Round and round, the Empire Season 2 wheel of casting rolls out more and more big names, and after Marisa Tomei, another name has signed on in a surprising role. Singer and Destiny’s Child survivor Kelly Rowland will appear in a significant Empire Season 2 role, playing matriarch to none other than Lucious Lyon himself.
All eyes will fall on Empire Season 2, as TV’s biggest 2015 breakout challenges itself to repeat success. The Lyons certainly won’t be going it alone, either, as Marisa Tomei has officially joined the cast in the recurring role of a hip-hop loving lesbian billionaire. Yes, you read that correctly.
FOX’s Minority Report TV series took the rare path of following its cinematic inspiration as a straight sequel, though the latest bit of casting makes a few minor adjustments.

FOX’s M. Night Shyamalan-driven Wayward Pines hasn’t quite captured audiences everywhere (the Shyamalan name hardly commands intrigue these days), though upticks in DVR viewing and moderate ratings may well pave the way to a second season. That said, will star-studded cast the likes of Matt Dillion, Carla Gugino, Terrence Howard or Melissa Leo return?
The X-Files were officially reopened with the first batch of photos from 2016's FOX revival, even as many wondered what might change for Mulder and Scully after so many years out of the spotlight. Now, series stars and creator Chris Carter talk the state of Mulder and Scully in 2016, and how the post-9/11 climate influences the new X-Files.
Apart from a general conception of what David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson currently look like as human beings, we’ve been waiting for a genuine glimpse of The X-Files’ long awaited return. Now, a full file of new photos from the revival have arrived, teasing Americans and Community guest stars, with a few extraterrestrial details to boot.
