Emayatzy Corinealdi (Hand of God) has landed a recurring role opposite Dwayne Johnson on the upcoming third season of HBO comedy series Ballers. Corinealdi will play Candace Brewer, a high-powered sports executive who goes toe to toe with Spencer (Johnson). Looking at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players, Ballers stars Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players in sun-soaked Miami. Corinealdi was just cast in CBS drama pilot The Get alongside Brad Garrett. She last was seen in History’s miniseries Roots, starred opposite Don Cheadle and Ewan McGregor in Miles Ahead for Sony Pictures Classics and next will be seen in the final season of Amazon’s original series Hand of God.
