‘Empire’ may be on its way to replacing Jussie Smollett with another actor.
Full story below…
The actor plays Jamal in the show but was recently indicted on 16 counts for allegedly filing a false police report which means his future on the series is uncertain.
Bad news for him…great news for any aspiring actor hoping to slip into his spot.
Sources have told Variety that it is possible the middle child of Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) will be either killed off or the role will be recast with another actor.
The show’s officials are yet to confirm this report and voiced their support for him before it emerged that he may have orchestrated his own assault.
