Kelly Rowland is Joining The Cast of Empire
Not quite. Kelly is set to play Lucious Lyon’s mother. In a flashback, of course. This casting seems to suggest that we’ll get the opportunity to look at Lucious Lyon’s childhood and “what drove the gangster-turned-rapper-turned-entrepreneur.”
“Empire’s” first season was full of memorable flashbacks, such as young Jamal in a trashcan and Lucious and Cookie’s relationship. Apparently, season 2 will follow the same tradition.
