Sanaa Lathan Comes to “Starz”

“Cleveland Show” actress Sanaa Lathan is adding another television show to her acting arsenal. The 40-year old New York native, best known for her work in films like “Something New,” “Brown Sugar,” and “The Best Man,” will next be appearing in the Starz drama “Boss.”

The show, which will be entering its second season this fall, stars Kelsey Grammer as ruthless Chicago Mayor Tom Kane. Sanna will play his straight-laced Chief of Staff, Mona, who Kane also becomes obsessed with.

Sanaa tweeted about her new role today, simply saying “So thrilled about my new job… xo.”

And for those fans hoping to still see the actress on the big screen, never fear, she has just completed work on two major films, “Macbett (The Caribbean Macbeth) ” and “Vipaka .”


  1. I can’t wait to the next season of Boss. One of the best shows on cable tv. I’m soooooo looking forward to Sanaa…I hope it’s excellence…she was good on Nip Tuck…this is good for black actresses!

    Love it!

  2. YAS Cynthia. Sanaa was brilliant on Nip/Tuck and I cannot wait to see her on Boss. I will be watching just for her.
