In the new Netflix series ” The Recruit,” starring Noah Centineo as Owen , there’s a moment when his character finds himself in the middle of a shootout. Owen recognizes one of the people working for the other side as a woman he met in a bar as he ducks from a hail of bullets.
Momentarily, he forgets about the life-threatening situation at hand. And, he gives a small wave of acknowledgement to her. To this, the woman responds by shooting at him which was very rude of her.
‘The Recruit’ is an atypical CIA drama because of moments like these
“The Recruit” is an atypical CIA drama because of moments like these. Centineo’s Owen is a CIA employee who finds himself in the field à la Jack Ryan. Instead of immediately knowing what to do and how to defend himself, this CIA employee is an attorney who is immediately in over his head.
Centineo says “That’s a differentiation between our show, ‘The Recruit’ and many other spy genre shows and films. Usually, the lead is an accomplished spy, you know, someone that is very experienced and very good at what they do.” also read:-Vin Diesel starred in Avatar: The Way of Water?

This is what happening between Owen and Doltish
The Recruit is created by the showrunner behind high stakes,Alexi Hawley. TV shows Castle and The Rookie both starred Nathan Fillion. Hawley says of Owen “I have said from the beginning that the second he gets good at his job, I’m not interested.”
Owen is a confident lawyer, quick on his feet unlike doltish. It probably could be an accomplished spy, if that’s what he was trained to do. The series begins on his first day on the job at the CIA. There, he’s tasked with grunt work but discovers a credible blackmail threat against the agency by a former asset. His boss tells him to investigate, and Owen’s baptism by fire begins.
Centineo loves that Owen’s constantly trying to take all the information
Centineo says “I love that Owen’s constantly trying to take all the information that’s being thrown at him and wield it as a weapon to keep himself alive, because if he wasn’t as smart as he is, he would have been dead”.
The role is a fitting one for the actor. He is best-known as the loveable jock Peter Kavinsky in the “To All the Boys” YA film franchise. Recently, he was seen in “Black Adam,” starring Dwayne Johnson.
