Whether people like “Empire” or not (most people do, but claim they don’t), it is the show that has everyone talking. For everyone not on vacation this Memorial Weekend, TV One has them covered. A full series marathon of “Empire” is taking place, right now.
Early in season two, Frank Gathers (Chris Rock) emerges as the first antagonist. However, many overlooked the fact that Frank Gathers was cast earlier in the series. In fact, Frank shows up in the flashback during Cookie’s (Taraji P. Henson) testimony.
Few people recognized that fact until TV One re-aired “Empire” and this episode aired. Now, a few people have pointed out that Frank was cast before Chris Rock made his cameo appearance. Another fun fact is that Tyrone Ward, the Frank in the top photo, played a role as a random Lucious (Terrence Howard) goon in season two.
