Oscar nominee Odom Jr boards Knives Out 2

Actor also appears in the upcoming “Sopranos” prequel

Oscar nominee Leslie Odom Jr has joined the cast of Netflix’s star-studded “Knives Out” sequel.

The actor, whose other credits include the upcoming “Sopranos” prequel “The Many Saints of Newark”, joins Daniel Craig, Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista and Edward Norton in the Rian Johnson-directed whodunit.

Shooting this summer in Greece, the film hails from a Johnson-penned script.

In a massive $469 million deal, Netflix won the rights for two sequels. The only contingencies of the deal were that Craig must star in the sequels and that each must have at least the budget of the 2019 movie.
