The CW has cast funny man Wayne Brady for several episodes of Black Lightning! According to Variety, Brady will play Tyson Spikes, a World War II veteran who uses the alias “Gravedigger.” Check out more details on this below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP. Black Lightning airs Monday evenings at 8pm Central on The CW!

Gravedigger first appeared in DC’s Men of War #1 in 1977. The first character to assume this mantle was Ulysses Hazard, a WWII enlistee who previously conquered polio as a child and trained his body to reach peak performance. Upon joining the army, he became angered by the military’s segregation practices that relegated him and his fellow black soldiers to menial jobs like digging graves. With this, he went straight to the Pentagon in order to prove himself worthy of combat. The government subsequently made him a one-man unit, codenamed Gravedigger.
