Gray is an actor on Fox’s “Empire,” on which he plays Hakeem Lyon, the brother of Jamal Lyon, who is portrayed by Jussie Smollett, who was written off the show after his arrest on charges he faked a hate crime against himself. Prosecutors later dropped all charges against Smollett after he performed 16 hours of community service and forfeited his $10,000 bail but admitted no guilt.
