As if the starpower hasn't been big enough on 'Empire', Lee Daniels and the crew have just upped the ANTE.
Superstar, Nia Long is set to join the casting in a FRONTBURNING recurring role!
Long will play Giuliana (Giusi), a queenpin who runs a club in Las Vegas and makes brash moves in the gangster underworld of New York to secure a deal with Empire. Sleek, sexy, and cold-blooded, she rubs elbows with Lucious (Terrence Howard) and goes toe-to-toe with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) even as she reckons with her own mysterious past.
Long, who starred as Alexis on ABC’s Uncle Buck, most recently appeared in feature Keanu and was cast in a recurring role in Netflix’s Dear White People. She’s repped by CAA, Primary Wave and Meyer & Downs.
This should be GOOD!
