Lee Daniels‘ new drama Star premieres on December 14 on FOX, after his hit series Empire. Star (Jude Demorest) is a teenager who’s had a rough upbringing in the foster care system. When she turns 18 she tracks down her sister Simone (Brittany O’Grady) and together they form a girl band with friend Alexandra (Ryan Destiny). Star has to contend with Simon’s nasty foster father, Otis Leecan.
Otis is portrayed by Darius McCrary. He’s best known for his role as Eddie Winslow in the sitcom Family Matters with Jaleel White (Steve Urkel). Since then, McCrary has had recurring roles on Anger Management (Donovan), The Young and the Restless (Malcolm Winters), Committed (Bowie James), and Freedom (James Barrett), among others. Star premieres on Wednesday, December 14 at 9pm on FOX, right after Empire.
