Were you one of the 13.8 million viewers who tuned in to "Empire" last week?

Have you ever felt like you know actor Jussie Smollett, who plays Jamal, from somewhere? Well, he's a former child actor and so is his sister, whose work you probably remember a little better. Acting runs in the Smollett family, as Jussie's younger sister is none other than Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who played Michelle's friend Denise on "Full House."
