Emmy Award winner and Grammy nominee Wayne Brady will be appearing on The CW’s Black Lightning in early 2020 in the recurring role of Tyson “Gravedigger” Sykes.
“Gravedigger” is described as “a World War II-era member of the U.S. military who became a ‘super soldier’ after a secret experiment gifted him with enhanced strength, agility, tactical genius, and hand-to-hand combat expertise.” After the war, Sykes defected to the country of Markovia rather than return to a segregated America. His aim to create a sovereign land for metahumans within Markovia sets him on a collision course with the ASA and Black Lightning.
In addition to acting, Wayne Brady is the host of Let’s Make A Deal on CBS and a regular member of the troupe on Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Black Lightning Season 3 airs Mondays at 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
