As talks of having Oprah on Season 2 of Fox’s musical drama ‘Empire’ have swirled around, Brian Grazer – the film and TV producer whose Imagine TV produces Empire – told Good Morning America yesterday of another big-name star he would love to have a part of the show.
“Eminem, I know, loves our show,” Grazer said. “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.”
As the numbers climbed each week, at unprecedented intervals, sources say much of the success of the show can be attributed to the juicy plot and sensational cast, both permanent characters and those featured in cameo’s.
The first season was so good, Grazer would have to pull out bells and whistles for the second season to compare.
