Wiz Khalifa isn’t new to Hollywood, but it has been a while since he has graced the big or small screen. Apple announced that everyone’s favorite stoner will have a recurring role in the first season of the Apple TV+ show Dickinson.
In the upcoming show that stars Hailee Steinfield as Emily Dickinson, the “Black and Yellow” crafter will take on the role of Death. Per a release from Apple, the character is described by Apple as Dickinson’s “muse” in multiple episodes. Wiz was not featured in the show’s first trailer which gave us a first look at the show. In it for some reason has Steinfeld’s portrayal of Dickinson twerking and shouting in the air.
Speaking on the addition of Wiz to the cast, creator and showrunner Alena Smith added in a statement:
“It was a true gift to be able to cast Wiz in this series. We had a creative meeting of the minds in approaching the character, and his playful spirit fit in perfectly with the mischievous tone of the show.”
