WEB EXTRA: FOX 45 talks with Empire star Jussie Smollett
(WKEF/WRGT) - Empire is in full swing on FOX, bringing all the drama anyone could ever ask for between Cookie and Lucious.
FOX 45's Natalie Lizarraga had a chance to ask actor Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal on the show, what he thought about the family feud.
"You know what, at this point it's just, it's just personal and for the heart," Smollett said. "They both now are co-CEO's, so at this point, what are they battling for? They are battling for each other, and this point it's not about a company. This isn't about anything like that. This is about their love for each other, and their ever lasting love that they wish they could just quit, but they can't."
With season 4 already in the works, writers are already at work on new story lines. Smollett said he's still just as surprised as the fans.
"Yea, all the time, I'm like, we're doing what?" he said. "All the time, but it's exciting, man. That's what I love about being a cast member, but being a fan of the show."
"I really do, just like everyone else," he continued. "When it's a story line where I'm like wait, hold up, I don't want to see, you know I'm speaking genuinely as a fan as well. Like, why's he doing that, why she doing that? Then being like 'Ohh, I love it'. It's exciting all around. I'm going to be mad about some characters, I'm going to be happy with some of the characters, but it all makes for great TV."
There are only 3 episodes left in season 3, and you can catch every one of those on FOX 45.
