We didn’t think the casting crew over at “Empire” could top themselves but they have. We’ve got a Jjuicy casting tidbit that’s making the rounds and we’re super excited.
Taraji P. Henson’s “Cookie” character has a big sister played by Vivica A. Fox. So far, name of Vivica’s character has not been revealed. But we do know a little bit about the plotline….
According to EW, Vivica comes to town searching for her younger sis Cookie for reasons unknown. Executive Producer Ilene Chaiken teased EW saying, “Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least….”
Vivica pops up in episode 8.
Also, Lee Daniels has mentioned previously that he’s interested in an “Empire” spinoff showcasing Cookie’s family when she was younger. Could this be a setup for a new series?
