Brandy Joins ‘Star’ Cast
Brandy is returning to television for a multi-episodic arc on Fox’s music drama Star, the network announced Friday. The Wanna Be Down singer will reportedly play Charlotta Brown’s (Queen Latifah) younger sister, Cassie. Fox also announced the addition of Patti Labelle, who will be playing their mother, Christine. Episodes featuring the two music veterans are set to start airing next spring when the series returns from its extended winter hiatus.
Brandy’s last television appearance was in her own short-lived comedy Zoe Ever After, which BET quietly canceled after one season. Since then she’s made a return to Broadway playing Roxie Hart in Chicago and released a few promotional singles. She’s also rumored to be making a cameo appearance in the upcoming independent film Humantics: The Rich List.
