Power Book IV: Force has confirmed that Prison Break star Anthony Fleming and Chicago PD’s Lucien Cambric will be joining the upcoming Tommy Egan spin-off.
The actors are among a host of famous faces set to join the Starz show, and thanks to some character descriptions, we now have a rough idea of how the series will shape up.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Fleming will play a character called JP, a talented jazz musician whose “world is thrown off its axis when he crosses paths with Tommy”. Meanwhile, Cambric will play D-Mac, who “looks to Tommy as he hits a crossroads in his life that can completely upend his future”.
As for the other new additions to the cast, Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy) will play Walter Flynn, the head of Chicago’s Irish crime family; Isaac Keys (The Oath) will join as “gentle giant” Diamond; and Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan) will play Claud, the only daughter of Chicago’s largest kingpin.
Also joining the cast is Gabrielle Ryan (The Haves and the Have Nots) as former marine Gloria; Shane Harper (A Teacher) as Vic, the heir apparent to Chicago’s largest crime family; and Kris D Lofton (Ballers) as Jenard, Diamond’s younger brother who gave up his Ivy League education to take control of one of Chicago’s largest crews.
