Find out who he's playing!

Sadie Gennis

Taye Diggs is joining Empirefor the Fox drama's third season.

The Private Practice alum has landed the recurring role of Angelo Dubois, a city councilman from a well-respected New York family, TVLine reports. But don't let Angelo's pedigree and wealth fool you. He isn't as concerned with money as he is with community organizing and local politics, noble passions which have already sparked comparisons between his character and Barack Obama.

Diggs will make his Empire debut in the Sept. 21 premiere. He joins fellow Season 3 guest stars Sierra McClain, French Montana and Birdman.

Are you excited Diggs has joined Empire?

Empire returns on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9/8c on Fox.
