Empire to Recast or Kill off Jussie Smollett?

Empire is possibly looking to recast Jussie Smollett’s character with another actor.

According to Shadow Act

After being indicted on 16 counts for allegedly filing a false police report, the fate of Smollett’s standing on the Fox drama Empire has been the subject of speculation among many critics. The Fox musical drama is set to premiere the final half of its fifth season this week.

With word that Smollett’s character, Jamal Lyon, would not be appearing in the final two episodes of the season, sources have told Variety that it is possible the middle child of Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) will be either killed off or the role will be recast with another actor.
