Expect to watch Emmy-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson assume even higher top-billing when “Empire” returns asTerrence Howard’s role has been significantly reduced.
fter brutal photos of Terrence Howard’s battered ex-wife Michelle Ghent went viral, along with lurid details of their drug-infused sexcapades – we knew it was a matter of time before his work suffered. Now there are reports that Lee Daniels and the execs at FOX have decided to reduce Terrence’s on-screen “Empire” scenes.
A source told Page Six that Terrence will be seen a lot less due to his recent divorce drama and numerous prior allegations of domestic abuse.
“What they are doing is two-fold,” said the source. “They have him locked up so you won’t be seeing him in as many scenes. But they are bringing in so many, and I mean so many, guest stars and cameos that the average viewer won’t realize it because there is so much going on.”
You’ll recall that previous posts have revealed that Mariah Carey, Pitbull, Chris Rock, Ludacris, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz and Marisa Tomei have been confirmed to appear as guest stars on the upcoming season.
