Former Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) is getting a love interest this fall on the upcoming season two of the smash hip-hop soap opera, Empire!
According to Variety, Sidibe’s Becky will catch the eye of a new character named J -Poppa, who’s described as a handsome, easygoing guy. J-Poppa also develops a strong connection with Andre (Trai Byers).
J-Poppa will be played by actor Mo McRae. Mo is currently a series regular on TNT’s Murder in the First, and had a major recurring role in Sons of Anarchy. He also recently appeared in the Reese Witherspoon motion picture, Wild.
Being cast on the Fox hit television series re-teams McRae with Empire creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, since Mo appeared in their motion picture, The Butler.
