CBMB: ‘This is Us’ Star to Play the Wizard Shazam

By Muuka Muyumba

Emmy nominee and veteran character actor Ron Cephas Jones (Mr. Robot, Luke Cage) has signed on with New Line to play the wizard also named ‘Shazam’ in the upcoming film. Young orphan Billy Batson (Asher Angel) stumbles upon the wizard as he lies in state, waiting for his destined hero to appear. The wizard then bestows the powers of the gods upon Billy after deeming him worthy of defending Earth from the likes of Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong).
