‘Extra’ Exclusive: Terrence Howard & Taraji P. Henson’s Inside Scoop on 'Empire'

Only “Extra’s” AJ Calloway sat down with Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson on the set of “Empire” in Chicago, where a photo shoot with the Lyon family was taking place!

As for upcoming surprises on the FOX show, who'll be running the empire by the end of the season?

While referring to the character of Uncle Eddie, played by Academy Award winner “The Last King of Scotland’s” Forest Whitaker, Terrence teased, “Cookie and Lucious learn to work together in a beautiful way. But sometimes you'll invite a friend in to help you through a rough period... but once you get on your feet they don't want to move out.”

Terrence added, “My friend Forest comes in and he's been helpful, but he starts to overstay his welcome a little bit, and we have to deal with that. He's a force to be reckoned with. He’s the King of Scotland, you don't mess with him... he'll eat you! He’s the most formidable monster that Lucious has ever had to come through... I get upset sometimes because they give him all the good lines!”

Taraji also shared her thoughts on Forest, laughing, “Ain’t nobody scared of no King of Scotland! You met your match through Cookie 'cause I'll eat your ass alive!”

“Empire” returns March 28 on FOX.
