We’ve all had a good peep at ‘Master of None‘ season two by now and pored over and pondered Dev‘s various doings and transpirings.

But for ardent Aziz Ansari fans, it turns out there’s a neat little titbit of info hiding in plain sight in season two, in the form of Ansari’s oft-ripped on cousin Harris.

A handful of Ansari’s more well-known stand-up bits centre around his batshit nuts younger cousin Harris and the various ridiculous things that manage to fall out of his (then) teenaged mouth.

Ansari’s 2010 debut special ‘Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening‘ featured an extended riff on Harris who not only reckons his favourite show was ‘Burn Notice,’ but is a chubby Indian kid, which Aziz likens to a shooting star “only it’s fat, brown, and on the ground.”

Turns out Harris is no longer either 14 or chubby, and Ansari – like other members of his family – brought him on-board for a role in the second season of his hit Netflix show.

Harris, would you believe, actually filled the role of Dev’s cousin Navid in season two’s third episode ‘Religion,’ where the pair (spoiler) fake being sick in order to skive off going to mosque and gorge themselves on pork at a Barbecue Festival instead.

Harris, full name Harris Gani, is now in his early 20s, works as a software engineer in New York, and is quietly BUFF AS FUCK.

Sweet lord. Old mate apparently swapped Cinnabon for endless reps at the gym. That is a hell of a rig.

Harris marked his time on-set (his first tilt at doing anything acting-related) in an Instagram post last week.

Wow. Being on Master of None was quite an experience. It was something I thought I’d always say no to given the chance since I’m such a shy person and really hate putting myself out there, but now I’m very glad I went for it. Not only was it pretty awesome (and very funny) working with @azizansari and my Aunt and Uncle, but it was also great for my personal growth. To be honest, I was insanely nervous these past few days to see how people would react so thank you so much to everyone sending me all these super kind comments. You have no idea how much it means! Tremendous thanks to @azizansari , @alanmyang , @thecarolinagentleman , @ericwareheim , @lenawaithe , and everyone else for all the help and direction when filming. Also, shoutout to @samvellum for convincing me to audition and try this thing out in the first place.

So there you bloody well go. Harris grew up, got hot, and scored a cheeky role in his cousin’s extremely good Netflix series. The circle of life.

Now let’s all reminisce about the time fully-grown-man Aziz Ansari snuck into his 14-year-old cousin’s Facebook study group just to fuck with him mercilessly.

Now *that’s* entertainment, folks.
