Bad Bunny Makes Acting Debut
Benito Martinez Ocasio, known as Bad Bunny, is stepping down from the stage for a minute. In more exciting news, he will be starring in the final season of Narcos: Mexico
Of course, besides being a superfan of the show, Martinez Ocasio will make his acting debut. He is set to star as rich-kid-turned-hitman Arturo “Kitty” Paez.
“Everybody under 30 in the office lost their s**t,” showrunner Carlo Bernard says of the moment the casting team revealed that Bad Bunny wanted to be on the show. “I was like, ‘Oh, I should probably pay more attention to this!’ He put himself on tape and — to no surprise — he’s very watchable, and you’re innately drawn to him.”
The show will give a look into the gang of Ramon Arellano Felix’s (Manuel Masalva) “Narcos Juniors”, affluent members who have fallen to the hands of the cartel life for money, drugs, and violence.
New faces will be joining this season finally as well. Diego Luna exited the show after two seasons. Meanwhile, actor Wagner Moura who played Pablo Escobar in the original series Narcos is not only returning but will be working behind the scenes to direct two episodes.
The Puerto Rico native went on Twitter and made the announcement of his appearance by retweeting the trailer.
