Handsome actor Trai Byers, 31, plays Lucious Lyon’s oldest son, Andre Lyon, who despite his tendencies to get more than a little crazy at time, sure knows how to hold our attention.
Byers can bring us flowers any time. That’s one smooth brother. Hello, gorgeous!
Midwesterners, stand up! Byers is representing you right. He was born in Kansas City, Kansas. (Aren’t you happy he followed the yellow brick road right to Hollywood?) He’s a natural star!
From his chiseled chin to his silky smooth skin, we’re totally smitten’ with all things Byers.
Seasoned actor Terrence Howard expertly transformed into Lucious Lyon. Calling his performance captivating would be an absolute understatement.
Howard knows his pose!
Howard has a history of brining a steamy intensity to each of his roles, and when he does, fans can’t help but take notice.
Actor Derek Luke is no stranger to our crush list. He’s the epitome of hot chocolate and he never (ever) disappoints onscreen.
Click that “like” button if you agree that Luke is right at home as an addition to this red-hot cast.
Luke makes 40 look like the new 25. From Antwone Fisher to now, it’s clear that the actor is aging like fine wine.
Actor Malik Yoba helps to round out this hunky group of leading man, offering his signature low-key sex appeal and seasoned acting chops one episode after another.
He may not have the heftiest lines, but Yoba’s performance as Lucious’ right hand man Vernon Turner on EMPIRE is still not to be missed.
Hot chocolate alert: We see you Mr. Yoba! (Wink!)
Smollett as middle son Jamal Lyon on EMPIRE has immediately became the ultimate scene stealer.
Smollett sweet falsetto is absolutely mesmerizing. Wouldn’t you agree?
Smollett is synonymous to smoldering on this smash hit show.
Bryshere Gray stars as rapper Hakeem Lyon on EMPIRE. Um, hello arms!
Of course the cast would not be complete without a PYT like Gray.
EMPIRE‘s youngest resident cutie, even walks the runway with style.
Gray hails from Philly, and we’re sure his hometown is bursting with pride with all the budding musician has accomplished as one of the breakout stars on EMPIRE.
