Romeo to Guest Star on NBC’s ‘The Cape’
Romeo is heading back to the small screen by taking a role on the new NBC drama 'The Cape.' Romeo, a student at USC, will play the roll of Lil Z, a "wise-cracking" gangster accomplice to the character Pokerface, played by Michael Irby.
At only 21-years-old, Romeo, son of No Limit Records founder Percy "Master P" Miller, recently announced that he would relaunch his father's label. His other acting credits include the 2003 film 'Honey', and the upcoming movie, 'Jumping the Broom.' Romeo also starred in his self-titled show, which aired on Nickelodeon for three seasons ending in 2006. After ending the show and graduating from high school, the New Orleans native announced that he would be heading to USC to play basketball. He left the Trojan basketball team in May 2010, on his own terms, according to Coach Kevin O'Neill.
Now that he's back on television, Romeo may be able to add more interest to the freshman action drama. After only two episodes, ratings for the 'The Cape' have been less than stellar. The show's two hour premier on Jan. 9, clocked 8.49 million viewers, but fell 30 percent to just over 6 million viewers in its second week. Romeo's character will be introduced on the ninth episode of the show this spring. 'The Cape' airs Monday nights at 9PM EST.
