Here’s a bit of random news we can get behind. Charlie Murphy will be appearing in the new season of Starz’s hit drama Power

EW shared a pic of Charlie Murphy and series star Omari Hardwick aka “Ghost” on set. It looks like Murphy will be portraying a United States Marshall taking custody of a handcuffed Ghost.

SPOILERS AHEAD, if you didn’t watch last season.

EW has learned exclusively that Charlie Murphy, best known for his work in Meet the Blacks, Chappelle’s Show, and oh, being related to Eddie Murphy, will join the fourth season of Power on Starz.

Murphy will play Marshal Williams opposite James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), a wealthy nightclub owner-cum-drug lord who will start season 4 behind bars. Power, which is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Courtney A. Kemp (The Good Wife) returns this summer on the heels of Ghost’s highly publicized arrest for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox — a crime he did not commit. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes.

Power, which was renewed for a fourth and fifth season, returns later this year.
