Method Man has been added to Starz’s Power spinoff that’s led by Mary J. Blige. Method Man will portray an ambitious attorney named Davis Maclean, as Deadline reports.

The spinoff deal is a part of Power‘s creator, Courtney Kemp’s overall deal she inked with Lionsgate in 2018.

Method Man’s character is attracted to the Big Apple’s underworld that is run by the Oscar-nominated Blige’s character. However, there are some secrets from Method Man character’s past that may catch up with him.

The first of several Power spinoffs is currently in production in New York City with a possibility of being launched late 2020.

Entitled Power Book II, the spinoff might include appearances by some of the key cast members of Power.

Power Book II is slated to follow the events of the sixth and final season of Power.  Method Man and Mary J. Blige won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group back in 1996.
