Mary J. Blige is dusting off her acting chops and returning to the small screen in a huge way, according to reports, the Grammy-winning singer is set to guest star on the upcoming third season of ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder. No further information about Blige’s character or plotline has been released yet, but Viola Davis did reveal that season three features a new mystery “and it’s going to be presented very quickly in the first episode,” so maybe her character kicks off the drama this season.
MJB has been slowly transitioning herself from the Queen of R&B to a triple threat performer with her acting gigs. She recently starred in the The Wiz Live! on NBC, a role that earned her a Critics’ Choice TV Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Movie Made for Television or Limited Series.
