XXL Sat Down With The Leads of ‘Power’ On Starz

When the new Starz Original Series, Power, debuts on June 7, hip-hop heads everywhere will be glued to their screens. Executive produced by the hip-hop superstar 50 Cent, the show tells the story of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a big-time New York City drug dealer and club owner, who’s caught up in a dark world and looking to get out and clean up his lifestyle. But there are a few things standing in his way. His wife, Tasha St. Patrick, is happy with all the pleasantries in her life and isn’t interested in Ghost making any changes, even if they are for the better. The same goes for Ghost’s partner-in-crime, Tommy Egan, who likes to live on the wild side. Ghost also has to deal with some drama with his old lover, Angela Valdez, who’s back in the picture, plus his mentor, Kanan, is soon to get out of jail and wants to reclaim the throne. The heat is turned up for Ghost as he tries to figure out a way to not only survive, but come out on top.

We sat down with Omari Hardwick, the actor who plays “Ghost”, and , the devil on Ghosts shoulder, Tommy Egan, to discuss their characters, the world of ‘Power’, and where the show is headed.
