Exclusive: Boss Elects Sanaa Lathan For Major Season 2 Role

Kelsey Grammer’s crooked mayor on Boss has a new obsession: Sanaa Lathan.

The Love & Basketball actress is joining the second season of Starz’ political drama in the recurring role of Mona, Alderman Ross’ formidable Chief of Staff with whom Grammer’s Tom Kane becomes fixated on.

Lathan’s TV credits include a regular gig on The Cleveland Show and an arc on Nip/Tuck as the much younger wife of Larry Hagman’s Texas businessman.

Boss‘ second season kicks off later this year.

  • Glad for her! She’s an under-rated actress who deserves to get a good, juicy role.

  • I’ve heard of Sanaa Lathan, but haven’t seen anything she’s been in. Judging from that picture, though, they totally drew her Cleveland Show character to look like her

    • Sanaa Lathan’s films (just a few off the top of my head) Blade (played Wesley Snipes mother), The Wood, The Best Man, Something New, Predator III. Go to IMDB.com to look at her filmography, great actress, underrated for sure.
