Taraji P Henson And Terrence Howard Call For Jussie Smollet's Return To Empire

Embattled actor Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” cast mates called for his return to the show after he was cut from the end of its fifth season.

On Wednesday, Deadline obtained and published a letter from two of Smollett’s co-stars, Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, to numerous executives to bring Smollett back to the show.

In their plea, which was also signed by cast mates, Smollett’s colleagues defended his personal and professional reputation:

Throughout Empire’s five seasons working with Jussie and watching how he has conducted himself throughout this traumatic event, we have come to know not just the character Jussie portrays, but also truly come to know Jussie’s personal character. He is kind. He is compassionate. He is honest and above all he is filled with integrity. He is also innocent and no longer subject to legal uncertainty with the criminal charges against him having been dropped. We are confident in his lawyer’s assurance that the case was dismissed because it would not have prevailed.
