Japanese-American actor and writer Darren Barnet (NBC’s This Is Us) takes his place among the next generation of Hollywood heartthrobs with a starring role in Netflix’s highly anticipated coming-of-age comedy Never Have I Ever created and inspired by executive producer Mindy Kaling’s childhood. Never Have I Ever centers around the complicated life of Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a modern-day first-generation Indian American teenage girl. Barnet will soon heat up televisions across the nation as Devi’s love interest Paxton Hall-Yoshida, a popular upperclassman with a heart of gold. If that’s not enough, Barnet is also set to star as the male lead of the latest installment of the American Pie franchise titled, American Pie Presents: Girls Rules (slated for a 2020 release).
Born in Los Angeles, California, Barnet started his entertainment career off on a high note when he booked the role of Young Jack Pearson in NBC’s award-winning series This Is Us. From there, he went on to making guest appearances in everything from CBS’ Criminal Minds to Netflix’s Family Reunion. Barnet also starred as a series regular on a variety projects including Hot Seth in Turnt for Facebook Watch, Chase in the VICE Blackpills series Simi Valley, and finally as Joey in the Lifetime original movie Instakiller. Barnet’s workout regimen consists of Calisthenics and martial arts; he’s also available to share his “at home” routine with audiences as we all practice social distancing.
