If you needed another reason not to watch The Cape, I have one for you. Child hip hop artist Romeo is joining the cast. Now, I have nothing wrong with rappers as actors. There are some that are very good (Tupac Shakur, Ice Cube, etc) but Romeo is not one. Romeo road his father’s (Master P) coat tails with everything he’s done.
Romeo will play “Lil’ Z,” the “wise cracking” sidekick of Michael Irby’s character “Pokerface,” who was also just added to the show’s line up.
Romeo, who recently took over as head of his father’s No Limit imprint by turning it into an all-digital label, has had roles in a series of hits, including the Nickelodeon series Romeo!, Honey and the upcoming movie Jumping the Broom, which also stars Meagan Goode, Mike Epps, Paula Patton and others.
The Cape is a new drama on NBC that centers around a police officer who turns into a masked hero, after he was framed for a crime that he didn’t commit.
In addition to Romeo and Michael Irby, The Cape stars Martin Klebba, Izabella Miko, Keith David and others.
What really surprises me about this whole thing is that they are still casting for the show. I thought for sure NBC would be ready to pull the plug on this show by now.
