Jesse Williams will be appearing on the final season of Starz’s Power.
He will be Kadeem, the ex of LaKeisha (La La Anthony) and seek revenge for her death. He is also the father of her son, Cash.
Williams, who is only set to appear in one episode, will mourn her death with Tommy (Joseph Sikora). Entertainment Weekly exclusively broke the news of his casting.
The series stars Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora, La La Anthony, Rotimi, Larenz Tate and more.
Starz’s official description reads: Power Season 6 picks up with James “Ghost” St. Patrick seeking vengeance. His former drug partner and brother in arms must pay for the ultimate betrayal. Rocked to his core by the perfidiousness and cruelties of those he once called his family, Ghost devotes himself to one notion: Success is the best revenge, with all intentions of getting both. Ghost aims to get even with Tommy, get the Queens Child Project built to consecrate Raina’s legacy, and finally achieve a thriving legitimate lifestyle with no criminal strings attached. Ghost’s need to wrest satisfaction and happiness from this world by any means necessary is the most danger he’s ever faced. As the Feds grow closer to convicting him, Ghost must remain vigilant toward those wanting to take him down for his past criminal enterprises.
Power is created by Courtney A. Kemp who executive produces with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon.
