Fox’s “Empire” has cast Nia Long in a recurring role.
Long will play Las Vegas club queenpin Giuliana, per Fox. Giuliana makes brash moves in the gangster underworld of New York to secure a deal with Empire. Sleek, sexy, and cold-blooded, she rubs elbows with Lucious and goes toe-to-toe with Cookie even as she reckons with her own mysterious past.
The “Best Man Holiday” star can next be seen in Lifetime’s remake of “Beaches,” as well as indie films “Roxanne, Roxanne” and “Lemon.”
She joins other notable guest stars/recurring players on the current Season 3 of Empire including recently announced Rumer Willis, Mariah Carey, Taye Diggs, Birdman and French Montana.
