Fox’s Empire is getting Moore help for season 4.
Actress Demi Moore has signed onto the musical drama in her first-ever recurring TV role (at least, since she was on General Hospital for a season back in 1982).
The Ghost and Indecent Proposal star will make her first appearance in the show’s current season finale, playing “a take-charge nurse with a mysterious past” who will become ever more entangled with the Lyon family next fall.
Fun fact: Moore’s daughter Rumer Willis is also appearing on the show next season, as previously announced. Other newcomers for season 4 include Eva Longoria, Taye Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Nia Long.
Empire returns for its midseason premiere on Wednesday, March 22. The tease from Fox: “The battle between Lucious and Cookie explodes into their biggest war yet. After launching a deadly missile at Angelo, Lucious announces his new music project, Inferno, and puts everyone on notice – especially Cookie, who then vows to knock him off his throne for good. The two engage in an epic clash – fueled by a history of love, loyalty, and betrayal.”
Empire ranks as broadcast’s top-rated drama among adults 18-49.
