New Castings Out For Empire TV Show 2019 / 2020 Extras - Chicago Illinois

The Empire TV show films in the Chicago area and is now taking submissions from Chicago locals who would like to work as paid TV extras. Chicago’s 4 Star Casting is booking background actors, stand-ins and photo doubles for episodes filming into 2018.

4 Star put out the following message and has setup a new online casting form.

Lee Daniels’ edgy, hip hop music oriented drama is still in production for the 2019 season of the show.  “Empire”  has been in production since the summer and will most likely be filming new episodes through the 1st quarter of 2018.  The show stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe.

The prime time series calls the FOX Network home and is currently in its 4th season. The show first aired in January 2015 and centers around the Lyons family.  The families patriarch, Lucious Lyons who is played by Terrence Howard, is a hip hop music mogul in the middle of some serious family drama.  Complicating things is a woman named Cookie (Tariji P. Henson) who is his ex-wife as well as a grim medical diagnosis which may soon kill him.
