Playing Jennifer Lopez Talks Potential 'Empire' Cameo: I'd Want to Be Cookie's Friend!

Could J. Lo be joining Lucious and Cookie at Empire Entertainment?

According to her sit-down with ET, that would be news to her, but she would welcome the opportunity!

"I don't know anything about it," J. Lo tells ET's Kevin Frazier. "I would."

As for what her character would do on the show, the 45-year-old actress and musician is understandably apprehensive to take on Taraji P. Henson's Cookie.

"Am I supposed to go up against Cookie?" said J.Lo. "I'd rather be her friend!"

For our money, there might be no one BETTER to take on Cookie than "Jenny From the Block" herself! Not to mention, J. Lo is basically a music icon at this point, and seems like the perfect fit for a show so heavily about the music.

That wasn't the only hint Jennifer dropped while promoting her upcoming animated movie, Home. J.Lo also talked about a possible collaboration with her co-star and daughter in the movie, Rihanna.

Apparently scheduling is the only thing stopping that dream duo, as J. Lo says that "she's a busy girl, I'm a busy girl too." She added that "we're in the same movie now... kind of!"

Let's make it happen, people!

It would add one more to the list of J. Lo's bomb collabs, the most recent being when J. Lo showed up to perform with Anna Kendrick on her own song "Booty" during the upcoming LL Cool J-hosted show, Lip Sync Battle. Watch the video below!
