Romeo Miller, son of hip-hop legend Master P, has landed a role in the new NBC drama, “The Cape.”
The young rapper/entertainer has signed on to play the roll of Lil Z, a “wise-cracking” gangster accomplice to the character Pokerface, played by actor Michael Irby.
“The Cape” debuted earlier this month, and centers on an ex-cop framed for a wave of crimes committed by the evil Chess, played by True Blood’s James Frain.
Romeo’s character will be introduced on the ninth episode of the show this spring.
“The Cape” airs Monday nights at 9PM EST.
Romeo is a student at USC, and at 21 years old, has a long list of accomplishments. As an actor, he’s appeared in several big screen movies, and TV roles, dating back to 2001. He’s also enjoyed success as a rapper, landing a chart-topping hit for “My Baby” as a young teen.
Most recently, Romeo announced the re-launch of his father’s iconic record label, No Limit Records. Dubbed No Limit Forever, the newly launched label will focus on strictly digital releases.
