Never Have I Ever is receiving a Hollywood injection! Deacon Philippe, the 18-year-old son of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, has joined season 3 of the Netflix comedy as a guest character, the streaming giant confirmed Wednesday.
Deacon will play Parker, Devi’s debate team competitor from a well-funded private school. He’s able to glide through debate tournaments to his school’s advantage and is always down to party. As part of the announcement, the first official photos of him in costume were also released.

As he follows in his parent’s footsteps, the part will mark the acting debut of the recent high school graduate. Additionally, Terry Hu (pronouns: they/them) has joined the cast as a guest star, where they will play Addison. Described as “a ridiculously hot non-binary person from the local private school, Addison contributes more than just their outstanding trivia abilities to Devi’s social group.”
Their first significant screen credit is Disney+ Zombies 3, which dropped earlier this month. See them in action on Never Have I Ever below. Late last year, Witherspoon couldn’t help but be a supportive mom when she talked glowingly of her two eldest children, Ava and Deacon, taking part in Beyonce’s Ivy Park ad.
“I thought they were going to pass out,” Witherspoon acknowledged to ET’s Nischelle Turner of their reaction when they were approached to be the stars of the campaign. “They were really excited. They did it jointly. Like Beyonce’s college version, it’s incredibly cute and just like how college students dress!”
Mindy Kaling, the co-creator of Never Have I Ever, is presently working on the Legally Blonde 3 script. As Audra, Kaling has also been on Witherspoon’s Apple TV+ show The Morning Show, as well as on A Wrinkle in Time, where she co-starred with the actress. An episode of The Mindy Project with Witherspoon as a guest star aired in 2017. Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
