Excuse the reference, but this latest scoop has gotten us higher than any illegal substance out there.
After constantly ending up heartbroken due to baseless rumors, we finally have word from Ice Cube that there is indeed a sequel to the 2002 stoner comedy Friday After Next, more than two decades after the original Friday movie was released.
"We're working on one right now," the rapper divulged during an interview on The Late Late Show With James Corden. "We're gonna call it Last Friday."
Although the second (Next Friday in 2000) and third installment were one hell of a ride, both pale in comparison when compared to the original. So if we were to decide who should return in the upcoming film, it would be these seven colorful personalities from Friday. Let's play casting couch.
Anthony Johnson portrayed a small-time crook who loved to mess with Smokey and pretty much every fellow that he stumbled upon. His character's body language is enough to make a whole room crack up.
The dope-starved zealot has the distinction of being the only person to get it on with the drool-worthy Mrs. Parker (more on her later) other than her husband. We'd love to hear more false preaching from this kooky character, except Bernie Mac is no longer with us. May his soul rest in peace.
If Chris Tucker is really making a comeback, it would be blasphemous for Faizon Love not to make a cameo. Apart from Craig, the foul-mouthed dealer and his glorious curls are responsible for Smokey's character development.
The bike-riding, cross-eyed brute is the quintessential tormentor, who is intimidating and comical at the same time. Tommy 'Tiny' Lister wasn't around in Friday After Next. A rude welcome party is only fitting.
Even at 66, Kathleen Bradley could reprise her role as the scantily clad MILF from across the street.
Angela Means must've not expected her character's rise as a meme, which has since become the gold standard for sending someone packing. All she had to do was be unbearably needy to set up one of the most iconic phrases in the history of comedy.
It wouldn't be a Friday movie without Craig's hilariously blunt dad, played by the effective John Witherspoon. Mr. Jones was in every installment, and for good reason—somebody always has to neutralize his son's deadpan humor.
