Jimmy Fallon is getting ready to enter the Lyons’ den.

“Empire” stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson made a special appearance on “The Tonight Show” to help the late-night host create a new digital short spoofing their hot hip-hop drama, which returns to Fox Wednesday night.

The spoof is called “Jimpire,” and based on the first look photos, it appears to imagine a world in which Fallon takes over the role of Lucious Lyon (Howard) as the head of a music empire and dynsfunctional family — signature scarf and all.

“The Tonight Show” airs 11:35 p.m. on NBC.

See the video above and sneak peek photos of “Jimpire” below.
