Porsha girl you are scene stealer and don’t give me that face!
One character that might be as koo-koo and fabulous as Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) on Fox’s breakout drama Empire is Ta’Rhonda Jones. She is Cookie’s loyal and outrageous assistant Porsha. The creative forces behind Empire, Danny Strong and Lee Daniels are very aware they struck TV casting gold when they found Ta’Rhonda Jones.
During a conference call with reporters on Thursday, Strong was asked which character he’d love to see get their own spinoff, and without hesitation, the co-creator and executive producer said, “Don’t you think Porsha?!” Strong then explained, “Because she is a comic genius…she’s hilarious. I believe it’s her first acting job.”
Empire’s finale airs next Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
