The Empire cast is traveling to Japan on a USO tour

Cookie is taking her boys on tour. Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, and Bryshere “Yazz” Gray are heading to Japan for their first-ever USO tour this December.

Henson, Smollett, and Gray star on Fox’s hit musical drama Empire. Henson plays the no-nonsense Cookie Lyon, and Smollett and Gray play two of her sons — Smollett as the soulful R&B singer Jamal Lyon and Gray as the hot-headed rapper Hakeem Lyon. Off set, both Smollett and Gray are musicians in their own right, so some musical performances on the USO tour seems likely. All that’s been promised so far, however, is two holiday parties hosted by the trio.
