Taye Diggs is taking his talents back to the small screen after landing a new role on the FOX hit show, Empire.

According to reports, the Private Practice vet will first appear in season three’s premiere as Angelo Dubois, a city councilman hailing from a respected and affluent New York family. Diggs’ character draws a comparison to President Obama, being that  Angelo could have made a fortune in the private sector with his Harvard law degree, but instead focuses his energies on community organizing and local politics.

Season three of the highly anticipated musical series also features singer Sierra McClain, rapper French Montana and music mogul Birdman as guest stars.

Empire premieres on September 21st, on FOX.
