*Nia Long has booked a recurring role on the current third season of Fox’s hit music drama series “Empire.”

According to Deadline, “Long will play Giuliana, a queenpin who runs a club in Las Vegas and makes brash moves in the gangster underworld of New York to secure a deal with Empire. Sleek, sexy, and cold-blooded, she rubs elbows with Lucious (Terrence Howard) and goes toe-to-toe with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) even as she reckons with her own mysterious past.”

The actress most recently appeared in the big screen feature “Keanu” and was cast in a recurring role in Netflix’s “Dear White People” series, which is based on Justin Simien’s 2014 crowdfunded movie. THR reports that the 10-episode, 30-minute project will, like the film, “follow a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college where racial tensions are often swept under the rug.”
