Empire’s first season ended with Taraji P. Henson aka Cookie in a cat fight for the ages. So of course, fearing for his safety, Taran Killam asked Henson if she was anything like Cookie in real life...

which leads to his “Little Boy” self getting slapped. Watch Henson help Killam channel his own Cookie, and take part in drama series Umpire.

Taraji P. Henson hosts ‘SNL’  this week with musical guests Mumford & Sons.
