Warning: Slight spoilers for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 3 are ahead.
Susie might have some competition in the best manager department. One of the new additions to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 3 is Sterling K. Brown who plays Shy Baldwin’s manager Reggie. From the moment you meet him in episode 2, it’s clear Reggie is willing to do whatever it takes to help his musician client get ahead.
Reggie is no-nonsense, which might not fare well for Susie (Alex Borstein) and Midge (Rachel Brosnahan), who is heading out on tour as Shy’s opening act. Not Reggie’s choice, mind you. These two ladies are definitely prone to shenanigans and Reggie isn’t particularly interested in that. “So, you going to be something happy in my life or something unhappy in my life?” Reggie asks in his first sit-down with Susie.
It’s then we learn that Lou, who introduced himself to Susie as Shy’s manager in the season 3 premiere, is just the “white guy record labels are willing to deal with,” according to Reggie. Brown is aware how little diversity the series saw before season 3.
“He’s black, which I think is really cool,” Brown told Entertainment Tonight when asked about Reggie back in September. “Maisel doesn’t tend to get black that often, but when Brown shows up, it gets real Afro-American, which makes me happy!”
