The Fox network says Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker will guest-star in a multi-episode arc on Empire season four.
Whitaker will play “4Uncle Eddie,” a charismatic music mogul who long ago gave an unknown Lucious Lyon (series star Terrence Howard) his first radio airplay. Now, decades later, Eddie steps up for Lucious at a critical moment during his rehabilitation. A grateful Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) invites Eddie to produce a song in celebration of Empire Entertainment’s 20th anniversary.
Whitaker’s film credits include last year’s Arrival, Lee Daniels’ The Butler and The Last King of Scotland, for which he won the Oscar for best actor as well as a Golden Globe award.
Empire returns for its new season in September 2017.
