He’s definitely having a moment and rightfully so!

Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” in the role of N’Jobu, a figure from T’Challa aka Black Panther’s past.

The studio made the announcement just moments ago.

No other details on N’jobu at this time, although Black Panther experts can chime in and enlighten the rest of us on who exactly the character is (a Google search didn’t reveal anything).

Brown recently won an Emmy Award and is Golden Globe-nominated for his portrayal of Christopher Darden in “The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” The veteran stage and screen actor also garnered Screen Actors Guild and NAACP Image award nominations for the role as well as for the critically acclaimed NBC series “This Is Us.”

Directed by Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman in the title role alongside Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba.

The film arrives in theaters on February 16, 2018.
