MoCo’s Young Mazino Stars in New Netflix Series ‘Beef’

by MCS Staff

Beef was last week’s #1 series on Netflix. The show is about a near-accident in a parking lot that turns two strangers into enemies. The argument, or “beef”, quickly develops to escalating acts of revenge as Amy (Ali Wong) and Danny (Steven Yeun) learn about each other’s identities and families and become more and more involved in each other’s lives. The role of Danny’s younger brother, Paul, is played by MoCo native Young Mazino.

Mazino is a Silver Spring native and graduated from Sherwood in 2009, where he excelled in track & field. He has previously been in shows like Prodigal Son, Blue Bloods and New Amsterdam, but Beef marks what’s likely Mazino’s most popular role to date. In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Mazino mentioned growing up in Maryland  and developing an interest in music and acting at a very young age. “Growing up as a kid I played the violin and I was performing just seemingly endlessly in concerts and recitals,” he told PEOPLE. “Since elementary school, I was always participating in the school plays,” he said, recalling of his early experience acting, “that feeling was electric, just getting to be outside of myself.”
