In mid-March, Young announced his casting in the upcoming Wu-Tang Clan project.
Earlier this year, details surfaced on the upcoming “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” series.
The streaming giant—whose stakeholders include such giants as Comcast and The Walt Disney Company—has announced the cast for its forthcoming drama Wu-Tang: An American Saga. The ten-episode drama series, set in the early ’90s, will trace the history of New York City’s beloved Wu-Tang Clan, one of the most successful and influential hip-hop groups of all time. The cast for the show, announced Tuesday, includes Moonlight‘s Ashton Sanders as RZA, the group’s architect. Other actors include Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse actor Shameik Moore; Power‘s Marcus Callender; and Get Out co-star Erika Alexander. (Fortune)
