According to The Hollywood Reporter, Naomi Campbell will have a role in Lee Daniels’s upcoming TV project, Empire. The show is slated to air early next year on Fox.

The show will be a family drama which is set in the world of a hip-hop empire and stars Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), the head of a record label at the center of the series.

“Naomi is a beautiful actress, underrated in my mind,” said co-creator/executive producer Daniels (The ButlerPrecious). “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.”

Campbell will portray Camilla, who is involved in a steamy affair with the much-younger Hakeem (Bryshere Gray), the potential heir to Lucious’ throne.
