Method Man Set To Join Mary J. Blige On 'Power' Spin Off


The Grammy winning duo of Method Man and Mary J. Blige are reuniting for 50 Cent's 'Power' spinoff show 'Power Book II'.


Having scored the award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group back in 1996 with the iconic Mary J, the Wu-Tang Clan founding member is now joining the Mudbound actress in the cast of Power Book II.


Wire magazine alum Method Man will portray ambitious and savvy attorney Davis Maclean in the Courtney Kemp created series. Conceived as part of the big overall deal Kemp inked with Lionsgate in late 2018, the character is attracted to the NYC underworld run by Oscar nominee Blige’s character, but may find himself entrapped by some secrets from his past.


First officially unveiled at the summer TCA last July, the first of several Power spinoffs is currently in production in New York with a possible launch penciled in for later this year. With some pretty clear indications that some key cast members of Power itself will show up in Power Book II, the spinoff is anticipated to follow the events of the sixth and final season of the Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson executive produced mothershow.


As the question of who shot Omari Hardwick’s lead of Ghost bedevils Power itself, the show will reveal all and conclude on February 9, the same day as the 92nd Academy Awards (Oscars).
