Recently deceased music and fashion icon Prince was going to appear on Netflix’s Luke Cage, according to ComicBookMovie.com. The idea makes sense for a show steeped in so much much music and musical performances. And it also connects to the shows now famous “swear jar.”

The tidbit was revealed on showrunner Cheo Hodari Cocker’s twitter, “The “Swear Jar” was for Prince. I was going to show him the first two episodes and convince him to play in episode 13″.

Luke Cage follows the street level battle of ex-con Cage as he attempts to clean up the streets of Harlem from the iron grip influence of crime lords Cottonmouth and Diamondback.

The Netflix show stars Mike Colter, Simone Cook, Marshella Ali, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi and Frank Whaley. Ex-music journalist Cheo Hodari Cocker serves as head writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
