On Empire, while Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) is building her new empire without ex-husband Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), she needs all the help she can get to promote her new artists. So she meets with a concert promoter named Laz Delgado. And of course, he’s fine. During their interview in Cookie’s office, Delgado says: “I’ve been promoting concerts for a lot of years, Cookie. I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty.” If you think Cookie interprets that as a sexual innuendo, you know your Cookie!
Laz Delgado is portrayed by Adam Rodriguez. He’s best known for his roles in the Magic Mike movies (Tito), and on the TV shows CSI: Miami (Eric Delko) and Ugly Betty (Bobby Talercio). He’s currently starring in The Night Shift (Dr. Joey Chavez). Fun facts about Rodriguez: before becoming an actor, he was a stock broker, and he appears in Jennifer Lopez’s 2009 video “If You Had My Love” (see below). Empire airs Wednesdays at 9pm on Fox.
