Fox’s Empire Producer Brian Grazer, took to Good Morning America today (April 7) to promote his new book, A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life. But he also revealed a pipe dream, which is to land a certain rapper for Empire with whom he was worked before. “Eminem, I know, loves our show,” said Grazer, who produced 8 Mile. “I’m going to beg him to get on our show. He and Oprah Winfrey. Somehow I’m going to get one or both them on our show,” the producer said.
Grazer has also had a hand in bringing shows like 24, Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights and others to the public. Eminem, despite his limited acting resume, has long been rumored to be attached to projects, like the forthcoming boxing drama Southpaw. He has made a series of cameos, including bit parts in contemporary comedies like The Interview and Funny People.
