    “50 Cent is a comedian,” Henson said. “He loves to push buttons. He’s a funny guy. I never took offense to it. If anything, I thought he was trying to jab at him,” she said pointing to Howard. “He’s jealous of his looks.”

    Howard also chimed in saying, “50 is my monster man. We served jail time together in his film [‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’], we were naked together. I love the fact that we’re both pushing the envelope with our shows.”

    'Empire': How Lee Daniels Made TV's "Black 'Dynasty' "

    Casting became key, and Daniels initially had his heart set on Wesley Snipes and Taraji P. Henson. Snipes' reps couldn't come to a deal, and Henson, 44, was eager to reteam with her Hustle & Flow co-star Terrence Howard, 45, who already had been talking to Daniels about a potential film project. Still, Daniels made the Oscar-nominated actors test for the parts. As the project, which Daniels has taken to calling "Black Dynasty," moved through the development process, it became a favorite of then-20th TV chairman Gary Newman, earning it the informal title of "Gary Newman's Empire," according to his partner, Dana Walden.
