Tony Plana, of “Ugly Betty” fame will be joining the cast of “Colony,” a sci-fi drama on the USA Network.
“Colony” takes place in a future dystopian Los Angeles that is occupied by extraterrestrials whose motives are unclear.
For its second season, Plana will be playing a politician that comes off as a person of the people, but is more a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Mariah Carey will be guest starring in her friend Lee Daniels’ hit show “Empire,” which is on 20th Century Fox.
The role for Carey won’t be too much of a stretch as she will be playing a diva going by the name of Kitty. The megastar will be collaborating with Jussie Smollett‘s character Jamal Lyon on a song produced by Taraji P. Henson’s industrious Cookie.
“Empire” will return for its third season on Sept. 21 on Fox, and “Colony” premiere date has yet to be released.
