Kevin Alves joins Netflix comedy ‘No Good Deed’ as recurring


Netflix’s eight-episode comedy series No Good Deed, which was created by Liz Feldman (Dead to Me), has cast Kevin Alves (Yellowjackets) in a recurring role, as per Deadline.

The actor portrays Mikey’s (Denis Leary) harsh-edged, strait-laced son, Nate, with whom he has a tense relationship. The cast, which also features Linda Cardellini, Luke Wilson, Abbi Jacobson, Poppy Liu, Leary and O-T Fagbenle, is led by Ray Romano and Lisa Kudrow, as was previously revealed.

A half-hour dark comedy titled No Good Deed centres on three very different families trying to buy the same 1920s Spanish-style property, which they believe will be the answer to all of their problems. However, as the sellers have learned, sometimes the perfect home can turn into a complete nightmare.

Feldman is executive producing and showrunner for Gloria Sanchez Productions, Christie Smith and Silver Tree, where Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum will direct the pilot and further episodes. Russell Scott and Sherry Thomas are in charge of casting.

The Canadian-born Alves is most known for playing the young Travis on Showtime’s blockbuster series Yellowjackets, which is currently in its third season and has received ten Emmy nominations in its first two seasons. Alves has also had recurring roles on Netflix’s Locke & Key and Freeform’s Shadowhunters. Two Sentence Horror Stories, The Expanse, Degrassi: The Next Generation and Warehouse 13 are among the other TV credits.
