Singer/actress LeToya Luckett has landed a new acting role.

The original member of Destiny’s Child has been cast on a new HBO series executive produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The half-hour show, “Ballers,” focuses on the lives of both retired and active professional football athletes. Johnson will also star in the show, playing a character named Spencer Strasmore, a retired athlete.

Luckett will portray Tina, a widow to one of the lead character’s closest friends. The Houston-bred talent currently stars on VH1’s “Single Ladies.”
