Darius, Alfred’s oddly talented right-hand man and musical collaborator, will be played by Lakeith Lee Stanfield. Van, a pragmatist caught in a complicated relationship with Earn on account of their daughter, will be played by Zazie Beetz.
-Donald created the show and wrote the pilot, he will also serve as executive producer.
