Casting News - January 21, 2019

The CW's Black Lightning.

  • Hosea Chanchez has been cast in a recurring role on the drama's second season. He previously starred for nine seasons in The CW and BET comedy The Game. He has also starred in the BET films Let the Church Say Amen and Fanatic.
  • He will play Marcus Bishop, a secret SA operative in league with Dr. Helga Jace (Jennifer Riker). Codenamed Shakedown, he possesses the ability to generate vibrations and frequencies at will. Irreverent, bitter and impulsively violent, this ex-Air Force officer killed his superior officer when he was passed over for promotion because of a poor performance review. At Fort Leavenworth, he signed with Dr. Jace and embraced his role with the ASA, taking great pleasure in producing a high body count on his covert missions.
