Well, this is a surprising turn of events — Actually, nothing 50 Cent does is surprising anymore.
After complaining, criticizing and accusing “Empire” of copying his show “Power”, it looks like 50 Cent has had a change of heart and will be taking his talents to the competition. While at the premiere for FOX’s new drama the show’s director/producer Lee Daniels revealed that Fiddy was full of it! “Oh 50 he didn’t even seen the show,” Daniels told HipHollywood, “I just talked to him … two weeks ago, he said he was going to come guest star.”
But, the rapper isn’t the only surprising guest star on the highly anticipated show. Naomi Campbell, Raven-Symone, V. Bozeman, Estelle, Derek Luke, Tasha Smith and more will make an appearance on Empire — hell, even Oprah may stop by. “Oprah said it redefines television. I said well come on and guest star on my show then and shut up,” Lee revealed to HH.
Academy Award nominees and Hustle and Flow co-stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard lead the stellar cast of actors who showed up for the Hollywood premiere Tuesday night. Check out our interviews (above) and make sure you watch the debut of Empire, Wednesday, January 7th at 9pm on FOX.
