This is no rinky-dink operation, either. "Empire"'s producer Lee Daniels was behind critical hits like "The Butler" and "Precious," and Campbell will co-star alongside Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. The supermodel plays Camilla, described in a press release as "an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much-younger potential heir to his father’s throne." Oooh, scandal!
Campbell already has a number of television roles under her belt in which she played herself: her reality competition show "The Face," for one, but she's also acted on shows like "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and "Absolutely Fabulous."
"Empire" will debut early 2015.
