Golden Globe-nominated actor Wagner Moura will be a guest on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, making Brazilians excited for his appearance.

Jornal do Brasil said that prior to the Golden Globe Awards night on Sunday, the "Narcos" star will first have his interview with Fallon to discuss his role as Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.

It claimed that the fans of the Brazilian actor from his native country can't wait to find out how it will turn out.

Meanwhile, ZH Entertainment said that during the interview Moura is also expected to discuss what fans can expect with the second season of "Narcos."

The Netflix TV series is a real life story of how illegal drugs are sold through cartels all around the world, as per IMDB. It also exposes the violent conflict of drug peddlers with law enforcement agents.

Escobar is the main character of the TV show, where he operates a group that primarily sells cocaine. He appears in the series with Boyd Holbrook, who plays the role of DEA agent Steve Murphy.

IMDB said that Murphy had a mission to capture and kill Escobar in Colombia.

Given a 78 percent rating by Rotten Tomatoes, "Narcos" is praised for the solid acting of its cast and fast-paced storyline. But it was highlighted that the popular TV series "lacks sympathetic characters."

On the other hand, Telegraph noted that the 10 episodes of "Narcos" Season 1 were able to tell a story on the drama that surrounds "drugs, women, mega-wealth and mass murder."

Telegraph's Patrick Smith tagged the show as "superb" because of its plot and drama.

"Tune out for a second and you'll lose track as Escobar brazenly spreads his empire to the US; keep your eyes peeled and you'll be rewarded with a piercingly evocative portrait of Seventies and Eighties Medellín, the air thick with sweaty machismo," added Smith.

The Wrap, on the other hand, considered "Narcos" as a provocative show which is worth watching. It added that this will be perfect for audiences who loved "Entourage" or the documentary film "Cocaine Cowboys."

Indeed, the TV series has generated a buzz in the entertainment industry, leading to Moura's Golden Globe nomination in the category "Best Performance By an Actor in a Television Series -- Drama."

The Brazilian actor was previously known for playing the role of Roberto Nascimento for the film "Elite Squad" and its sequel, "Elite Squad: The Enemy Within" and the film "Elysium."
