From Dorne/Westeros to Colombia! Pedro Pascal will follow up his mind-blowing performance as Game of Thrones' Oberyn Martell with a leading role in Netflix's upcoming drug drama Narcosaccording to Variety.

The based-on-a-true-story series will star Pascal as Mexican DEA agent Javier Peña, who travels to the South American country on a U.S. mission to capture and kill cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura). Narcos currently has a 10-episode order and is slated for a 2015 premiere.

This is not the first time Pascal will carry a badge for a role: The actor's resume also includes special agent credits on Graceland and The Mentalist.

    Thanks for the information and it would be nice to see Wagner Moura on a show, even if he's playing a Colombian.

    But you could of spelled Columbia proper.

    After his good performance on GOT, many will at least watch the pilot.

    I did not remember him in Graceland. Is he a regular ?

    Fantastic - narcos will def be on my list to watch! Dissapointed that we wont be seeing the fantastic oberyn martell again but hopefully pedro brings his new character to life in the same way!

    Thanks for the Graceland reminder it was driving me nuts where I knew him from all season. I imagine I will be reminded again next week as Briggs will probably be having flashbacks of killing Juan.
