Lee Daniels “Empire” Extras Call in Chicago


The new Lee Daniels TV show “Empire” is now casting paid extras

Extras casting directors for the show are seeking male talent that is available to work this coming Saturday.  The show will be filming a scene over the weekend and is in need of Caucasian men to play a camera man, preferably with real life experience.  Please see below for the submission details.

The show will be premiering on FOX later this fall and is still filming scenes for the first season. Lee Daniels (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler”) and Danny Strong (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler”) are back together again, this time working on a TV series. The series will boast an original soundtrack created by Timbaland.

Empire” centers on a family run hip hop music business. FOX describes its new series as a sexy and powerful drama about the inner workings of a Hip Hop record label. The family and the business are under the control of Lucious, played by Terrence Howard, a man with a checkered past who rose from the streets to become a wealthy and powerful music mogul. Lucious is now forced to groom one of his three sons to take over the family business but realizes that none of the three are ready and has doubts as to if they ever will be fully ready to take the helm. Complicating the issue is his ex wife, who took the fall for him years ago and has now come back to get her piece of the pie as well.
