Adam Rodriguez Joins ‘Empire’ as Cookie’s New Love Interest!

Hollywood, Hollywood News

Thanks to several previous reports, actress Taraji P. Henson has mentioned that her Empire character Cookie will have two new love interests next season – and one may have just been announced.

According to reports, it seems that Magic Mike XXL star Adam Rodriguez has joined the Season 2 cast of Fox’s breakout show as a recurring guest star.

Rodriguez will play “Laz Delgado,” a smooth-talking concert promoter with expert hustler skills. Laz is a native New Yorker and former EMT who takes an interest in Cookie.

The actor joins previously announced guest stars, including Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, and Ne-Yo.

Rodriguez, who now recurs on NBC’s medical drama The Night Shift, will next be seen in Magic Mike XXL opposite Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello.

The second season of “Empire” returns Sept. 23 at 9 p.m.
