The cast of "Power" got together for a table read and we've got pics from their meeting. See the pics inside and find out about the latest "Empire" casting.
The cast of the STARZ hit series "Power" got together this week for their first table read of Season 3. Check out the St. Patrick family above (Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Michael Rainey Jr. and Donshea Hopkins).
Later on, executive producer 50 Cent joined the fold, captioning "POWER season3 will be even better. We are turning it up a notch."
And it looks like Rotimi will be stepping his screen time up as the right-hand man of "Ghost." The fact that he was at the FIRST table read of the season means producers have big plans for him....and we're happy about that!
In other news.....
We didn't think the casting crew over at "Empire" could top themselves...but they have. We've got a JUICY casting tidbit that's making the rounds and we're super excited. Picture.....Taraji P. Henson's "Cookie" character in a room with her baby sister Carol Hardaway (played by Tasha Smith) and their big sister played by Vivica A. Fox. So far, FOX hasn't revealed the name of Vivica's character. But we do know a little bit about the plotline....
According to EW, Vivica comes to town searching for her younger sis Cookie for reasons unknown. Executive Producer Ilene Chaiken teased EW saying, “Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least....”
FYI - Vivica pops up in episode 8. Also, Lee Daniels has mentioned previously that he's interested in an "Empire" spinoff showcasing Cookie’s family when she was younger. Could this be a setup for a new series?
