‘Empire’ Producer Plans to ‘Beg’ Eminem to Be on Second Season

Tuesday morning on Good Morning America, film and TV producer Brian Grazer — whose Imagine TV produces Empire — stopped by to promote his book, A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life.

Thankfully, George Stephanopoulos wouldn’t let him leave without sharing a little preview of Empire season 2. Here’s what Grazer had to say:

Eminem, I know, loves our show. And I produced 8 Mile. I’m going to beg him to get on our show. He and Oprah Winfrey. Somehow I’m going to get one or both of them on our show.”


Given that Lee Daniels — who executive produces Empire — directed Winfrey in The Butler, an appearance of the Divine O on Empire isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.

As for Eminem? Hey, he did a cameo on The Interview, and this would give him a chance to appear on a show people actually like. So why not?
