Co-creator Lee Daniels announces news at singer’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony
Look out, Cookie: “Empire” just got another diva. Mariah Carey is set to guest on Season 2 of “Empire,” creator Lee Daniels told a crowd at the singer’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star dedication on Wednesday.
As previously announced, Ludacris and Kelly Rowland have joined the sophomore run of the hit hip-hop soap opera, which ended up as broadcast TV’s top drama over its freshman run. Marisa Tomei will recur. Snoop Dogg and Chris Rock will also both guest star on Season 2.
Carey wrapped her Las Vegas residency about a week ago, where she was regularly performing at Caesar’s Palace.
Filmmaker Brett Ratner, BET Programming President Stephen Hill and Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid were also in attendance for the ceremony, which took place at The W Hotel.
Daniels directed Carey in his films “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”
