Bad Bunny is set to make his television debut in the final season of Narcos: Mexico, and fans of the reggaeton star are finally getting their first glimpse of the rapper’s acting chops.
In a trailer for the new season of the hit Netflix series (above), Bad Bunny (born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) portrays a gang member named Arturo “Kitty” Paez who, according to an official press release, is part of a group of “rich, well-connected kids from upper society who fell in with the cartel life for the money, drugs, and violence.”
Netflix began teasing the global superstar’s appearance in the show over the weekend, sharing a clip of the rapper in character playing dress-up in his Lacoste polo- and plaid trouser-filled closet, with Los Shain’s cover of The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” (translated to “Los Chicos No Lloran”) providing the soundtrack.
Narcos: Mexico isn’t the only opportunity Bad Bunny is getting to dip his toe into the acting pool. The recording artist is set to appear in two feature films coming next year, including American Sole, alongside Pete Davidson, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Camila Mendes, and Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, and more.
“I always wanted to make movies and act, so it’s a dream come true,” Bad Bunny recently told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m so happy.”
Bad Bunny’s foray into acting comes amid a highly successful time for the rapper’s music career. He took home both Latin and American Grammy Awards this year and in 2020 was named Spotify’s most-streamed artist.
