It’s a new Day for Raúl Castillo…
The 40-year-old Mexican American actor has landed a recurring role on the upcoming third season of Netflix’s One Day At A Time.
Castillo will play Mateo, a dad friend of Penelope’s (Justina Machado) from school, who turns into something more.
A reimagining of Norman Lear’s classic sitcom, One Day at a Time follows three generations of a Cuban-American family navigating the ups and downs of life. A newly-single mom and military veteran journeys through the triumphs and tribulations that come with raising two strong-willed, mega-millennial children, all the while enlisting the “help” of her old-school mother and her building manager-turned-invaluable confidant.
Stephen Tobolowsky, Todd Grinnelland Marcel Ruiz also star.
Norman Lear executive produces, with Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce executive producing and co-showrunning.
One Day at a Time is produced by Sony Television Productions for Netflix.
Castillo, who rose to acclaim on HBO’s Looking, stars as Paps in the film We the Animals, based on the Justin Torres novel and directed by Jeremiah Zagar. He was most recently seen in ensemble series Seven Seconds, Ricky Gervais’ Special Correspondents opposite America Ferrera, Joe Swanberg’s anthology drama series Easy, and the Robia Roshid-created Atypical, all on Netflix.
