‘Empire’ season 2 spoilers: First look at Marisa Tomei!

Fox’s breakout show Empire will be introducing Vivica A. Fox as Cookie Lyon’s older sister, according to Entertainment Weekly.


“The world of Empire keeps getting bigger!” The reasons are now unknown as to why Fox’s character comes searching for her younger sister. “That means I’m over!’ You know?”

Whereas Empire followers will recall that Cookie’s youthful sister Carol (Tasha Smith) appeared on Season 1, government producer Ilene Chaiken tells the plot will exclusively thicken: “Cookie’s different relations are troublesome to say the least”.

Vivica A. Fox joins TV series Empire. Fox will be splitting “Empire’s” sophomore season into two halves. She recalled, “He said, ‘OK, Lala”. The site also reports that Daniels cops to logging multiple calls to pal Oprah Winfrey to try to get her on the show. Jamila Velazquez, Raquel Castro and newcomer Yani Marin have also signed on with unconfirmed recurring roles according to VineReport. With previous news reported by the New York Post that Henson’s co-star Terrence Howard’s role would be diminished due to his personal drama and domestic abuse allegations indirectly helps the writers with putting more focus on Cookie’s character and family relations. We assumed for some time that Mimi was going to be someone who was trying to purchase Empire Entertainment, but given the talk about Cookie maybe starting her own label early this season, could she be an investor in that?


The first photo of Tomei above was first shared by TVLine, and it features her standing clearly alongside Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). So mark your calendar’s and be prepared for the premiere.
