Omari Hardwick will star as the lead character of James “Ghost” St. Patrick in the STARZ original series ‘Power.’  Hardwick plays a powerful New York City drug dealer who is trying to go straight — think Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) in ‘The Wire.’ James Ho of the AJC.com writes:

“Hardwick’s character, James “Ghost” St. Patrick is complex and conflicted. He’s been doing dirty-work drug dealing for years with his childhood friend Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and his supportive wife Tasha (Naturi Naughton). His move into nightclubs, something his dad had done, is a way to perhaps get out of the illegal drug world and find a business that is a bit safer. Tommy and Tasha are skeptical.”

‘Power’ is executive produced by rapper/actor/entrepreneur Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, who also performs the theme song.

The original series debuts on the STARZ network tonight at 9 .p.m. EST.
