You know her as “Cookie Lyon,” the reigning queen on Fox-TV’s hit show Empire. But in another TV life you also adored her as “Detective Jocelyn ‘Joss’ Carter” on CBS’ Person of Interest. With actress Taraji P. Henson being a very hot commodity on television, it’s no wonder that the folks at CBS figured out a way to bring back the fallen detective to their hit crime drama. According to, Taraji will be reprising her role as Detective Carter for a one-episode guest spot. And, no, she won’t be playing a ghost.
