CATEGORIES Movie NewsIt didn't work for Donald Glover in his efforts to become Spider-Man (and too bad, since that would have been awesome), but that isn't stopping Jay Pharoah from trying his Twitter luck at getting cast in a big Hollywood sequel. The 'Saturday Night Live' featured player -- best known for his impersonations of Denzel Washington, Will Smith and Kanye West -- took to Twitter on the slowest news day of 2011 with eyes on getting fans to support his attempts at starring in the next 'Friday' film. "Jay Pharoah for the new 'Friday' movie tweet #Pharoah4friday #TeamPharoah," he wrote. "Let's get it trending!!!"
As you may have read, Ice Cube's production process of getting the entire original cast back together for another 'Friday.' (Apparently, perhaps, even Chris Tucker.) What role Pharoah would play remains to be seen, obviously, but his involvement could happen -- provided you Tweet your hearts out.
Worldwide, the three 'Friday' films have earned $122 million. Pencil in number four -- perhaps with Pharoah -- for sometime in 2013. Or 2014. Stoners and all.
