Laverne Cox would be an absolute treasure on the show. No matter the role, though I prefer for one with substance, she’d have it in the bag. Cox has a diverse range that would make her a delight to watch interact with the Lyon family. An Empire appearance could end up being her big break into a more widespread audience outside of Orange Is The New Black. Not to mention she already knows Jussie Smollett (Jamal), who she is pictured with above.
