An Oscar-nominated actor is lending his voice to Netflix’s action-packed new trailer for “Yasuke”.

LaKeith Stanfield (“Judas and the Black Messiah”) voices the titular character in Netflix’s inbound six-part series. “Yasuke” is inspired by the real-life story of a Black man who reached “samurai” status in 16th-century Japan. In the action-packed trailer, Stanfield’s character is a hopeful ronin tasked with protecting a young child from forces of evil.
