    Marlon has gone from being my least favorite Wayans to now my favorite Wayans. I wish him much success. As for Kerry, Lift is still my favorite movie by her! Outside of Scandal, her projects are hit or miss but I freakin love this woman!!!

      I feel Taraji needs a role like this because she’s yet to show much diversity as an actress when she’s depended on to lead a project. Cookie isn’t as complex as she was in empires first season and it makes Taraji look like she’s only playing an extension of herself.

    Hopefully it will be a multicam sitcom with a studio audience. I hate all these single-cam, no laughter sitcoms that are all over TV these days.
