Method Man (The Deuce, Garden State) has joined the cast of the STARZ Original Series Power Book II: Ghost as the sharp, highly motivated attorney Davis Maclean. Brilliant, ethically challenged, and with a few secrets of his own, Davis is drawn into our world on multiple axes, a world riddled with murder and drugs, where the only thing he’s really addicted to is winning.
Method Man is a Grammy Award-winning rap star, and a member of the super rap group Wu-Tang Clan. He will join Grammy winner and Oscar nominated megastar Mary J. Blige (Mudbound, The Umbrella Academy) in the series.
Today at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming for Starz, along with Power executive producers Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, announced Grammy winner and Oscar nominated megastar Mary J. Blige (Mudbound, The Umbrella Academy) is joining the cast of the first Power sequel, Power Book II: Ghost.
“We have alluded previously to various spin-offs, prequels and other expansions of the ‘Power’ Universe,” Power executive producers Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson said previously. “We are pleased to announce that we are in pre-production on the first of what we know will be a collection of series inspired by the dynamic world of ‘Power.’ ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ will continue the journey of some of ‘Power’s’ most controversial characters. Joining the cast of the new series and the ‘Power’ family, please welcome world-renowned recording artist and Oscar nominee Mary J. Blige.”
Blige signed an exclusive first-look television deal with Lionsgate in June 2019 to develop and produce television series under her newly-launched Blue Butterfly productions. The multifaceted singer-songwriter-actress will also have the opportunity to create content across Lionsgate’s array of business platforms.
