After Demi Moore, it is another heavyweight of the American cinema that joins the casting of the season 4 of Empire in a recurring role!

But what about the Empire season? Anika is in prison and her future seems uncertain. For his part, Lucious is completely amnesic and this is likely to pose a lot of problems within his society but also for the family Lyon. Will André keep the keys of the company? Will Cookie get her happy-ending? The mysterious nurse, embodied by Demi Moore, could also try to get his share of the cake. If Empire is known for his talented actors and guest-stars, Season 4 is set to hit very hard. The Variety website has announced that Forest Whitaker will join the cast of the Fox music series for a recurring role. The actor played in Rogue One: Star Wars Story, The Butler and Rage to the Belly.
