Fox’s Empire Season 5 returns to our TV screens later this month and it looks like singer/actor Mario, joins the cast this season.
According to Billboard, Mario will play the role of Devon, described by Fox as “an earnest, up-and-coming R&B singer who supports his ailing sister.” Both the Empire label and Lyon Family Management are vying against each other to sign him.
Mario recently shared a picture on set with Terrence Howard. See the picture below:
Best known for contemporary R&B/pop hits such as “Let Me Love You”, Mario is no stranger to acting. He was a part of the TV series Love That Girl! and the films Freedom Writers and Step Up.
