‘Magic Mike XXL’s’ Adam Rodriguez Joins ‘Empire’ Cast

'Magic Mike' Star Adam Rodriguez
There's more to Magic Mike than incredible eye-popping scenes of male strippers.

Empire has added another hunk to its cast with the addition of Adam Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, who you’ll be seeing in all his glory this summer in Magic Mike XXL, has joined the cast of Empire in a recurring roll.

Rodriguez will play native New Yorker and former EMT Laz Delgado, who’s described by producers as “a smooth-talking concert promoter with expert hustler skills… who takes an interest in Cookie.”

Cookie on the prowl is always a fun time.

Previously announced guest stars on the sophomore season include Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, and Ne-Yo.

Season 2 of Empire kicks off Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c.
