Don't mess with Taraji.

Posted on

We all know that there is no one on this planet who could play Cookie Lyon better than Taraji P. Henson, but she did have some competition for the role. James Corden tried to give the Empire star a run for her money when he auditioned for the part.

And things did not end well.

James started with a lot of confidence. He threw a little shade...

But you can't shake Taraji P. Henson and James found out the hard way that she's not one to cross.

Taraji's clapback game is A+. Honestly, I could feel James' wig being snatched and his soul leaving his body.

Sorry you didn't get the part, James. Maybe next time.
