And its buzz was just cranked up a notch courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Jussie Smollett may still be treading on uncertain ground in the wake of the legal fiasco surrounding his alleged attack, but he just received a major endorsement from his ‘Empire’ cast-mates.

As widely reported, the 36-year-old went from victim to suspect after reporting a January beatdown – one he insists was rooted in racism and homophobia.
