Missy Elliott to Appear on ‘Star’
Missy Elliott has landed a role on the Fox series Star. The struggling Empire spin-off has booked the rapper in a recurring role where she essentially plays herself: a recording artist and music producer. Pumpkin, Missy’s character, will have an extended arc that should begin around the mid-season mark and extend until the end of the season. Missy will also perform on several episodes and contribute original songs to the show’s upcoming soundtrack.
In addition to Missy, Fox also announced upcoming guest guest appearances that include comedian Rickey Smiley, Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sudibe.
