Ealy, who currently stars on ABC's series Secrets and Lies (another excellent show!), was considering multiple feature offers for next year and says he was approached directly by his friend Gabrielle Union to consider taking on the role, Deadline reports.

“I had turned down several network offers, as I really was not interested in doing another show at the time, but because Gabrielle is a friend, I told her that I’d seriously think about and talk with my team. At the end of the day, I felt like we all have a social responsibility to help elevate material with people of color in any way that we can, and if there was an opportunity for me to help my friend and the cultural perceptions of our work, then I would do my part.”

As previously posted, MJ (Gabrielle Union) will take on New York City in the new BMJ season which premieres in January.
