Mary J. Blige has just landed another role on Netflix.
Mary J., will co-star in “The Umbrella Academy” tv series for the streaming service.
The story follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes known as the Umbrella Academy, as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
Under a one-year deal, Blige will play the series regular role of Cha-Cha, a ruthless and unorthodox hit woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets. Even though she has a few gripes about the bureaucracy of her employers, this job is her life. She is sadistic, sociopathic, and her reputation precedes her. Her true love is torture, and she thinks of herself as a “pain artist.” She really doesn’t care for people—except for her partner Hazel.
The Umbrella Academy TV live action series is based on the popular graphic novels by Gerard Way.
