Jaimé From Broad City Is Playing Narcos' King Joffrey
If you’ve been keeping up to date with your Netflix series’ recently, you might have spotted a familiar face. Take a closer look at Narcos Season 3 and you’ll see none other than Broad City’s Jaimé, playing new antagonist David Rodriguez.
Arturo Castro, who plays the Latino housemate of Ilana, spoke to Business Insider about his move from comedy to drama, and how Broad City gave him access to better roles.
“I've been able to pick more roles that speak to me more than before I was on the show. I was a huge fan of Narcos for two seasons before I got on it."
“Nothing prepared me to play a ruthless drug dealer like Jaimé,” he joked. “The rough and tumble world of New York comedy. The character's name [on "Narcos"] is David Rodriguez. And he's the son of one of the cartel bosses. He's sort of like the Joffrey from Game of Thrones of this season. He's trying to protect the throne.”
At times, his Narcos character even became infused with a little Jaimé.
“It's funny because there'd be a really dramatic scene in Narcos and I would be standing with my hand on my hip, just be distracted and Jaimé would sort of come out in my personality. And the director would be like, 'Dude, you're doing Jaimé.' And I was like 'Sorry sorry sorry!'"
Let’s hope the Narcos character doesn’t start appearing in Broad City. Now *that* would be strange.
