Blair Pfaff

Played by Andrew Rannells

Blair Pfaff

Blair is a fresh-out-of-Wharton trading prodigy with his choice of any top firm on the street... until a fateful (literal) run-in leaves him with no choice but to work at what he disgustingly calls "Mo's little chop shop." Blair's pure heart will struggle to survive The Jammer Group, from both a metaphoric and a cocaine standpoint. But despite his corn-fed naiveté, Blair is the only one with the balls to stand up to Mo.
