Mary J. Blige To Play Cha-Cha In Netflix's Umbrella Academy

As Cha-Cha doesn't appear until the second volume, the pacing of the show may not be similar to the comic.

Netflix's The Umbrella Academy recently started filming and the adaptation gained another big name in Mary J. Blige. The actress is currently nominated for two Academy Awards for Netflix's Mudbound. She'll play Cha-Cha, a ruthless and unorthodox hit-woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets.

In the comic, Cha-Cha doesn't appear until the second volume, which means that the Netflix series will have a different pace than the comic. It's likely that the show will explore both volumes of the comic simultaneously.

The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen PageTom HopperEmmy Raver-LampmanDavid CastanedaRobert SheehanAidan Gallagher, and Blige. The 10-episode drama is set to launch in 2018.
