Fresh off the heels of the BET mini-series, “The Book of Negroes,” Aunjanue Ellis who played Aminata Diallo has landed another lead role in the ABC pilot, “Quantico.”    

Ellis will play Miranda, the Director of Quantico FBI training base in Virginia.  She will play opposite Tate Ellington in the drama which revolves around a group of young FBI recruits who battle their way through training amidst a terrorist who will launch a devastating attack on U.S. soil.

Seems like Kerry Washington has started a trend.  Congratulations Aunjanue!
