RJ Cyler Joins "Black Lightning" Season 2

Young Actor RJ Cyler, has just booked a role in season two of CW's "Black Lighting."

According to Shadow & Act, RJ Cyler will play Todd Green, the gangly and awkward tech genius who’s passed over for a research grant. He doesn’t take it well, until he gets an offer to join Tobias Whale (series star MarvinKrondon Jones III).

This is big for Cyler, as with the recent cancellation of Luke Cage, Black Lighting is the only black superhero on television today. Being on a show like this is a great opportunity for Cyler.

Black Lightning airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
