"Power's" J.R. Ramirez (@JR8Ramirez) Joins Marvel's Jessica Jones (@JessicaJones) Cast!

All fans of the hit show Power were devastated last night as we all watched J.R. Ramirez’ character, Julio’s untimely death.

Not to worry though, Ramirez will be back on the small screen soon enough as he joins the cast of Netflix series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Netflix and Marvel announced today that the Power actor will be a series regular on the show as Oscar, a single father who is the new superintendent in Jessica’s building. Oscar seems to tread lightly with Jessica as he is not too sure about her powers, while his son is very intrigued by it.

Based on the Marvel Comics character created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the troubled super-powered private investigator. Ritter can next be seen as Jessica Jones on The Defenders, which arrives next month on Netflix.

Producers are happy to have J.R.Ramirez on board with the show. Executive Producer, Melissa Rosenberg is rather enthusiastic about his new role. “J.R. is an incredible addition to our cast, bringing complex and subtle emotion and humor,” Rosenberg says. “He exudes warmth, edge and intelligence, and blends perfectly with our tone.”

We are excited to see J.R. Ramirez transition from the hard core drug dealer we grew to love in Power, to the devoted, protecting single dad in Jessica Jones. We are totally tuned in to see how J.R. will tackle this new cast and excited to feel the energy that he will bring. We will be watching! Jessica Jones season 2 is set to return to Netflix some time in 2018. Stay tuned.

The body of Sadie Roberts-Joseph, 75, was located Friday but it wasn’t immediately clear what led officers to the car. The cause of her death is still unknown, police told the station. The vehicle was about 3 miles from her home, CNN affiliate WAFB reported.
Roberts-Joseph was a renowned advocate in the Baton Rouge area. She founded the Odell S. Williams Now and Then African American Museum in 2001, where she had been hosting the city’s Juneteenth celebration for years. “Ms. Sadie was a tireless advocate of peace in the community,” the police department said in a statement. “Ms. Sadie is a treasure to our community, she will be missed by BRPD and her loss will be felt in the community she served.
She also founded Community Against Drugs and Violence, a non-profit organization focused in creating a safer environment for children in North Baton Rouge. Local politicians, advocates and community members on Saturday mourned Roberts-Joseph’s death.
State Representative C. Denise Marcelle said in a Facebook post that the activist “never bothered anyone” and was looking to expand her museum.
The NAACP Baton Rouge Branch remembered Roberts-Joseph in a Facebook post.
“We lost a Cultural Legend Yesterday! #RIP Sadie Roberts Joseph,” the group wrote. “From reviving Juneteenth, to the Culture preserved at Her Museum, she was a trendsetter and icon in this City.”
Police investigating the activist’s death urged anyone with information about the case to call police detectives at 225-389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP (7867).
This is nothing short of a tragedy and injustice. We truly hope whoever is responsible for her death is found and sentenced appropriately. Let’s all keep her family, friends, and colleagues in our prayers. Rest In Power, Queen!

Comprised of eight close-knit siblings, this funny, witty, daring and clever group must navigate the upper ten thousand’s marriage mart in search of romance, adventure and love.

QUOTE FROM CREATOR CHRIS VAN DUSEN:

“We could not have found a more gifted group of actors to bring Bridgerton to life.  When creating this series, the goal was to turn a very traditional genre on its head and make something fresh, smart, sexy and fun. That’s exactly what this cast embodies and I’m ridiculously excited to see them inhabit these characters and captivate viewers in their own incredibly brilliant ways.”

CAST:

 Phoebe Dynevor bridgerton

PHOEBE DYNEVOR (Younger, Dickensian) will play “DAPHNE BRIDGERTON.”

The picture-perfect young debutante has been waiting her entire life to make her grand debut on the marriage mart.  Poised to be the season of 1813’s forthcoming Incomparable, Daphne’s set to take the town by storm – but not everything goes exactly as planned for this diamond of the first water, especially after she meets a certain Duke.

Rege-Jean Page bridgerton

REGÉ-JEAN PAGE (For The People, Roots) will play “SIMON BASSET.”

Having newly returned to London, the Duke of Hastings finds himself the primary topic of conversation amongst marriage-minded misses and ambitious mamas alike.  Yet, for reasons of his own, our devastating Duke has zero interest in his title, society, or taking a wife.

Golda Rosheuvel bridgerton

GOLDA ROSHEUVEL (Silent Witness, Lady MacBeth) will play “QUEEN CHARLOTTE.”

The veritable tastemaker of London society, Queen Charlotte finds herself living for the sordid gossip that Lady Whistledown prints, though she’d swear she’s above such mundane musings.  It’s only when the ton’s newest gossip writer takes aim at the palace that Queen Charlotte knows she must do something about it.
