Gibbs will portray Cousin Buddy, a crazy yet unpredictable, hustling kingpin from Gary, Ind. (his real-life hometown) who—in spite of being a wild card—is loyal and dependable.
Fans have already been praising his role on Bust Down which follows four casino employees living dead-end lives with dead-end jobs in Gary, Ind., and the massive mess they manage to make out of it.
The comedy is rooted in escapism as a means for people to “take your entire mind off of the timeline and sink into some Black absurdity.” All six episodes are streaming on Peacock.
Power Book IV: Force airs on Sundays on STARZ.
