Taraji P. Henson’s Holiday Special Includes a Cameo of Tyler Perry as Madea (PHOTOS)
The woman who brought us Empire‘s Cookie is about to ring in the holidays with the Fox Christmas special Taraji’s White Hot Holidays. Taraji P. Henson will host the star-studded bash, and one of the guests will be Tyler Perry. In the exclusive images above and below, Henson and Perry appear in a sketch together, with Perry playing his signature character Madea.
Taraji shared hosting duties with her Empire costar Terrence Howard last year for Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays, but this time she has the gig to herself, and she’s sure to hold nothing back. The music/variety show special will include a slew of popular guests like Taraji’s Empire costars Jussie Smollett and Taye Diggs as well as musical guests like Missy Elliot, Pharrel Williams, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, TLC and more.
