The Fosters momma Sherri Saum is entering the world of Power: The actress has joined the cast of the spinoff Power Book II: Ghost, our sister site Deadline reports.

Saum — who has also appeared on Locke & Key and Roswell, New Mexico — will play Paula Matarazzo, the top investigator and right-hand man of the arrogant defense lawyer Davis MacLean (Cliff “Method Man” Smith).
