Rapper Method Man has been added to the cast of the upcoming Power spinoff, which stars Mary J. Blige.
Method Man will portray ambitious and savvy attorney Davis Maclean in Power Book II, according to Deadline.
“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,” the character description from Straz reads per The Wrap.
Power creator Courtney A. Kemp had revealed the plans for the spinoff last year, stating that the show will “continue the journey of some of ‘Power’s’ most controversial characters” in addition to introducing new characters.
We’ve seen Method Man’s stellar acting act work in the popular television series, Power as well as several other movies and television shows. Judging from the lineup, the Power spinoff could even prove to be more popular than the original.
