The Power prequel is making a House call: Omar Epps has been cast in Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

While details regarding Epps’ character are being kept under wraps, the actor is said to be playing “a major figure” in the Power universe. As previously reported, this particular offshoot is set in the 1990s, and will chronicle the early years of Kanan Stark, the character first played by executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

In addition to Raising Kanan, three others Power spinoffs are in the works: Power Book II: Ghost, starring singer/actress Mary J. Blige; Power Book IV: Influence, starring Larenz Tate as politician Rashad Tate; and Power Book V: Force, starring Joseph Sikora as Tommy Egan.

Epps, who is best known for his role as House doc Eric Foreman, currently recurs on NBC’s This Is Us.
