Who Plays Angelo Dubois On Empire? Taye Diggs

Taye Diggs is the actor who plays Angelo Dubois on Empire.  On the series, Angelo plays a city councilman who is not like Lucious Lyon.  While Lucious grew up poor, Angelo comes from a rich family.  He plays Cookie’s new love interest on the series.  Taraji P. Henson explained that she requested him for the role.

Henson has never worked with the actor before yet she has recognized his talent.  Angelo is a very smart politician who will introduce us to a Cookie Lyon that we’ve never seen before.  We’re sure Lucious won’t be happy to find out that Cookie is moving on.  First, there was Malcolm and then there was Laz.

It was easy for Lucious to get rid of both Malcolm and Laz.  With Malcolm, Lucious was his boss so he was just able to fire him.  Laz was living a lie so he made Lucious look like a hero.  Angelo is an honest guy from a good home.  Although he doesn’t seem like Cookie’s type, sometimes change is exactly what you need.

Angelo graduated from Harvard’s Law School and could have made a fortune in the private sector.  Similar to President Barack Obama he decided to focus on changing the community.  Do you think him and Cookie will last?
