Nicole Ari Parker Joins ‘Empire’

Nicole Ari Parker is the latest celeb to join the cast of “Empire.” The “Time After Time” star has landed a recurring role on the Fox music drama opposite of Forest Whitaker. Via Deadline:

Parker will play Giselle Barker, Eddie Barker’s (Whitaker) beautiful trophy ex-wife. Her character will be introduced in Wednesday’s mid-season finale.

Season 4 has seen Lucious (Terrence Howard) battling to regain his physical and mental faculties after the explosion and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) with her own challenges, revisiting her traumatic 17 years in prison in a series of flashbacks.

Congrats! I look forward to seeing her on the show.
