Sterling K. Brown won us over as Randall Pearson in NBC drama This Is Us, and he’s currently getting ready to show off his comedic chops. The Golden Globe winner has been cast in the upcoming season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Brown broke the marvelous news on his own, by posting a cheeky video on Twitter, where he said the following:
“I’m going to do a little TV show, maybe you’ve heard of it: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The Palladinos were kind enough to write a little something for your boy, and I said yes. So, stay tuned. I’m getting together with Midge and it’s going to be awesome.”
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is set in the late ‘50s, and it tells the story of an upper-middle-class housewife who discovers her talent for stand-up comedy, after splitting with her husband. It was met with critical acclaim and won a total of three Golden Globes and three Emmys.
