Look Who’s Joining The Cast Of “Power”
Looks like another familiar face will be joining Starz’s hit show “Power.”
According to several sources, including People, Anika Noni Rose will take on the role of LaVerne ‘Jukebox’ Ganner, a police officer who has a long history with some of the show’s major cast members.
Rose said of the role, “She excited me. I find everything about her delicious. For me as an artist, she is the road less traveled.”
Well, that certainly sounds promising.
The fans will see Rose for the first time on this Sunday’s episode of the show. The role of Ganner required a bit of an adjustment for Rose, particularly when it came to the uniform.
She said the multi-purpose belt was “heavy and the opposite of comfortable. I had a bruise on each hip at the end of shoot days. My little body did not enjoy that belt.”
But the adjustment to working with her new cast members was much more pleasant.
“I loved it,” Rose said of working with Omari Hardwick, 50 Cent, Joseph Sikora, Naturi Naughton and Lela Loren.
“I have done a lot of guest-starring and had a lot of good experiences, but I think between the work, the great crew and the welcoming way the cast I worked with received me, this has been my favorite.”
You can catch her on this week’s episode, this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on Starz.
