Just because the second season of Empire is underway doesn’t mean the guest star announcements have stopped flowing in. The latest one is a pick from Lee Daniels who is even more unlikely than Marissa Tomei.

While speaking with his The Paperboy leading lady, Nicole Kidman for the latest issue of Interview magazine, Daniels made mention that he was exactly thrilled the 48-year-old Academy Award winner was “having the time of her life” in London with her husband Keith Urban, because she was overdue for an Empire cameo.

“I was disappointed to hear that because, of course, I want you on my set,” Daniels and Kidman both shared a laugh over after the red-hot director revealed he knew she was lollygagging in Europe. Her reply? “Can’t wait.”

The current season of FOX’s hit Hip-Hop soap opera is already scheduled to feature supporting roles from the likes of Mariah Carey, Tyrese and Vivica A. Fox to name a few. We’re sure Nicole Kidman will get in where she fits in.
