It is not news that Sterling K. Brown is marvelous, but this latest bit of casting news has seemingly confirmed it.
While This Is Us is on hiatus between its third and fourth season, the award-winning actor has booked himself a role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The series’ main star, Rachel Brosnahan, has previously said that Brown would be her top choice for a guest role, and it appears as though the powers-that-be were listening.
“The Palladinos were kind enough to write something for your boy, and I said yes. So stay tuned. I’m getting together with Midge, and it’s gonna be awesome,” Brown said, announcing the good news.
Never having done stand-up, the 43-year-old is known for being a pretty funny guy (Randall Pearson would be proud) so it is possible that he could play a comic in season three of the Amazon Prime series.
We’re already putting our hands together.
