On Breaking Bad Giancarlo Esposito plays Gus Fring, one of the scariest characters on television. But Joel Keller of New York Magazine scanned Esposito's IMDb profile and noticed a curious credit from 1982:

On your IMDB profile there’s a series of bad guys and maybe some cops and other folks, and then at the very end, it shows you did Sesame Street for a year.

[Laughs] I did! I did the Electric Company theme song and I was Big Bird’s camp counselor, and I’m still trying to find that footage for my children.

Sesame Street reruns from 1982 will never be the same.
