‘Game of Thrones’ Star Pedro Pascal to Head Netflix Series ‘Narcos’

Netflix Narcos Pedro Pascal Game of Thrones
Netflix / HBO

We wouldn’t dream of spoiling the most recentGame of Thrones‘ for you, but suffice to say, season 4 star Pedro Pascal will be looking to crack a few skulls outside of Westeros in the future. The fan-favorite star officially landed a prime role in Netflix’s upcoming original series ‘Narcos,’ but as whom you ask?

Brought to our attention via Deadline, Pascal (whose non-Dornish real-life accent admittedly threw us for a loop) will star in Netflix’s new 2015 series ‘Narcos,’ which focuses on the true-life story of cocaine cartels’ growth and spread across the world, and subsequently the attendant efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict.

Where Wagner Moura has already been cast in the role of notorious Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, Pascal will play Javier Pena, a Mexican DEA agent sent to Colombia on a US mission to capture and ultimately kill Escobar. The series itself is written by Chris Brancato (‘Hannibal‘) and directed by ‘RoboCop‘ helmer Jose Padilha, produced by Gaumont Media and executive produced by Padilha and Eric Newman.

Despite having starred in the likes of ‘The Mentalist’ and USA’s ‘Graceland,’ we’re intrigued to see Pedro Pascal given an increased spotlight, so what say you? Does Netflix’s ‘Narcos’ sound worth your time?
