For Lenny Kravitz’s latest acting role, he doesn’t need reach very far: On Star, he plays a fictional rock god with an ambitious young daughter. In a new behind-the-scenes featurette, Kravitz and creator Lee Daniels (Empire, The Butler, Precious) discuss the similarities between the actor and Roland Crane, the character he plays.
“The character of Roland Crane is nothing new to me,” Kravitz explains. “We are musicians, but he’s not supportive of what his daughter is doing.”
Kravitz’ own daughter Zoe has risen through the ranks of young Hollywood, appearing in a number of blockbusters and independent films in recent years. In the featurette, co-star Queen Latifah praised Kravitz’ willingness to play “selfish” on the series.
Star premieres December 14 at 9:00 pm on Fox.
