There’s a new Hollywood actor in town and his name is Bad Bunny. That’s right, Netflix just announced that the Puerto Rican reggaeton artist is going to have a supporting role in the third season of “Narcos: Mexico”. Yes, we may still be sad over Diego Luna leaving the beloved Netflix franchise, but having Bad Bunny on screen is more than a good enough consolation prize.

Bad Bunny initially teased his involvement with the show when he graced the cover of “Rolling Stone” in May, saying that he would be a “supporting actor” in the upcoming season. Entertainment outlets have now reported that Bad Bunny will play Arturo “Kitty” Paez, a member of the “Narco Junior” gang run by Ramon Arellano Felix (Manuel Masalva). The role is supposed to be a relatively small one.

According to Netflix, the Narco Junior gang is made up of “rich, well connected kids from upper society who fell in with the cartel life for the money, drugs, and violence.” We can totally see Bad Bunny doing this.

The newest season is supposed to set in Mexico of the 1990s when the illegal drug trade started to really globalize. The series will follow “a new generation of Mexican kingpins” who fight for power after Felix Gallardo’s empire “splinters”. Sounds like juicy stuff!

Bad Bunny started shooting his scenes in Mexico right after he joined Shakira and Jennifer Lopez during the Superbowl halftime show in February. But shortly after he arrived in Mexico, production promptly shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. For his part, Bad Bunny didn’t seem so sad about the delay, saying that he “needed the rest” after such an intense year. But thankfully for us, it appears the production finally wrapped and the show is headed for our smalls screens! We can’t wait to see if he’s as talented at acting as he is at music.

Naturally, Bad Bunny fans couldn’t help but stan over the news.

Some people were already huge fans of “Narcos: Mexico” and this casting announcement just cemented their love for the show.

As Netflix probably wanted, the announcement grabbed the attention of people who had never even seen the show before.

Tweets like this prove that this was a smart casting decision.

But other fans were suspicious, having been burnt before by so-called celebrity “cameos”.

This sort of reminds us when they hyped Cardi B’s role in “Hustlers” for weeks and then she only appeared for a few minutes.
