CW is adding another Superhero drama to the network, and we keep getting more casting news constantly. Today, we get more casting news for Black Lightning. Marvin Krondon Jones III has been cast as Tobias Whale, leader of the 100 gang. Krondon has appeared on Harry’s Law, but this is his first big TV role. His role in the first season of Black Lightning is a recurring role. Krondon is a LA rapper from a group called Strong Arm Steady. He has released 5 rap albums, but none since 2013. Hopefully, he’ll land more roles in movies/television after his appearances in Black Lightning.
