Remember Cockroach, Theo’s pal from “The Cosby Show”? Well, he’s been tapped by Lee Daniels’ casting director sister to host weekly streaming “Empire” parties. Carl Payne, who is also the stepfather to Bobby Brown’s oldest son, will anchor the events. Leah Daniels Butler is also looking for on air correspondents to help Payne report in from various cities. I guess the idea is to make watching “Empire” a total social networking event.
Here’s the notice from “Empire” land:
So far “Empire Wednesday” will emanate from Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Des Moines, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington D.C.
