Disney+ Star Charlie Bushnell Q×A

By: Ally Brewster

Charlie Bushnell is an up-and-coming actor that stars as Bobby Cañero-Reed in the Disney+ original series Diary of a Future President. The Disney+ original series produced by Gina Rodriguez’s production company I Can and I Will Productions is told through creator and producer Elena’s narration as written in her diary. The series follows the daily events of Elena’s life and her interactions with friends and family. She lives with her older brother, Bobby (portrayed by Charlie); and mother, Gabi. Elena has a strong desire to become a president of the United States, which is made visible through flash-forwards to her political campaign as an adult. All 10 episodes of the highly-anticipated Second Season is available on Disney+ to watch now.

We had the opportunity to ask Charlie about acting on the show and balancing his acting life with his personal, high school life:

You decided that you wanted to act while binging Stranger Things. What about the tv show inspired you to start acting? What other television and TV shows do you look to for inspiration?

Yeah! Stranger Things created such an extraordinary world, and I just fell in love with everything about it – the characters, the story, etc.… It was so unique, and I’d never seen anything like it before. All the main characters are kids around my age, so I could really relate to them. For some reason, even though I had never thought about it before, it just hit me that I could do that too… and now I’m here! It’s been a pretty wild ride so far, and I appreciate every minute of it. Another one of my all-time favorite shows is The Office.

Has it been difficult to balance high school and acting? How do you deal with the busy schedule and still maintain the activities you’ve previously enjoyed?

It can definitely be a lot, but I make it a priority to always create time for myself and relax, even when life is crazy busy. When we filmed season 2, it was during the school year, and as students, we had to do at least 3 hours of school a day on set, so we basically had no breaks besides lunch, lol. When we weren’t filming, we were doing school, and when we weren’t doing school, we were filming. But I LOVE what I do, and even though it can be quite stressful at times, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What has been your favorite part of acting in Diary of a Future President?

I literally cannot think of one negative thing or experience I’ve had while working on this show, so every part is my favorite part, haha… but if I had to choose, definitely the people. I have made some life-long friends on this show. We all get along so well and always have an absolute blast together on set. I love my Diary family so much! ❤️

Where do you hope your character Bobby Cañero-Reed goes in this next season? Can you give any teasers for what’s next for him in the new season?

In season 2, Bobby is in high school and has everything all planned out. He’s looking forward to joining the varsity tennis team and getting closer to Liam; however, things don’t exactly go as planned. As expected, after entering high school, Bobby’s world really opens up, and he meets a lot of really cool new people.

Diary of a Future President is one of your biggest roles. Has it taught you anything new about acting and the business? What have you taken away from the experience?

Well, Bobby is really my only role (so far), haha… But yes! I have learned so much while working on this show. As an actor, watching pros like Gina Rodriguez, Selenis Leyva, Michael Weaver, Jessica Marie Garcia, and others just do their thing is like the ultimate master class in acting. Everyone on this show is so incredibly talented; it’s insane. But I’ve also learned so much about the filmmaking process as a whole and just how much goes into it. When you watch the final product of a movie or show, you really only see the actor. Still, something I’ve really opened my eyes to while working on this show is that literally every single person in the cast and on the crew – from the lighting department to the camera operators to HMU to wardrobe, etc.… plays such a crucial part in the making of a TV show or movie. It would not be possible without every single one of them—huge shoutout to our Diary crew. You guys are the best! ❤️

He’s All That (Music from the Netflix Film)

HE’S ALL THAT (MUSIC FROM THE NETFLIX FILM) SET FOR AUGUST 27 RELEASE VIA ASTRALWERKS

Listen To Cyn’s Cover Of Sixpence None The Richer’s Kiss Me HERE

Film Released Globally On Netflix On August 27

Astralwerks will release He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) on August 27, the day of the film’s global release on Netflix. The 16-track compilation features Cyn’s cover of Sixpence None the Richer’s global hit Kiss Me, which is heard in the trailer. Check out Cyn’s sparkling version of Kiss Me HERE. View the trailer, which debuted on TikTok earlier today, HERE.

In this remake of the 1999 teen classic She’s All That, an influencer specializing in makeovers bets she can transform an unpopular classmate into prom king. Sixpence None the Richer’s original version of Kiss Me was heard in She’s All That. The song received a GRAMMY nomination and placed in the top 10 of the Billboard 100 for the year.

Of course, there are many songs that have influenced my career, but of all the songs in the universe, ‘Kiss Me’ has to be one of my absolute favorites, says Cyn. I have many fond memories of discovering my voice to ‘Kiss Me’ while riding in the backseat of my mom’s car. When I was approached with the opportunity to sing this song, I was ecstatic and so grateful. I am thrilled with how it turned out and can’t wait to see it in He’s All That.

Cyn released her debut EP, Mood Swings, in 2019 via Katy Perry’s Unsub Records. Her songs have been widely licensed, including placements in soundtracks for Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You and the Oscar-winning film Promising Young Woman.

He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) also includes new songs from Blu de Tiger (Go Bad), Valentino Khan ft. ALMA (Stop Talkin’) and Kaz Gamble and Doug Ray (Mean Streets of Pali).

Carried Away, the sweeping hit ballad from Surf Mesa with Madison Beer, features prominently in the film. Both the original song and the Tchami remix of Carried Away are found on the soundtrack along with recent hits from Katy Perry, Topic, Bebe Rexha, ATB, A7S, Fisher, Troye Sivan, Kacey Musgraves, Mark Ronson, Emilee, Tesher, TCTS, Glowie and WizTheMC. See below for track listing. Fans who pre-order/pre-save He’s All That (Music From The Netflix Film) HERE will instantly receive Kiss Me plus Kiss Me (Remix).

In this reimagining of 1999’s She’s All That, Padgett (TikTok star Addison Rae) has mastered her perfect high school life: She’s a popular beauty influencer with a huge following, and her hot pop star boyfriend makes her the envy of everyone on her feed. But after she catches him cheating while livestreaming, she goes viral for all the wrong reasons. To repair her reputation, Padgett makes a risky bet that she can turn her scruffy anti-social classmate Cameron (Cobra Kai’s Tanner Buchanan) into prom king material. Things get complicated when she finds herself falling for him IRL, and learning no one is quite who they seem on social media, least of all herself.

The Twenty-Date Origen Tour Coincides With Hispanic Heritage Month In September & October – With General Public Tickets On Sale This Friday July 16 at 10am Local time

[His concerts] confirms Juanes as the rare artist — in company with the likes of Bruce Springsteen— with the power to inspire…  Juanes’ ‘Origin’ is born from the love and influence of his idols… a daring rock production, achieving very personal versions without abandoning his essence.  – Los Angeles Times

if you’ve listened to Juanes, you know that he has strived for (and undoubtedly reached) a new level of musicianship… Whatever you do, don’t miss the chance to check Juanes out when he comes your way – ABC News

Today Latin rock icon and multiple Grammy & Latin Grammy award-winning artist Juanes announced his 2021 U.S. ORIGEN TOUR – an up close & immersive journey through all the greatest hits of his past, combined with the first live performances of the songs from his recently released & critically praised ORIGEN album & documentary.

Hailed as a Masterpiece by Rolling Stone, ORIGEN finds Juanes returning to his earliest roots in order to share a scintillating collection that reimagines some of the most important songs and artists that shaped his own early musical vision.

This project is built upon a love of music instilled by my family, appreciation of my culture, and the discovery of the songs and artists that first completely stirred my soul.  ‘These are the songs that reside deep in my heart and continue to be a map to which I constantly return to remember who I am, where I come from, and where I am going. These songs were all recorded live, with the intention from the very beginning of performing them in a very special concert setting. Now, as we are able to start coming together again, I am incredibly excited to bring the intimacy and strong guitar driven energy of these songs directly to fans across the United States. – Juanes

In ‘Origen’, Juanes delivers a masterpiece… an analog… honest and exquisite album… his vulnerability and determination translate into genius and brilliance. Juanes has a spot among the legends. He walks among the greatest to give us one of the best tribute records in the history of Latin music – Diego Ortiz,  Rolling Stone Cover Q&A

From Springsteen to Juan Luis Guerra, the Colombian rocker covers the soundtrack of his life, his way. Ranging from Mexican icon Juan Gabriel’s ‘No Tengo Dinero’ to Carlos Gardel’s ‘Volver’… done in vintage (yet subversive) style…the music is entirely Juanes’ own and everything sounds live. – Leila Cobo, Billboard

Juanes returns to his roots with ‘Origen,’ a covers album in which he pays tribute to the most influential artists in his life and career The album encompasses styles as diverse as tango, merengue, heavy metal, folk, reggae, vallenato, pop and, of course, rock. It includes the singles “El Amor Después Del Amor” in a rock and gospel version, and Springsteen’s classic ‘Dancing In The Dark’ in a slower folk style and in Spanish. – Sigal Ratner,  AP

New Music Recommendations: Everybody knows Juanes… and now we can rediscover Juanes again. His new album is called ‘Origen.’ And it’s a collection of songs of artists that have influenced him. And the discovery is how vast his influences are, from Bob Marley to Carlos Gardel, the legendary tango artist from Argentina, Juan Luis Guerra from the Dominican Republic, the Mexican diva Juan Gabriel and, yes, Bruce Springsteen… with a really interesting sort of remix of The Boss. There’s [also] a great documentary on Amazon Prime on the making of the album, talking about all those influences – Felix Contreras, NPR Music

Rarin – Toxic Ends

RARIN Releases Debut Mixtape Toxic Ends

PRESS HERE to Listen

Rarin finds his balance in Toxic Ends – HipHopDX

Rarin manages to blend elements of rap and pop music into his unique style of hip-hop – Elevator

If you’re a fan of the younger generation of pop-rap acts such as The Kid Laroi, Post Malone, Bankrol Hayden, and Yung Pinch,  [Rarin] will catch your attention and stay in your head for some time – Lyrical Lemonade

Fast-rising artist Rarin has released his liberating, pop-rap debut mixtape Toxic Ends. PRESS HERE to listen. An aspirational, ambition-fueled introduction which champions human connection and self-growth, inspiring listeners to be themselves free of insecurity, Toxic Ends unites Rarin’s recent string of hard-hitting singles and adds six new tracks to his prolific catalogue including title track Toxic Ends which arrived alongside a high-octane video. PRESS HERE to watch.

Featuring previously released singles Toxic Ends, Big Spendin’ and SO WHAT! ft. Brxkenbxy, which are quickly adding to his over 75 million global streams, Toxic Ends welcomes new songs Love Fix, Ashes, Had Enough, Skipping Stones, Cash Out ft. Darius King, and 2 Seater. Full track list below.

I think we’re all destined for something greater than our expectations. We just have to let go of what’s holding us back, says Rarin on the inspiration for the mixtape. This project is mainly about letting go of our ‘toxic ends.’ People are tempted to commit themselves to things they cannot obtain, especially in relationships, leading their emotions to consume them. Just because you want something, doesn’t mean you need it.

Adding to his hot streak, and distilling rap, pop, and relatable storytelling into his own unique sound, Toxic Ends imagines what life would be like if we let go of the negative thoughts that hold us back while flex anthem Big Spendin’ turns conventional hip-hop on its head to imagine what Rarin could achieve as the best version of himself, free of heartbreak, self-consciousness, and hardship. Setting the tone for the mixtape and cementing Rarin as one to watch, lead single SO WHAT! ft. Brxkenbxy speaks to brushing off minor issues to find value in mistakes without letting them derail you from seizing big opportunities. Originally recording music for fun and continuing to create in his bedroom despite his success, Rarin’s Toxic Ends follows on the heels of his string of viral singles including GTA and YESSIR! which topped Spotify’s viral charts and trended on YouTube.

Impacted by the sudden loss of rapper Lil Peep and the realization that his own music is also a coping mechanism for many, Rarin puts human connection at the forefront of his art to guide his fans through their own emotional turmoil while processing his own world and sifting through the toxicity that often prevents us from being our best selves. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Lil Peep as well as Travis Scott and Billie Eilish, Rarin’s singles have already received explosive support online, particularly amongst gaming communities such as Fortnite, to soundtrack thousands of videos and feature in large collaborations with creators such as Faze Sway, Faze Martoz, and more.

Toxic Ends tracklist:

  1. Toxic Ends
  2. Love Fix
  3. Ashes
  4. Had Enough
  5. SO WHAT! ft. Brxkenbxy
  6. Skipping Stones
  7. Cash Out ft. Darius King
  8. 2 Seater
  9. Big Spendin’
