The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel adds This Is Us’ Sterling K. Brown
Deadline has brought word that Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) is headed to Amazon Studios for a recurring role on the third season of the acclaimed period comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The 43-year-old actor initially broke the news via Instagram in which he cheekily teased at the audience’s knowledge of the show.
Deadline later reported that Brown, whose character is being developed by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino, will appear in the Emmy-winning series in a three-episode story arc.
Brown is best-known for his roles in the first season of the FX anthology series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, for which he earned his first Emmy win, and a lead role on the acclaimed NBC drama This is Us, for which he earned his second Emmy Award. He has also seen a successful film career in the past couple of years, starring in the 2017 legal-thriller biopic Marshall alongside Chadwick Boseman before reuniting with him on 2018’s Oscar-winning blockbuster Black Panther, as well as Shane Black’s sci-fi sequel The Predator. He will next be heard in the upcoming animated sequels Frozen 2 and The Angry Birds Movie 2.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel from renowned creator Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls) and Executive Producer Daniel Palladino (Family Guy), written and directed by Sherman-Palladino and Palladino, stars Golden Globe winner Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she’s ever wanted — the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent — one that changes her life forever.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stars Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge’s father Abe Weissman, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge’s husband Joel Maisel and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge’s mother Rose Weissman. Zachary Levi (Shazam!) was recently cast in a recurring role in the second season as well.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the winner of two Golden Globes, two Critics’ Choice Awards, a 2018 Peabody Award, a PGA Award, and was nominated by the DGA and Costume Designers’ Guild.
The series was renewed for a third season in May 2018, a few months ahead of its second season debut, and is expected to premiere sometime later this year.
