If you haven’t already noticed the talk of the town is that there were several people in talks to play Cookie & Lucious on “Empire.”

As previously reported Mo’Nique was adamant that Lee Daniels wanted her to play Taraji P. Henson’s role of Cookie


and there have been talks that Wesley Snipes was in the running for Terrence Howard’s role of Lucious.

So if Terrence and Taraji weren’t in the picture then who could’ve played Lee Daniels’ lead roles????

Here’s a list of 20 people.
