- Terrance Howard, as Lucious Lyons
- Taraji P. Hensen, as Cookie
Empire features an award-winning cast and crew. The show’s popularity is due to an incredible cast. Former Hustle & Flow co-stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson re-unite to electrify your living room. Empire Entertainment mogul Lucious Lyon and his ex-wife Cookie, who was recently released from jail for catching a drug case that provided the couple the capital they needed to start their Empire.
There are several Newcomers on the scene such as: Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett, and Bryshere Gray. Guest stars like Cuba Gooding Jr. and Naomi Campbell add to this amazing drama.
Cookie is Queen and she’s come back to “Get what’s hers.”
Cookie realizes that her time in jail has affected her entire world. Empire Entertainment was birthed between her and Lucious in a small garage. Now, the Empire is a multi-million dollar entertainment company.
We can all relate to this scenario because whether we like to admit or not – – Everybody has Issues. Her ex-husband, Lucious is dating Empire’s head of A&R, Anika Calhoun (Grace Gealey). People love classy drama and these two women are both classy and will definitely bring a lot of drama to the scene because they do not get along.
Watch out viewers, there will be some fights in the coming weeks. The first few episodes already spoke volumes about Cookie and Anika’s feelings towards one another.
As I end this post I’d like to say that I was elated when I heard the name “Camilla” (Naomi Campbell) as one of the cast members. After all, that’s my name.
Stay tuned and keep watching Empire on Wednesday Evening at 9 p.m.
