Deadline reports he'll play Javier Pena, a "Mexican DEA agent sent to Colombia on a U.S. mission to capture and ultimately kill" Pablo Escobar, the infamous Colombian cocaine kingpin. Wagner Moura will play Escobar.

Jose Padilha will direct the series and Chris Brancato will write it. The true story will premiere on Netflix in 2015.
