SNL Introduces White Character On Empire

Submitted by on March 8, 2015 – 5:38 pmNo Comment

As we’ve reported before, Fox’s Empire is becoming not just a hit, but a sensation as it actually increases viewers every week. And it’s no small feet that a show with an almost entirely black cast has found such success, and on a broadcast network to boot.

But Saturday Night Live thought that getting pidgeon-holed as a “black show” might be holding the series back. So they introduced a white character: Chip, the office manager.

Played by this week’s host Chris Hemsworth decked out in khakis and a high schooler’s backpack, poor Chip is tasked with trying to take care of mundane things like office birthday parties and expense reports amidst all the ratchet behavior at Empire Entertainment.
