Nelson fills Flavius' shoes perfectly. He's got great comic timing and had previously shown his chops on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and MADtv. A proud Cubano, he's continued to represent la cultura well and will next be starring with Danny Trejo in the feature, Mucho Dinero. And let's not forget all of the style trends that Nelson has set with his Flavius character. Here's a tweet showcasing his trademark orange curls (which happened to get RT'd dozens of times).
