Empire” has added another series regular to Season 4, Variety has learned.

Carter will reprise his role as Warren Hall, an attorney by day and an aspiring musician by night who is Jamal’s new love interest — but unbeknownst to Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Warren is part of the Dubois family, aka the Lyons’ enemies.

Prior to appearing on “Empire” last season, Carter had a guest arc on USA’s “Shooter.” His film credits include “Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and “Think Like a Man Too.” As a singer-songwriter, he has worked with Quincy Jones and a number of recording artists, including Patti LaBelle, Beyonce, and Celine Dion. He is repped by Momentum, Semler Entertainment, and Loeb & Loeb.

In addition to Carter, Rumer Willis was also promoted to a series regular for Season 4. Other new additions to the cast are Willis’ real-life mother, Demi Moore, and Forest Whitaker.

“Empire” returns Wednesday at 8 p.m., followed by the season premiere of “Star” on Fox’s new Wednesday night block. The premiere episodes will be a crossover event.
