In the Empire episode “Master of What is Mine Own,” while tensions run high between Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious (Terrence Howard) as they run Lyon Family Management, their rival Jeff Kingsley (A.Z. Kelsey) pulls a major power move. “I’m going to make you extinct,” Jeff threatens Lucious. (Remember: Jeff thinks Lucious is his father and blames him for getting his mother Tracy addicted to drugs which has caused his mother to suffer numerous strokes.) When Jeff visits his mother in the hospital, he’s surprised to see Giselle (Nicole Ari Parker) sitting at his mother’s bedside. Giselle is onto Jeff and tells him, “Your birth certificate doesn’t list a father.”
Jeff’s sick mom Tracy Kingsley is portrayed by actress Amanda Detmer. She’s known for her roles on Baby Daddy (Aunt Margot), Necessary Roughness (Jeanette Fiero), Man Up (Brenda Hayden), Private Practice (Morgan Gellman), What About Brian (Deena Greco), and in the films Saving Silverman (Sandy), You, Me and Dupree (Annie), The Majestic with Jim Carrey (Sandra Sinclair, SEE LINK ABOVE), and Drop Dead Gorgeous (Miss Minneapolis), among others. Empire airs Wednesdays at 8 pm on FOX, right before Star.
And here’s the new Barbra Jean, Amanda Detmer. At least Brock had better taste. pic.twitter.com/hJOIanHahD
