Great casting new today out of the hit hip-hop sudser, Empire!  EW.com is reporting that Vivica A. Fox has joined the cast for the second season, and will play Taraji P. Henson’s (Cookie) on-screen older sister! The character will come on to the canvas in search of her younger sis for reasons that are unknown.  

Empire EP Ilene Chaiken noted on the arrival of Vivica A. Fox, “We’ve already met Cookie’s sister Carol (Tasha Smith), but Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least.”

Look for Vivica to make her on-screen debut in her new TV role around the 8th episode of the new season. Empire returns on Wednesday night September 23rd at 9PMET.

As previously noted, Empire creator Lee Daniels has already expressed an interest in a spin-off about Cookie’s family.  Could this be a test run for that featuring the oh-so-talented Vivica A. Fox?  Stay tuned.

Daytime soap fans remember Fox from her roles on Generations, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and so many primetime and motion picture roles including: Kill Bill.

Do you think the casting of Vivica as Taraji’s older on-screen sister is brilliant casting? Looking forward to seeing Viv on Empire?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Why is it that when a show becomes very popular, the powers that be immediately think “Spin Off?” Just stick with the original show and keep making that one better.

They’ve done some great new casting, but I don’t want to see the new characters spun into another show!

However, I’m now thinking that some of these new actors were promised said “new show” and that’s why they’ve signed on.

EMPIRE Season Six Premiere: Andre Is In For A Shocker

When Fox’s music biz soap opera, Empire returns for its sixth and final season (kicking off this Tuesday, September 24th, 9/8c) the opener features cancer survivor, Andre Lyon (Trai Byers) in charge of the Lyon dynasty – with his dad, Luscious completely MIA.

But when addressing the company staff on some changes within the structure of the organization and his plans, he is stunned when none other than Tracy (Amanda Detmer), that’s previously referred to and known as “White Tracy’” (due to her crack addiction), shows up with a soapy bombshell during the meeting.

The mother of Andre’s deceased half-brother, Jeff Kingsley saunters in and announces, “I’m Empire’s newest co-owner!”   And with that, season six begins its arc with a battle for control that will be front and center.

Tracy wants payback and has an ax to grind.  In the season 5 finale, she told the Lyon clan that her decision to donate her son’s heart to save Andre would come with strings attached, but did anyone expect she would go this far?  Yup!  Watch the teaser below for Tuesday’s night’s first episode of the  final season.

Meanwhile, the season six key art featuring series stars: Taraji P Henson (Cookie) and Terrence Howard  (Luscious) in the same position as the famous scene in the motion picture Titanic has with it the saying “Rule to the end”.   Who will be left standing when the series comes to its exciting and emotional conclusion?
