Taye Diggs talks about his recurring role on Empire

The producers of the FOX hit show Empire are clearly going for the ladies with a new character.

This season, actor Taye Diggs will play a politician who is drawn to the scheming character, Cookie Lyons. His role will be recurring.

“Everybody watches this show. They all want to get the goods from me. It’s the biggest show I’ve ever been on,” Diggs said.

He joined Good Day to talk more about his character and how he was picked for the role.

Diggs has also starred in the Best Man films with another Empire star, Terrence Howard.
