Ludacris, Empire


Ludacris is just the latest famous face to join Empire season two. The musician turned actor took to Instagram to announce his involvement with the new Fox series.

"This could get interesting.....#empireseason2," he shared.

From the looks of his photo with star Terrence Howard he's going to play a prison guard. Or maybe he's undercover for Lucious Lyon? The possibilities are endless. Does this mean Chris Rock has a scene with the Furious 7 star now? These are the questions.

Ludacris is just one of many famous faces popping up in season two. We have yet to confirm whether Lee Daniels has nabbed Oprah Winfrey and Common for roles despite all the public discussion, but here's what we do know about the stars coming by:
