One of Being Mary Jane's leading men is going to having a busy year with more amazing work ahead. Omari Hardwick has signed on to be the star of Power, an upcoming television series on Starz.

The 39-year-old actor will be playing James "Ghost" St. Patrick who makes a living as a successful nightclub owner in NYC, but moonlights as a major drug kingpin. So far we know that the series will be packed with action and drama because things get interesting when Omari's character wants to drop his life as a druglord and live on the straight and narrow. 

Omari will definitely show his range in this series which is executive produced by Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. Until then be sure to get ready for Being Mary Jane premiering in January 2014!
