Get cast in a small role on “Empire”

If you are looking for information on how to get cast on “Empire”…. here you go.

Empire” is filming new episodes for season 4 this month and there is a new casting call for Chicagoland locals who would like to be cast as extras / featured extras on the show.

Empire” returned to production this past summer in Chicago and the show’s extras casting directors at Chicago’s 4 Star casting are ONLY interested in talent that lives in and around the Chicago area.

Lee Daniels’ edgy, hip hop music oriented drama is back.   “Empire” has returned to production in Chicago and is currently only interested in talent that is local to the Chicago area. Production on the show began in July and “Empire” will continue filming in the area through the spring of of 2019.

The series stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe.   ”Empire” focuses on self made music mogul Lucious Lyon,  played by Terrence Howard, his music label, Empire Entertainment and the family drama over who gets to control the company.

Empire” premiered on January 7th 2015 – 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
