AzMarie Livingston is not a novice when it comes to acting. She her first acting role was in DTLA as Melanie Griffith‘s girlfriend.
Now she’s working on her next big acting break role on Fox’s upcoming hip hop drama ‘Empire’.
With Out Academy Award nominee, director Lee Daniels (‘Precious’ and ‘The Butler’), Emmy Award winner Danny Strong leading, along with show-runner Ilene Chaiken behind the project, there is a strong LGBT essence to this project.
And it has been hinted that AzMarie will be playing someone queer. Her character is named ‘Chicken’.
Empire is described as “… a sexy and powerful new drama about the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle for his throne.”
The all-star cast includes Terrence Howard as the king of hip-hop, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett (playing Howard’s the gay son) and Gabourey Sidibe.
Empire won’t air until 2015, but we’re excited to see what this great team comes up with.
