Just when we thought Empire was done with cameos and guest stars for awhile it seems that Taye Diggs is ready to make an appearance on the hit series! Taye is getting some serious roles, albeit recurring, from FOX. He may soon be a mainstay on the network. According to Entertainment Weekly, he will have a rather prestigious role on the show.

The actor, who also recently had a recurring role on on the Fox series, Rosewood, 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.
This third season is definitely shaping up to be star-studded and scandalous. We are more than ready to see if Rhonda or Anika were offed, and where is Cookie’s mind now that she had to watch Lucious marry another woman. We will keep you posted as more news about Empire Season 3 emerges!
