Beginning in October, former Moesha star Brandy will join the cast of 90210 playing politician Marissa Jackson-Lewis. Sources say B-Rocka will star as “a charismatic young politician running for congress in California against Teddy’s (Trevor Donovan) conservative uncle” a blend between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Weirdly enough, it not clear how believable she’ll be in this role. Although Moesha was a huge hit among young kids, her characters in Cinderella alongside Whitney Houston and Whoopi Goldberg, Double Platinum with R&B diva Diana Ross and the thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer, Brandy hasn’t given audiences many acting skills to praise. Hopefully, she’ll be able to pull it off and show another great set of skills with this one!
The show returns on Sept 13 on The CW. Will you be watching?
