The Empire family is expanding… again!

Actress Vivica A. Fox is the latest star to be added to Empire's season two lineup. EW reports that the Kill Bill star will be appearing on the Fox hit as the oldest sister of Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), however, the reason she reaches out to her lil sis remains a mystery.

It seems like every other day there's another actor added to the soapy hip-hop drama.

In the past few months, it was announced that music icons Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz and Ludacris will be stepping into the Lyons den along with comedian Chris Rock and actress Marisa Tomei, just to name a few. Wow!

Although we're pumped for all the guest-stars headed our way in season two, we’re a bit worried that all this stunt-casting is going to take away from what made Empire so outstanding in the first place: the juicy Lyon family drama!

Season two of Empire premieres Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET/PT on Fox.

Do you think Vivica will do a good job playing Cookie's older sister? Do you think there's too many guest stars in season two? Share your thoughts with @LeanneAguilera on Twitter!
