Power” alum Sinqua Walls is set to star in BET’s forthcoming drama series, “American Soul.”

The 33-year-old actor will star as a young Don Cornelius in the 10-episode series that is inspired by the “personal trials and professional successes of the young, ambitious and troubled impresario Cornelius.”

Via Deadline:

The drama series is described as an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his “Soul Train” dancers, crew and musicians in an unforgiving Hollywood in the 1970’s – how they work, play, rise and fall against the backdrop of “Soul Train” — “the hippest trip in America” and one of the most predominant television shows for African American culture.

This is a great look for Sinqua and I’m sure he’ll do a great job!
