Tyrese Joins The Cast of Empire for Season 2!
Tyrese will join the numerous high profile celebs already apart of FOX’s hit show Empire. The singer/actor has been added to the cast for the show’s second season. It’s no surprise since the man who played Taraji P. Henson’s love interest in her break out role as Yvette in John SIngleton’s Baby Boy has made his desire to once again join Taraji on screen very clear.
Tyrese told a TMZ photog back in April that it would “break the internet” if he reunited with Taraji on Empire. He also joked on social media about being jealous of Taraji’s on screen beau’s.
“I’ve had a problem with these Terrence Howards and these other guys on the show, man. Touching, kissing, and hugging. Sh*t ain’t cool,” he joked. “Gotta fix that.”
It’s looks like it has definitely been “fixed”. Both Tyrese and Empire’s Co-Creator, Lee Daniels confirmed the addition last night via Instagram.
