Is Armando Bacot in 'Outer Banks' Season 3? (SPOILERS)

The UNC basketball player might be 6'11, but he kept it relatively low-key with his cameo in Outer Banks Season 3, Episode 8. So who does Armando play in Outer Banks?

They say the greatest acting challenge is conveying a message to the audience without speaking a word, and Armando does so in Outer Banks Season 3, Episode 8 with aplomb.

Armando plays Barracuda Mike's bodyguard, watching JJ (Rudy Pankow) and John as they attempt to negotiate travel to South America with the notorious drug smuggler (that's Barracuda Mike FYI, not JJ or John).

While JJ attempts to convince Barracuda Mike that all he and John want is a ride, John awkwardly asks Armando's character, "What do you guys catch out here?" Armando the bodyguard responds wryly, "Money." The line delivery is comically solid. John gets the hint and stops asking questions.

John throws in an, "Anyways, nice to meet you fellas," and Armando's facial expression in response is priceless. Sadly, that's the last we see of Armando's cameo in Outer Banks Season 3, but he certainly made it memorable! Could this be the start of a new career path for the basketball player? We'll just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, you can stream all 10 episodes of Outer Banks Season 3, now on Netflix.
