Darren Barnet is practically guaranteed to be your next Netflix crush. He plays Paxton in the new teen comedy series Never Have I Ever, created by none other than Mindy Kaling. The show follows Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan), a 15-year-old girl who is facing her fair share of unusual hardships and regular teen drama. Devi knows exactly which boy she's after, too, which is where Darren's character, Paxton, comes in. He's a nice-guy jock who is totally not afraid to show off his six-pack—lucky for Devi and for Netflix viewers.

Here’s everything you need to know about Darren.

@neverhaveiever coming to @netflix on my BIRTHDAY April 27th! I could not have asked for a better gift. Created by the most badass duo I’ve ever seen, @mindykaling & @loulielang. A coming of age comedy that will make you laugh while also hitting you straight in the heart. I play Paxton. An aloof jock with a heart of gold and layers you might not see on the surface.
