It seems as everybody and their mother has joined the cast of Empire in one way or another, and one actor who is eager to get in on the fun is Quincy Brown. While he said he is open to portraying just about any role on the hit Fox drama, he said he draws the line when it comes to playing a gay character — for now.


"I'm a working actor, so no matter what, if an opportunity comes my way, I'm doing whatever," he told TMZ while leaving 1 OAK. When asked if he would be open to playing a gay role, he responded, "Probably not. It's too early in my career. I'm not trying to explore that far, yet. I'm 23, you feel me?"
