Terrence Howard Welcomed Chris Rock to Empire by Punching Him in the Stomach

Empire, the most important show of our time, began shooting Monday, and it did so with another high-profile guest-star: Chris Rock. (Alicia Keys and Lenny Kravitz are also slated to make guest appearances.) Showrunner Lee Daniels posted a video on Instagram with both Terrence Howard and Chris Rock outfitted in orange (Lucious is in prison, remember?), where Howard admits to “accidentally” punching Rock in the stomach. In a sly retort, Rock replied, “He does have a reputation.”

Also, anyone get the feeling Daniels is getting to live out a prison fantasy?
