It’s not the first time that Terrence Howard and Lenny Kravitz have been in the same project, however the clip that Fox released today of the Empire star and the Star regular doesn’t mean a crossover is in the works for the Lee Daniels co-created series. The sit-down between the two The Butler alums is set to appear tonight in Empire‘s Season 3 midseason finale – see the clip above.

Despite the melding of the two worlds in the scene, I’ve learned that  there are no plans to have a full blown crossover between the two shows. There were preliminary discussions at one point of a more significant overlap, but schedules did not work out between the two shows which are shot in Chicago (Empire) and Atlanta (Star).

It doesn’t take a marketing genius to figure out that the point of the tease clip is to push the millions of viewers of tonight’s 8 PM Empire midseason finale to Star, which is having its preview debut at 9 PM, in Empire‘s regular time slot. New episodes of Star will resume in the show’s regular slot on Wednesdays, beginning January 4 at 9 PM. The rest of Empire‘s third season returns in the spring with more of the Lyon’s saga.
