Trai Byers Ready to Leave Empire?


Will Trai Byer's character, Andre Lyon, be the next person killed on the Fox series Empire?

He will if Trai has anything to say about it...

Sources close to production tell Page Six
“Trai wants out. He feels that he studied at Yale and he’s a ‘true thespian’ . . . The character is beneath him. He has an idea of himself as being this big Shakespearean actor.”
“At first, being on ‘Empire’ was major for him. But he feels his character is not as important this season, and he hates not being the star. He thinks he has the acting chops of Taraji and Terrence. He doesn’t get how the show benefits him, and he feels he has way too much talent when he’s not the star by any means.”
The source also claims Trai recently fired his agent and manager after losing out on big role he went up for and now nobody even knows how to contact him.

I like Trai. I def think he can be a star on his own but he shouldn't leave Empire until it's officially dead. That's just good business sense.

But he was a nobody before this show. I do think he's a good actor and should always look for more work BUT I don't think the show is beneath him. Its a great stepping stone. Don't get the big head Trai. Terrance and Taraji paid their dues.

Yeh he just needs somebody that loves him to slap the shit out of him, that's all.

Empire is too focused on making Jessie/Jamal the main star of the show just because he is gay. It doesn’t matter. Empire has already jumped shark. I give it two more years before the show is officially canceled.

Trai may be wise to leave now. This show has become a train wreck

I'm thinking this is a contract issue. The show is hugely popular and he's probably getting paid peanuts. I like his character even though I don't. What I mean is I like that his character is an Ivy league graduate, is struggling with a mental disorder and I like the relationship he has with his brothers but I don't think I would like someone like him in real life.

You say all of this AFTER you killed Uncle Vernon, you should have let Malik Yoba kill you. He wants to work.

kill him off. he is not a big part of the show. He will get 1 or 2 parts in movies....then he will be off to reality tv. He better shut up and be glad for the part he has. None of these people learn from watching others................

Be careful what you ask for. He'll be looking like Mo'Nique before long. Out of work with all that 'talent'

Mo'Nique plays loud stereotypes.

This dude reminds me of Keith Hamilton Cobb, who played Noah on All My Children back in the 90s. After he got popular, he thought soaps were beneath him because he was a Shakespearean-trained actor. Well, after he talked bad about Erica Kane and 'em, he hasn't done a whole lot. Anybody who remembers him will tell you he was FINE!

Any actor that can portray a manic depressive the way he does is beyond talented.
