Producer-director Lee Daniels says he's trying to get Oprah Winfrey to guest star on Fox's Empire.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniels admits to making multiple calls to Oprah Winfrey about
making an appearance on the hit show.

"I tell him: 'Lee, it's not enough that you've taken every viewer possible on Wednesday night. Now you want me to leave my own network?'" Winfrey said.

To that, Daniels howls: "I'm wearing her down!"
