Be forewarned, Game of Thrones fans: there are mild spoilers ahead.

After the actor's departure from HBO's Game of Thrones last week, former Red Viper of Dorne Pedro Pascal has just been tapped to star in Netflix's upcoming drama Narcos. According to Deadline, Pascal will play Javier Pena, the Mexican DEA agent responsible for bringing down legendary drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, played by Elysium's Wagner Moura. RoboCop director Jose Padilha is set to bring the series to Netflix, so viewers can expect a pretty high level of quality when it debuts next year.
