Now, it would appear a role on music drama ‘Empire’ is on the cards for Brandy (who is also working on a new album).
After teasing involvement in the Lee Daniels drama earlier this month, the singer all but confirmed her recruitment by joining the cast at the FOX Upfront presentation today.
The network has enlisted actor-comedian Chris Rock, pop star Alicia Keys and singer and Hunger Games actor Lenny Kravitz for roles next season, Fox TV chairman and CEO Dana Walden announced to advertisers in New York on Monday.
There are no details yet on how the stars will be folded into the storyline of the show, which during its debut season landed talent like Snoop Dogg, Gladys Knight and Mary J. Blige. And this just-announced trio are almost certainly only the beginning of the show’s guest star roster for season 2. Previously, producers suggested Oprah and Common may appear in the new season as well, but they are not confirmed.
The press event, which is held to tout the shows on the 2015-2016 schedules, is typically only attended by the talent on the programming being promoted. And per the snaps above and below, a roll-call of ‘Empire’s stars populated every pic B-Rocka featured in; stars such as Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Jennifer Hudson, and Timbaland – who executive produces the music on the series.
