'Empire' Cast: Denzel Washington Wants To Join Lineup, 'I've Got To Be A Part Of This' [VIDEO]
The all-star lineup of Fox's newest hit series Empire might get even better if Denzel Washington has his way!
The creator of the series, Lee Daniels, spoke with the Philadelphia Enquirer Jan. 21 and said Washington wants to get back on the small screen. And he wouldn't mind Empire being the show in which he makes his return.
"Denzel hasn't done television in 30 years. But he saw the pilot and said, 'I've got to be a part of this,'" Daniels revealed.
He is definitely on board with the Remember The Titans actor making some type of appearance on his show.
He shared a selfie of him and Washington via Instagram Jan. 24 with the caption, "trying to talk this one into doing a guest star on #empire #nextweekdinneronme".
