Whoopi Goldberg is angling for a role in hit new TV show Empire.
The star is hoping to juggle acting work around her slot on TV chat show The View, and Lee Daniels’ new hip-hop industry drama starring Terrence Howard is top of her list.
She tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, “I’m trying to get on Empire… I’ve always been able to come and go as I choose (on The View). It’s been in the contract to allow me to go and make movies if I wanted to or do something if I wanted to.”
Empire has garnered quite the attention since it premiered
Would you like to see Whoopi make an appearance on Empire? If so, what kind of role would you want to see her play? I could totally see her playing Cookie’s mom, but we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
