New Castings Out For Empire TV Show 2020 Extras

By | March 11, 2020

The new season of the FOX hit series Empire is casting.

The Empire TV show films in the Chicago area and is now taking submissions from Chicago locals who would like to work as paid TV extras. Chicago’s 4 Star Casting is booking background actors, stand-ins and photo doubles for episodes filming into 2018.

4 Star put out the following message and has setup a new online casting form.

Lee Daniels’ edgy, hip hop music oriented drama is still in production for the 2019 season of the show.  Empire  has been in production since the summer and will most likely be filming new episodes through the 1st quarter of 2018.  The show stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe.

The prime time series calls the FOX Network home and is currently in its 4th season. The show first aired in January 2015 and centers around the Lyons family.  The families patriarch, Lucious Lyons who is played by Terrence Howard, is a hip hop music mogul in the middle of some serious family drama.  Complicating things is a woman named Cookie (Tariji P. Henson) who is his ex-wife as well as a grim medical diagnosis which may soon kill him.

    ok look here.. I don’t care who likes this post or not, but the entire Empire show should have been cancelled after that shady ass shit from a member of the show.. I loved that show but refuse to ever watch it again because of the shady actions of a black man trying to make whites look bad… shame on them! I have dated black girls so i’m far from racist but this went to far and the whole show should be cancelled… fox should be ashamed of this, and he needs more then 3 years jail time for sure.

    I’m excited about new drama and new relationship that are developing between Luscious and Cookie.. illness often brings about a sense of closeness.. New casting can bring about a twist, a monkey in the game and more opportunities for upcoming actors.
