see, he needs his payday, too.

Instead of a vicious meth kingpin masquerading as a fried chicken fast food chain owner, in Payday 2 Esposito plays The Dentist, a seemingly normal physician with a dark side hiding behind that signature quiet, icy stare. He may not have a box cutter lying around to slit your throat with, but he’s just as intimidating wielding a dentist drill and syringe. Step out of line and his deadly dental assistant, Olga, will scalpel you up real nice.

The Dentist will serve as a brand new heist contact in the Big Bank DLC scheduled to launch June 17th on Steam for $6.99, as well as three additional DLC heists — Hoxton Breakout, The Diamond, and Golden Grin Casino — to follow later in the year.

Watch the live action short embedded below for an introduction to Esposito’s portrayal of The Dentist.

And here are some in-game screenshots of the Big Bank heist.
