To say comedic actress Tiffany Haddish has been through the ringer over the past few months is an understatement to say the least, even if majority of it was due to her own deplorable decision-making. However, after getting a form of vindication when the original accuser of that very-viral child abuse scandal recanted her lawsuit and actually apologized to the Girls Trip 2 star, it appears that Haddish is slowly making her comeback.
However, the many reactions to her recent Hollywood return have been rather, well, mixed. Take a look below to see what we mean:
Contrary to what the public is saying though, it seems her peers are standing behind the still-rising comedienne. To prove that, Haddish has just been announced as the star of a new comedic film titled Back On The Strip, and it features an A-list lit cast of comedians past and present, including Kevin Hart, Wesley Snipes, Gary Owen, J.B. Smoove, Faizon Love, Spence Moore II, Bill Bellamy, Raigan Harris and Colleen Camp.
Details on the plot below, via the official press release:
“After losing the woman of his dreams, Merlin moves to Las Vegas to pursue work as a magician, only to get hired as the frontman in a revival of the notorious Black male stripper crew, The Chocolate Chips. Led by Luther – now broke and broken – the older,, out-of-shape Chips put aside former conflicts and reunite to save the hotel they used to perform in while helping Merlin win back his girl.”
Spence Moore II will play the role of Merlin, with Snipes filling in as Luther and Haddish playing Merlin’s mom named Verna. Hart plays a character described only as “Uptight Dad” hilariously, with JB Smoove, Bill Bellamy, Gary Owen and Faizon Love rounding out the cast as Amos, Tyriq, Xander and Desmond, respectively. And yes…expect to see Faizon with his shirt off!
