Fox’s hit Empire keeps adding marquee names to an already impressive season 2 guest list. Actress Marisa Tomei will appear in the new set of episodes in a recurring role, EW confirmed.

The Oscar winner will play Mimi Whiteman, a venture capitalist who becomes involved in the Lyons’ never-ending drama. The character is a Forbes list billionaire who loves hip hop, fashion and beautiful women, according to a description provided by Fox.

Given the success of season 1 and its guest stars—most notably Courtney Love and Jennifer Hudson—Empire is going even bigger for its sophomore year. So far, Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, and Adam Rodriguez are slated to appear in the 18-episode season.

See how they try to mesh with Cookie when season 2 premieres on Sept. 23.
