Another A-list name has been added to the hot guest-star lineup for FOX’s breakout hit, “Empire.”
E! News is reporting that Jennifer Hudson will be appearing alongside Cookie and Lucious sometime before the end of this season. Her role hasn’t been announced yet, but it is rumored that the singer-turned-actress will be playing herself. Fifty Shades of Grey actress Rita Ora has also reportedly signed on as a guest star.
More than 10 million viewers tune into the Lee Daniels-produced drama each week, making it one of the biggest shows on network television. The show has attracted big names; Snoop Dogg, Naomi Campbell, Gladys Knight, Fabolous, Anthony Hamilton and Cuba Gooding, Jr. are all rumored to make guest appearances.
And with that, “Empire’s” empire keeps on growing.
