The cast of ‘Empire’ just got a little bigger ahead of season 3.
After only one episode, Rapper Xzibit snags series regular role on ‘Empire’ when the hit FOX drama returns on September 21.
Fans were introduced to Xzibit’s character Shyne Johnson, a drug dealer music man from Lucious’ past, on the season 2 finale. According to ‘Empire’ showrunner Ilene Chaiken, Shyne will be a “a central character” in Lucious’ storyline for next season.
“Lucious has a long history with him — history that’s going to come back and bite Lucious for a lot of earlier slights,” Chaiken said. “If you have a guy who’s not afraid to die, not afraid to go to prison, that’s a very dangerous adversary.”
