Nia Long Joins The Cast Of “Empire” As A Recurring Cast Member

November 23, 2016  |  

Lee Daniels and the people over at Fox keep finding new and inventive ways to keep “Empire” fresh. And that includes adding some of our favorite, familiar faces to the cast.

The latest of these celebrities is Nia Long.

Long is set to appear on the third season of “Empire” as a recurring character named Giuliana (Guisi). Guisi is a queenpin who runs a club in Las Vegas. She is not above making unscrupulous back room deals to keep the club to get ahead. In season 3, she’s working to secure a deal with Empire Records.

In working with Lucious and Cookie she is forced to reckon with her own past.

Will you be watching this season?
