Empire Season 2 Casting Call for Series Extras

Season two of Empire will begin filming in the Chicago area this summer and Empire’s Extras Casting Team has released a casting call for Extras. If somehow you lived under a rock earlier this year when Empire premiered on the FOX network and have no earthly idea what Empire is, let me take a moment to remind you.

Empire Debut

Empire centers around the lives of a Hip-hop family torn apart by their Music, Power, Fame and Loyalty. Lucious Lyon is a legendary Hip-hop artist who started an entertainment company called Empire, he rules his company unchallenged until a deadly medical diagnosis changes his world. Lucious is diagnosed with ALS and is given a mare three years before he is completely incapacitated, so he must decide which of his three sons will take the reins of his company he fought so hard to create.

His favorite son is his youngest, Hakeem, a very gifted and hungry musician who lacks focus and values fame over hard work. He is easily distracted by money and the women that constantly flock to him. As the youngest, Hakeem has never met his mother and harbors some very deep resentment towards her. His middle son, Jamal, is also talented but he is shy and gay—which is the most embarrassing thing to Lucious, who tries to pressure Jamal to suppress who is for a shot at gaining his love. Jamal, however, has the love of his mother who has always accepted who he is. His oldest son, Andre, seems to lack the musical talents of his younger brothers but what he lacks in musical charisma he makes up for with his business mind. Andre however has gained the mistrust of his father, his father believes he is trying hard to be someone whom he wasn’t meant to be.

But things aren’t always as simple as choosing a son as heir to a Musical Empire, to further complicate his life his long forgotten ex-wife reemerges and is ready to take ownership of her part of Empire much to his dismay. Cookie, however isn’t going anywhere and if she does she isn’t going quietly. She contends that Lucious started Empire with money from her drug business, a business for which she spent 17 years behind bars.

And so the battle begins.
