Courtney Love is coming to Fox’s primetime. The singer/actress has joined the cast of midseason hip-hop drama Empire in a recurring guest star role.
Empire stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, the head of a record label. Love will play Elle Dallas, “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment’s stable of artists.” The Hole singer’s most recent acting gig was on another show in the Fox family, FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and she had had major roles in films such as The People vs. Larry Flynt and The Man in the Moon.
Other previously announced Empire guest stars to be featured on the show include model Naomi Campbell, Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story), Derek Luke (The Americans) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club).
