Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett [[ smuh-LETT ]] is taking the stand in his trial for allegedly staging a hate crime attack. He’s accused of lying to police, but claims he’s a real victim of a real crime. Prosecutors called two brothers to the stand last week who worked as extras on the show “Empire” before Smollett was written off. They testified they were paid to carry out a fake attack in Chicago.
