Empire Season 2 spoilers: pop sensation Becky G. to have guest appearance; Ludacris to star as prison officer


Pop sensation Becky G. is set to keep the cast of Empire Season 2 even more fresh as she has reportedly been cast for a guest role in the show’s upcoming run.

The news came from Bryshere Y. Gray (Hakeem) when he posted a video of the talented singer-songwriter on the set of Empire Season 2 on his Facebook page, TVFanatic reported.

The 17-year-old rose to stardom via youtube and was responsible for hits like Cant Get Enough and Shower.

It was reported that her character’s name will be Valentina, reported RealtyToday. However, it was not yet revealed what type of character she will play. Still, the young artist will definitely feel at home with all the talent on the Empire set.

Becky G. joins the long line of big name guest stars who appeared in the first season including Estelle, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, Anthony Hamilton and Patti Labelle.

This season, expected to join the cast are Adam Rodriguez, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Chris Rock and Marisa Tomei. Ludacris is also expected to join the show to play correctional officer McKnight.

Meanwhile, a TVLine spoiler hinted that Fox is casting the role of Chloe, “an aggressive reality show producer who firmly believes in getting good video by stirring up ‘bad issues”.

A report by Design and Trend likened the character to Jake Gyllenhaall’s character in Nightcrawler, a reporter who will stop at nothing, least of all ethics to get the story.

Chloe could not come at a more opportune time because Luscious Lyon and his son Jamal are expected to come into hardships especially in the first part of the season with the season promo showing him behind bars. On the flipside, Luscious’ ex wife cookie and other son Andre are expected to fare better with Cookie back in charge of the company.

Empire is set to return to television on September 23, 2015, reported whenwill.net.
