(CNN)Deacon Phillippe is following in the professional footsteps of his parents.

The 18-year-old son on Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe will make his full acting debut in Season 3 of the Netflix comedy series, “Never Have I Ever.”

The teen portrays Parker, “Devi’s debate team rival from a well-funded private school, he’s able to coast through debate tournaments thanks to his school’s advantages and is always down to party,” according to a Netflix press release.
