According to Deadline, the Game of Thrones actor has been casted in Netflix's Narcos.

Based on real events following the story of the growth and spread of cocaine drug cartels, Narcos centers on Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura).

Pascal has been tapped to play Javier Pena, a Mexican DEA agent sent to Colombia by the U.S. on a mission to capture and kill Escobar.

Narcos is set to premiere on Netflix in 2015!
