The list of stars on Empire’s cast continues to grow. Vivica A. Fox will be joining the hit drama, portraying Cookie Lyon’s (Taraji P. Henson) older sister. 

“OK was trying to save this info! But YES it’s true!! I’m joining the cast of Empire to play Cookie’s older sister!! #Blessed #LifeIsGood,” tweeted Auntie Vivica this afternoon (Sept. 10).

Reports Entertainment Weekly:

EW has exclusively learned that Kill Bill star Vivica A. Fox will be appearing on season 2 of the Fox hit as the oldest sister of Cookie (Taraji P. Henson). Fox’s character comes to Empire in search of her younger sis for reasons unknown.

We’ve already met Cookie’s sister Carol (Tasha Smith) but executive producer Ilene Chaiken tells EW, “Cookie’s other family members are troublesome to say the least.” Soooo we’re guessing Fox’s character, who debuts in episode 8, isn’t exactly aiming for Sibling of the Year. 

Season 2 of Empire kicks off on September 23, and it’s going to be lit.
