Terrance Howard is a pretty good actor and we've seen him be funny, serious and even a rapper in Hustle and Flow. But look for him to be in another hip hop drama. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Terrance landed the starring role in Lee Daniels' "Empire." He will play a tough, wise Lucious Lyon who is the head of a record label. I was hoping to see him rap again like Hustle and Flow! This will be Lee Daniels' debut in TV directing with this project.
