The Breakout Star Of #Empire Was In #TheMightyDucks
Quack, quack, quack, Jamal.
1. Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal Lyon on Empire, is the breakout star of the hit Fox series.
Even though we all know Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie Lyon, is the star.
2. But what many might not know about the newly beloved actor is that he starred in The Mighty Ducks in 1992.
He played Terry Hall, younger brother of the more outspoken Jesse Hall (played by Brandon Quintin Adams), for the Ducks (formerly known as District 5).
3. In the movie, he was facepalming before it was a thing and making the best “duh” face of all time.
4. But Terry shared a lot with Jamal…
5. Like standing up to authority, i.e. here’s Terry giving his coach, Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), some serious and warranted attitude, much like Jamal did with his father Lucious (Terrence Howard).
13. Watch Jussie Smollett on Empire, which airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
