Charlie Murphy has joined the fourth season cast of Starz’s hit drama series, “Power,” the network announced this morning via Twitter, sharing the above photo featuring star Omari Hardwick and Murphy, who plays a United States Marshal named Williams. That’s all we know of the character at this time.
Murphy joins another new addition to the series’ cast – “Hamilton” star Brandon Victor Dixon (photo below), who signed up to play a recurring role during the upcoming fourth season; a character named Terry Silver, an accomplished attorney who is suspicious of James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) and his criminal activity.
Season 4 will open with “Ghost” behind bars, following his highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox – a crime he did not commit. Ghost can’t outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family’s safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.
From Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp, the “Power” cast is led by Hardwick as drug kingpin and nightclub impresario James “Ghost” St. Patrick; Joseph Sikora, as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays James’ fierce, loyal wife Tasha St. Patrick; and Lela Loren as his first love Assistant U.S. Attorney, Angela Valdes.
“Power” season three was the most-watched Starz original series ever, with a record of 7.1M viewers across all platforms and counting. The #1 original Starz drama also ranked #1 among all weekend cable programs for African American viewers during the 3rd season which ended last summer. Season 4 returns this summer.
