EMPIRE: Alvin “Xzibit” Joiner to Guest Star


Alvin “Xzibit” Joiner will be making a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of EMPIRE.

“He was cast as “Leslie ‘Shyne’ Johnson” who is 100% wolf and 100% gangster,” says Fox. “He’s managed artists, started record imprints, and even sold a few units here and there, but his bread and butter has always been – much to his years-long frustration – drugs, guns and extortion. Feeling shut out by the other heavy hitters in the music industry, he carries a big chip on his shoulder—especially for Lucious.”

Xzibit is a multi-platinum rapper, actor and producer and he has appeared in several films, including BAD LIEUTENANT opposite Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes, GRIDIRON GANG opposite Dwayne Johnson and XXX: STATE OF THE UNION opposite Ice Cube and Samuel L. Jackson.

EMPIRE will return with all new episodes on Wednesday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on FOX
