casting call for FOX Empire

Fox’s “Empire”  is written by the team behind “Lee Daniels: The Butler.”   “Empire” tells the story behind Empire Entertainment, a family run music empire.  Terrence Howard plays Lucious, a man who rose through the streets to become a hip hop music mogul. Lucious is at the top of the music business and head of Empire records when he comes to find out that his days at the helm are numbered. Complicating the situation is his ex wife, Cookie, played by Taraji P. Henson.  She is back and looking to claim her piece of the pie.

Hip-hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment, Lucious Lyon, has always ruled unchallenged, but a medical diagnosis predicts he will be incapacitated in three years, which prompts the sharks to circle. Without further damaging his family, he must decide which of his three sons will take over. His favorite, young Hakeem, is a gifted musician but values fame over hard work. Middle son, Jamal, is talented and shy but gay — embarrassing to Lyon. The oldest, Andre, is business-minded but lacks charisma. The reappearance of Cookie, his ex-wife, complicates things; she says he owes her for taking the fall for the drug-running that financed his early career. – IMDB.
