The FOX series “Empire” is about to begin production of season 2 in the Chicago area and there is a call out for core extras to work on the show throughout the season.
At this time, 4 Star Casting is only seeking adult extras with an upscale club look. General submissions are not yet open, but will be soon, so please only apply if you’ve got the look and live in Chicago. 4 Star will only be considering talent that lives around the Chicago area and all talent MUST have an Illinois State ID.
The show premiered last year and proved to be a huge hit for FOX. Lee Daniels and Danny Strong (Lee Daniels The Butler) have teamed back up for an edgy new drama series. The FOX hip hop music drama, EMPIRE takes viewers behind the scenes and into the drama of a family run music empire. “Empire” stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe.
The edgy series focuses on Lucious Lyon, a Hip-hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment. After a medical diagnosis predicts he will be incapacitated within a few years, he is left finding his replacement at Empire. Lucious must now pick the person that will rule his Empire once he no longer can. While he has 3 sons, he feels none of them can actually fill his shoes successfully. Complicating the matter is the appearance of his ex-wife, Cookie. She took a fall for him years back and now believes he owes her.
