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.

Mario who recently dropped two joints – ‘Drowning‘ and ‘Girl Like You‘ also has new album on the way but for now you can look forward to seeing him play the role of “Devon” on Empire.

Empire Season 5 begins its fifth season on Wednesday, Sept. 26th.
