Fans and critics of the hit Fox television series were probably taken aback during Wednesday night’s episode when President Obama seemed to make a cameo appearance over the phone.


Lucious Lyons (played by Terrence Howard) appeared to accept a call from the President of the United States. The President was responding to controversial comments that were made by Lyons’ youngest son, Hakeem (played by Bryshere Gray) about Obama being a sellout.

A video filmed and posted by one of Hakeem’s friends was posted online and went viral, generating a considerable amount of press and negative backlash.

The President’s voice was not heard on the other end of the phone, but Terrence Howard delivered a convincing performance to make it seem as if he was actually talking to someone.

In character as Lucious Lyons, Howard even made a comment letting President Obama know that he did not have to “use that kind of language” shortly before the President abruptly hung up the phone.
