Watch Empire Star Taraji P. Henson Show Off Some Improv Skills

1 minute read

Taraji P. Henson, who recently won a Golden Globe for her role as Cookie on Empire, stopped by The Tonight Show Wednesday. Some of the topics she discussed included her viral Super Bowl tweet and the pranks she and her co-stars play on each other.

Host Jimmy Fallon also invited Henson to play an acting game that required lots of improvising and quick thinking. Henson is totally game and really seems to enjoy getting back into her Empire character for the first scene. (The main takeaway from that scene, you’ll likely find, is that Cookie would not make a great astronaut.)

Fallon holds his own once it’s his turn to improvise—but we all know who the star of the show is.
