'Empire' Producers Want Eminem to Join Cast in Season 2

'Empire' Producer Plans to 'Beg' Eminem to Be on Second Season

During yesterday's 'Good Morning America' film and TV producer Brian Grazer, the producer behind 'Empire' stopped by to promote his new book, 'A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life'. During the course of the interview, George Stephanopoulos asked him about the future of 'Empire' in season 2. Here's what Grazer had to say:
"Eminem, I know, loves our show. And I produced 8 Mile. I'm going to beg him to get on our show. He and Oprah Winfrey. Somehow I'm going to get one or both of them on our show." [Source>
Since the executive producer of 'Empire', Lee Daniels, worked with Oprah Winfrey in the past, I don't see it hard to believe that Oprah will make an appearance in Season 2. As for Eminem? Well, he has not done much since '8 Mile' but, the actor did have a cameo on 'The Interview' so who knows. The show’s premiere ranked as Fox’s highest-rated debut in three years. Viewership has increased continuously; Empire is the first series in at least 23 years to have its viewership increase week to week for its first five episodes. With the growing number of fans expect actors, models, and musicians of all genres lining up to join the cast of 'Empire'. What do you think?
