Mo’Nique will bring swagger to season 2 of Starz drama BMF.

The Oscar-winning actress has joined the cast of the hit series as a recurring character named Goldie.

In a press release Tuesday, Starz described Goldie as “a sophisticated Atlanta strip club owner with swagger and street smarts.”

BMFshort for “Black Mafia Family” — is inspired by the true story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory. The two siblings from inner-city Detroit joined forces as teenagers in the 1980s, to create one of the most prominent drug trafficking organizations in the U.S.

The new season will find Goldie teaming up with the Flenory brothers as they expand their drug business from Detroit to Atlanta. “A fierce protector of her dancers and the people in her world, Goldie isn’t afraid to take care of business, no matter what the cost,” per Starz.

50 Cent shared video of Mo’Nique in character on Instagram, along with his usual bravado.

“Guess who I got in BMF this season. GOLDIE! I don’t miss. The underdog’s back on top,” he captioned the post. Mo’Nique added in the video: “My name is Goldie. You know who the f–k I am.”

50 Cent has been giving Mo’Nique props on social media, and in March he said it was time for her to return to the “top” after a fall from grace and lengthy absence from TV and movies.

She now joins returning BMF cast members Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr.; Da’Vinchi; Russell Hornsby; Michole Briana White; Myles Truitt and Steve Harris. Snoop Dogg; Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight; and Serayah have recurring roles on the series.

As previously reported, the sophomore season will also feature Leslie Jones, Kelly Hu, Christine Horn, and La La Anthony, who was upped to a series regular.

At a wrap party for season 1, BMF creator Randy Huggins told Urban Hollywood 411 the sophomore season would be bigger and “way better.”

Now with the addition of Mo’Nique, Leslie Jones, Kelly Hu, and Christine Horn, it looks like Huggins will deliver on that promise.
