Pedro Pascal Lands New Netflix Gig
SPOILER ALERT! For those of you still recovering from Pedro Pascal’s departure from ‘Game of Thrones’, don’t worry.
The Chilean-American actor, who charmed everyone (especially us!) for playing Prince Oberyn Martell on the hit HBO series but to only violently exit last week, is set to star in the new Netflix series ‘Narcos’.
Directed by Jose Padilha (RoboCop), ‘Narcos’ is the true-life story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels across the globe and attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict.
It centers on notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar (Moura) and Javier Pena (Pascal), a Mexican DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill him.
Narcos will premiere on Netflix in 2015.
