Looking back, 2022 has been a colossal year for Netflix, marking the return of heavy hitters like Stranger Things, hit shows like The Gray Man, and the arrival of new favorites like Wednesday. We are now in 2023, and what better than with Kaleidoscope to kick things off?

Created by Eric Garcia, the American heist drama hit the platform on Sunday, January 1, 2023, and invites audiences to dive into a non-linear odyssey.

The series centers on a master thief named Leo Pap (played by Better Call Saul’s Giancarlo Esposito) who assembles a team to attempt a heist that could earn them $7 billion. However, many obstacles stand between them and success.

A host of familiar faces help make the series an engrossing watch, and you might be curious about some of the cast members who appear. Namely, who plays Doctor Wagner in the cast of Kaleidoscope?

“I always arrive prepared”

Richard has previously been interviewed by Smashing Interviews and explained how he approaches his craft:

“I’ve always seen my job first, I show up and do what I’ve been asked to do. I always come prepared. Then, once we figure out what we’re doing together, I don’t argue with directors or other actors about the right or wrong way to do it. I can make suggestions and try something. But it’s not up to me to make that decision while I’m acting.

He continued, “If you don’t make peace with the fact that you can’t control it or you’re going to lose control of it, then you’re going to be miserable. I never intended to be miserable.
