‘Empire’ Adds More Talent To Roster

The Lyon’s den is nearing it’s mid-season return and as we get ready for more of Empire’s intensity, drama and scheming, the popular series is still building its talent roster.

Homeland actor Morocco Omari joins the cast in a major recurring role as Tariq Cousins, an FBI big shot who went from being “one of the finest cops” to protect the streets of Philadelphia to the head of the entire department.

Described as “a closer,” Tariq’s intentions are never hidden, but always discreetly handled.

Will there be a face-off between the king of the police squad and a rebellious and street-minded Lucious Lyon?

Our guess? It’s only right.

Stay tuned. Empire returns March 30 on Fox.
