The good times keep rolling for Sterling K. Brown. The breakout star from NBC's hit drama "This is Us" and Golden Globe nominee for his role in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' is now jumping to the big screen. Brown joins the Marvel cinematic universe as the latest cast member in "The Black Panther."

Brown has been cast in the role of N’Jobu, a figure from the Black Panther’s past.

Sterling K. Brown is a little sensitive to his roles being cut out of appearances after getting burned a couple of times, even by Jimmy.

Directed by Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station,” “Creed”), “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.

Brown, who has already won an Emmy for his role in the "People v. O.J." tweeted his excitement at joining the production.

The film arrives in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
