Danny Vasquez (Ant-Man) is set to recur on Season 2 of Netflix’s You starring Penn Badgley. He will play the character of Fincher, a cop who fights a deep sense of burnout by exuding a certain dry, blue-collar charm.
You follows bookstore manager Joe Goldberg (Badgley). In the freshman season, which was based on Caroline Kepnes’ bestselling novel and aired on Lifetime, Goldberg becomes obsessed with his customer Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), using social media and the Internet to stalk her.
The show’s second season is loosely based on the author’s second book in the series titled Hidden Bodies and will be released by the streaming service under the Netflix originals banner. It will follow Goldberg to Los Angeles where he meets Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), an aspiring chef that isn’t into social media like his previous leading lady.
Vasquez joins a roster of new additions for the second season including Melanie Field (Heathers) and Magda Apanowicz (Continuum) as well as Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll).
Vasquez was most recently seen in Blumhouse’s Mockingbird, Showtime’s Shameless and appeared in USA’s Colony. He is repped by Smith & Hervey/Grimes Talent Agency & SK Management.
