Talk show host Wendy Williams said on today’s show, actor Taraji P Henson as Cookie is the only irreplaceable role on the Fox hit series, “Empire,” and though I agree; Cookie’s character is essential, it is Terrence Howard who makes the show!
Don’t get me wrong, Taraji is great as Cookie and they both embody their perspective roles effortlessly but Lucious is who connects everyone together.
Wendy seems to think Howard’s personal problems could jeopardize his role on the show, i.e. Columbus Short on Scandal.
Bad comparison, Columbus Short was not a lead.
Terrence Howard’s personal problems are bad PR but I’m not thinking about them when watching Empire.
Terrence and Taraji are both vital to the show’s success!
