Jussie Smollett Felt “Pride” Ahead of Potential Final “Empire” Episode


Ahead of Jussie Smollett’s potential final episode of Empire on Wednesday, the actor told TMZ he felt “pride” about the work he has done on the show. The outlet caught up with Smollett as he was leaving Lafayette restaurant in New York City, just hours before his character Jamal Lyon got married in TV’s first-ever black, gay wedding. While Smollett’s character has already been written out of the final two episodes of this season, it’s unclear if he will return next year. However, several of the actor’s co-stars penned a letter to FOX execs on Wednesday calling for Smollett’s return if the show is picked up for a sixth season.
