Pedro Pascal, star of The Mandalorian, Disney + phenomenon series, was confirmed in the cast of The Bubble, a new comedy film that will have the Netflix original seal. The actor tops a list of big names in the industry that have also been confirmed in production.
Directed by Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin), the film also features Karel Gillian (Guardians of the Galaxy), David Duchovny (X-Files), Keegan-Michael Key (The Prom), Leslie Mann (Frustrated Holidays) and Maria Bakalova (Borat: Next Cinema Tape).
The film follows a group of actors and actresses trapped inside a pandemic bubble in a hotel, trying to complete a film. The unusual situations caused by the moment, seen with a comic eye, will be the focus of Apatow, who wrote the script alongside Pam Brady.
Pascal is an old Netflix acquaintance. The actor starred in three seasons of Narcos (2015-2017) and was in the cast of two successful films on the platform: Operation Frontier (2019) and Little Big Heroes (2020).
The Bubble marks Apatow’s first film outside Universal Studios, the filmmaker’s longtime partner. For Netflix, he was also a producer and co-creator of the dramatic comedy Love (2016-2018).
