  • Rapper-actors Tyga and C.J. Wallace have been cast as series regulars on the drama's upcoming third season. Tyga will play Jamal, Deion's step-brother who has a big heart and an undying loyalty to Deion despite hanging out with a rough crowd. Wallace will play Amir, a good kid whose strict parents expect him to keep clean during high school, stay away from girls and ultimately find his place within the family business. He is a socially awkward savant who dreams of making music one day, an ambition he must stifle and keep to himself. But when events make him the unexpected target of a killer, he finds himself in over his head and his world view challenged. Facing death makes Amir reconsider what he wants for his life and the lengths he's willing to go to find his identity and chase his dreams - should he survive.

She will play the teenage version of Hope, the daughter of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). In the fourth season, the character was 7-years-old and played by Summer Fontana. But the show is plotting a time jump for its new season and required a new actress to play the part.

She will play Mouse, a mysterious figure waging her own private war against the Catholic patriarchy.
