‘Empire’ Scoop! Find Out Who Rosie O’Donnell Is Playing

Rosie O’Donnell’s appearance on “Empire” is just a
few weeks away, but Access Hollywood can exclusively reveal who she’ll be
playing.

The actress and TV personality will play Pepper O’Leary, a
former cellmate of Cookie’s.

Pepper owns a popular family bakery and she’s set to
reconnect with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) now that she’s out of the pen. Rosie’s
character is an entrepreneur, “beyond what meets the eye,” according
to the exclusive character description obtained by Access.

She’s also very familiar with the streets of Philly and the
kind of person who isn’t afraid to use force to help a friend out.

Rosie makes her “Empire” debut on November 25 at
9/8c on Fox.
