EMPIRE (FOX) - Kirk "Sticky Fingaz" Jones has scored an arc on the drama as Brikk, "a menacing MC, known for his vicious and biting lyrics.

Destined to be the ancestor of Jor-El (future father of Superman) and Kal-El (the future Superman), Seg-El is the scion of the once-prosperous El family and is blessed with an intuitive brilliance for all things technical. He now is living in Krypton's lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank." (Deadline.com)
MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, THE (Amazon) - Veteran character actor Tzi Ma will recur on the new season as General Onoda, "an intelligent, nuanced and excellent soldier from a working-class background.

He has a history with Trade Minister Tagomi and is depending on his support and connections." (Deadline.com)
RANCH, THE (Netflix) - Wilmer Valderrama will reunite with his "That '70s Show" co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson in a three-episode arc as Umberto, "a former ranch hand at the Iron River Ranch. Umberto is akin to a third Bennett brother, though Colt (Kutcher) and Rooster (Masterson) haven't seen him in years. He recently decided to leave a job at a Montana ranch and move back to Garrison, where he toils at the My Little Pony Ranch." (EW.com)
