Taye Diggs is joining the cast of Empire for the show’s third season.
The actor, who also recently had a recurring role on on the Fox seriesRosewood, will recur as Angelo Dubois, a New York councilman with a Harvard law degree and a wealthy family background. Instead of pursuing richer endeavors, Dubois instead focuses on local politics and community issues, which inspires Barack Obama comparisons.
Diggs is the latest guest star added to the Empire ranks for the third season. Earlier this month, EW revealed French Montana, ex-boyfriend of Khloé Kardashian, will appear in the season 3 premiere as a music mogul who’s part of Lucious Lyon’s inner circle.
We thought the show did away with all of the unnecessary cameo roles — but apparently not. The third season of Empire premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
