Yousif will play an R&B performer named Harry opposite Terrance Howard's detestable Lucious Lyon and Jussie Smollett's Jamal Lyon.

Yousif was born in Detroit, but raised in Sterling Heights and has acted in a couple big budget films such as Scream 4 and LOL, according to the press release, although he's not credited for them on IMDB. His other endeavors include an independent film called 2101 directed by Kyle Misak and a short film called Amnesia.

Yousif's been working on scoring a role on Empire for a while now. He's auditioned for two different roles, and in 2016 made it to the final rounds of a national search for the show's next artist before finally scoring this role.
