Leslie Odom, Jr. Joins ‘Knives Out 2’


The Knives Out 2 cast is just getting better and better. Hamilton and One Night in Miami star Leslie Odom, Jr. has joined the growing ensemble.

Odom, who was nominated for two Oscars for his role and song in One Night in Miami, joins the previously announced Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, and Kathryn Hahn, as well as the returning Daniel Craig as the super sleuth Benoit Blanc.

Netflix acquired the rights to two Knives Out sequels for $468 million with the stipulation that Craig star and the budgets meet or exceed that of the 2019 hit that earned the writer/director Rian Johnson an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

No details on the plot have been revealed, but production is set to start this summer in Greece.
