Hole frontwoman Courtney Love already has a recurring role in the ongoing season of Sons of Anarchy, and now she's taken on a new acting gig in the upcoming Fox series Empire.

Love will be playing a rock star name Elle Dallas, which we presume won't require too much method acting on her behalf. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Love will be a "recurring guest star."

Empire is a hip-hop-oriented musical drama. Starring Terrance Howard (Crash, Hustle & Flow, Iron Man), it's about a former street thug who has become the head of a company called Empire Entertainment. As his health goes into decline due to ALS, his family members vie for the role of his successor.

Empire is set to premiere in 2015. Watch a trailer for the series below, and learn more about the show here.
