Oprah and Common are coming to "Empire."

Shortly after co-creator Lee Daniels said he hoped to recruit Oprah Winfrey -- whom he directed in 2013's "The Butler" -- to play a role on the show, the director revealed to "Access Hollywood" on Thursday night that she would indeed appear.

"Yes. Yeah, she's gonna be on it," he said.

Daniels also said Common, who appeared alongside Oprah in the Oscar-nominated film "Selma," would have a guest spot as well.

"Common, you heard that first," he said to the camera.

This is all very dance-worthy news.
