You never know what’s going to happen when Cookie and Lucious match wits. Same goes for Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. The two Empire stars are joining forces to host Spike TV’s ninth annual Guys Choice Awards, the dudetastic event that celebrates “the men of the year and the women who love them.”
In this collection of outtakes from the promo shoot, check out the hustle and flow of the two Hs—who will also compete this summer in the season finale of Spike’s Lip Sync Battle—as they jockey for camera time, swear a bit, and argue about who’s the biggest star of the show. And cower in fear when Henson boasts about what she could do to Howard’s collarbone.
Guys Choice 2015—whose honorees include Henson, Liam Neeson, Chris Pratt, Hannah Davis and Russell Westbrook—will be filmed on June 6 in L.A. and air on June 18 at 9 p.m.
