Chaos and mayhem are about to unfold in the fictional town of Freeland, with Wayne Brady as the catalyst of it all. The Let's Make a Deal host and The Bold and the Beautiful (ex-Reese) star has landed a role on The CW's Black Lightning.

According to TVLine, Brady will play Tyson "Gravedigger" Sykes. Gravedigger is a member of the U.S. military from the World War II era. He became a "super soldier," due to secret experiments giving him superhuman strength, tactical genius, agility and an expert in hand-to-hand combat. Skyes opted to reside in Markovia rather than return to the segregated U.S. Sykes' main purpose is to make a sovereign land for metahumans within Markovia, which leads him into direct conflict with the ASA and Black Lightning (Cress Williams). 

Look for Brady's episodes to first air in 2020. Black Lightning airs Mondays at 9 PM EST on The CW.
