Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels was spotted on the Chicago-based set of his latest tv project "Empire" recently.  A few weeks ago, we told you about the new FOX series which is billed as a music-heavy family drama set in the world of hip hop.  Lee has definitely lined up some A-list talent including Taraji P. Henson, his Precious star Gabourey Sidibe, Jussie Smollett, Malik Yoba and Macy Gray (not pictured).  

And the cast has already kicked things off with a big table read of the script.

Taraji, who will play Cookie Lyon, said, "Happy birthday to my boo!!!! #TerrenceHoward #Empire is going to be #EPIC!!!!!!!! So glad to be working with this talented man again!!!!!"
