Taraji P. Henson on Hosting ‘SNL': ‘I’m a Legend’.

I’m a legend.” Only the 10th black woman to ever host the late-night comedy show, Henson follows other legends like Oprah, Halle Berry, and most recently, Scandal star Kerry Washington. Fans are excited to see what types of characters the Oscar-nominated actress might play on the show, but it sounds like there won’t be another parody of her brash and bossy Empire character, Cookie Lyon. “They’ve pitched me a couple sketches and I didn’t hear one Cookie sketch.

I think they already did it,” she says, referencing the Empire parody the show did when Chris Hemsworth hosted on March 7. “I must have watched that thing 10 times,” Henson says of the sketch. “That’s when I knew I’d made it. I wasn’t ever supposed to go and see that, [because of] the things that he was talking about, but I did because I loved it.” She can’t spoil anything from SNL, but Henson did hint at what she’s hoping to see for her character on Empire as Fox’s hit hip-hop drama plans out its second season.
