Elijah Kelley from The New Edition Story has signed on for a recurring role on Season two of Fox’s hit music drama Star, reports Deadline.

Kelley will play Andy, a Harvard graduate who has worked all his life to pursue his dreams in the music industry. He’s knowledgeable and driven, but his charisma is what Ayanna Floyd, played by Michael Michele, the CEO of Midtown Sound, relies on to help her put her new label on the map. What she doesn’t know is that Andy’s impressive vocal talents may play a part in accomplishing her goal.

Kelley’s role reunites him with Daniels, Queen Latifah and new Season two series regular Luke James.

Kelley and James worked together on BET’s The New Edition Story. Kelley also played the Scarecrow in NBC’s hit live special, The Wiz Live!, opposite Latifah, Ne-Yo and David Alan Grier.

His recent film credits include the role of Charlie Gaines in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, the voice of Sunny in Disney’s animated Strange Magic, along with Boys of Abu Ghraib and Hairspray.

Season two of Star premieres tonight at 9/8c on Fox.
