The cast to Fox’s hit series Empire is about to get a little bigger. After making a guest appearance in the finale to season 2, Xzibit took to Instagram to confirm that Leslie “Shyne” Johnson will indeed be a regular in season 3 and continue to be a thorn in Luscious Lyons’ side.

“Very happy to announce that I will be a series regular on the upcoming 3rd season of @empirefox. Thankful for the opportunity and excited to “bring it” with the rest of the stellar cast already in place.”

It’s good to see the show is hiring actors who actually come from the music industry as it can only help with the show’s plot lines and drama. Lets just hope Shyne Johnson doesn’t end up eventually getting the Frank Gathers exit on the show.
