Mary J. Blige To Star In Netflix Series ‘The Umbrella Academy’

Mary J. Blige is set to play a character that we certainly didn’t see coming. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul will be part of the cast of Netflix new show The Umbrella Academy.

A description of MJB’s character Cha-Cha on Shadow & Act reads as follows:

Blige’s role, set as a one-year deal, for now, is described as the following: Cha-Cha is a ruthless and unorthodox hitwoman 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.

Peep the trailer below.
