Watch “Jimpire”: Hilarious Tonight Show “Empire” Parody (VIDEO)

9-23-2015 1-55-31 PM

Watch the Tonight Show parody of Empire right here. Jimmy Fallon play the patriarch of “Jimpire,” as he chooses which of his proteges will take over the show. Sidekick, Steve Higgins, is hilarious as a Cookie-like character who wants 50% control of the show. Questlove has a secret that he finally reveals.

Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson both have hilarious cameos (Taraji brings her broom!). Who finally is crowned Jimmy’s successor? It’s another surprise cameo, and if you think for a minute, it shouldn’t be a surprise at all.

Empire premieres tonight on FOX at 9 pm! Watch for our recap.
