Vivica A. Fox Joins ‘Empire’

Just when you thought casting announcements for season 2 of Empire had ended, the producers revealed yet another surprise on Thursday. Vivica A. Fox has joined the show.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the 51-year-old will play Cookie’s older sister. She’s in town searching for Mrs. Lyon for unknown reasons.

If you recall, Cookie has another sister named Carol (Tasha Smith). We were introduced to her last season. While she seemed supportive and nurturing, executive producer Ilene Chaiken says, “Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least.”

Here for it!

Look for Ms. Fox on episode 8, and don’t miss the season premiere when it airs Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. est.
