Florida Man cast: All actors & characters in the Netflix show

Edgar Ramirez in the Florida Man Netflix castNetflix

Here’s your guide to the full cast and characters in Florida Man, the new comedy crime series on Netflix that promises to go “beyond the meme.”

Created by Donald Todd, who was born and raised in The Sunshine State himself, Florida Man borrows the name from the infamous and ongoing viral phenomenon involving the influx of absurd new stories about men in the state doing outrageous things – often involving alligators, weapons, fast food, or all of the above.

But the seven-part Netflix series is so much more than that, diving into “a web of lies, murder, deception, family trauma, and a search for long-lost gold,” all of which comes together to show that “even if you take the Florida Man out of the state (and throw him back in again), he’s still a Florida Man at heart.”

As per the official synopsis: “When a struggling ex-cop (Mike) is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s (Moss) runaway girlfriend (Delly), what should be a quick gig becomes a wildly spiraling journey into buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong.”
