Jimmy Fallon releasing Empire parody called Jimpire
Empire returns Wednesday night, but the “Jimpire” lands Tuesday.
NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will debut its latest digital original, in which Fallon distinctly borrows the Lucious Lyon sartorial guide from the first half of Fox’s smash series.
Even better? The real Lucious and Cookie will pop up, with Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson making appearances. Announcer Steve Higgins might have the best get-up, rocking an overflowing fur coat and leopard-spotted fedora.
Check out the first look of the series below. The short will air on the The Tonight Show, at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Empire season 2 premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
