Kelsey Grammer's Starz Series "Boss" Returns

Gregg DeGuire/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- The second season of the Starz series Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, premieres Friday night at 9 p.m. Eastern time. Sanaa Lathan joins the cast as the new chief of staff to Grammer’s corrupt Mayor Tom Kane.

Lathan makes it clear that she believes Grammer should have picked up an Emmy nomination for his work on the show, on the heels of his Golden Globe victory early this year.

Lathan, herself once nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in A Raisin in the Sun, says, “When someone is giving a performance like what he is giving it's almost mind-boggling.  I mean, he won the Golden Globe for his performance in the first season and I just can't believe he's not even in the category.  It's weird to me.”

The actress says she will portray Mona Fredricks, a smart, savvy Chicago native who has become an advocate for her community. 

Jonathan Groff, best known for his role as Jesse St. James on Glee, also joins the cast of Boss for season two.
