Kwame Patterson has joined the cast of Rod Lurie’s post-Civil War drama pilot, “Monsters of God.”
According to Deadline, Kwame will play Oatis. He and his family are freed slaves, but they experience limited and conditional independence working for Lancaster as personal servants.
Oatis discovers something awakened inside himself and goes on the hunt for something beyond a small taste of freedom.
Patterson is best known for his role as Monk Metcalf on “The Wire.” He recently played Michael Darden on “American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson” and recurred on “Ray Donovan.”
