‘It’s About to Get Juicy’: ‘Power’ Announces this Surprising Guest Star on Upcoming Episode, and Fans Are Thrilled

Looks like someone is swapping their scrubs for a gold chain.

By someone, I mean Jesse Williams. Entertainment Weekly reports the “Grey’s Anatomy” star will be playing in an upcoming episode of “Power,” where he’ll take on the role of Kadeem, Lakeisha Grant’s ex and father of her son Cash. 

The character of Grant, played by La La Anthony, was killed in the previous episode by Tasha St. Patrick, played by Naturi Naughton.

A sneak peek of Williams’ episode has already been released, where his character can be seen talking to Tommy — played by Joseph Sikora — about avenging Lakeisha’s death.

“So what’s up? We got no idea who did this sh– or what?” Kadeem asks Tommy, who was going to propose to Lakeisha before she was killed.

“I ain’t sure,” Tommy responds. “But I promise you I’m going to find out who did this sh*t and I’ma make it right.”

Williams will only appear in one episode of the crime drama, but that didn’t stop people from expressing glee on Instagram.

“About to get juicy! 💃🏽” someone wrote.

“Yasss!! I’m here for it!!!” another person commented.

And one woman let it be known just how much she likes the “Grey’s Anatomy” star.

“I don’t think this man knows we’re actually supposed to be together,” that person wrote.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Williams recently scored a recurring role on Hulu’s upcoming limited series “Little Fires Everywhere,” also starring Kerry Washington.

The series follows the lives of the Richardson family, and Deadline describes the story as one that “explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood — and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.”

Williams will play a rich Wall Street worker named Joe Ryan in the limited series. And he’ll be on ‘Power” on Sunday, Oct. 27.
