RZA has booked his first series regular role by joining the Fox pilot "Gang Related." The rapper/producer/actor/director/producer will co-star on the series about a gang member (Ramon Rodriguez) who infiltrates the San Fracisco police department and finds his loyalties torn between his old family and his new one, the SFPD's Gang Task Force.
RZA will play Cassius, Ryan's partner and best friend on the Gang Task Force. He decided to become a cop after the object of his affection was gunned down. The community's ambivalence toward her death drives him to seek justice in a world that seems to have stopped caring.
The author, MC and aspiring screenwriter joins a cast that also includes Jay Hernandez, Sung Kang and Inbar Lavi.
