TV Line reports that Scott Leo “Taye” Diggs has signed on for a recurring role on Fox’s hip-hop drama, Empire. The actor will play Angelo Dubois, a city councilman that’s from a wealthy New York family. We’re guessing he’ll have a feud with Lucious Lyon, similar to every other character on the show.

The last time Hakeem Lyon shared his political views we begged him to stop. Then he urinated in public, while sharing his belief that Barack Obama doesn’t care about black people. We hope that he doesn’t have any interaction with the new character.
I think that him and Thirsty Rawlings, Lucious’ lawyer, may end up bumping heads. Thirsty doesn’t do things by the book, instead, he follows his own set of rules. A councilman from a wealthy family may take this personal.
