Xzibit Lands Role on FOX’s “Empire”
Xzibit continues to expand his acting credentials, landing a role in FOX's hit drama, EMPIRE.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rap vet is set to guest star in the series as a rival to the show's central character, Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard.
X will play Leslie "Shyne" Johnson, who the report describes as "100% wolf and 100% gangster." He's also an industry veteran, who has funded his career via criminal tactics such as drug sales and extortion... and has a "big chip on his shoulder" for Lucious.
It's currently unclear how many episodes Xzibit will appear in.
Empire is scheduled to return to FOX on March 30.
