Jordan Peele initially wanted Tiffany Haddish to be in "Get Out."
Miss Tiffany Haddish had a chance to be apart of an award-winning film by the mastermind that is Jordan Peele, but decided not to because she doesn't do "do scary movies."
The Girls Trip actress recently paid a visit to The Late Night With Seth Meyers to talk about her upcoming executive producing role in The Last O.G. with Tracy Morgan. During her visit, Jordan came up in the conversation since he too is producing The Last O.G. and they both worked together on Keanu. Apparently, Jordan asked Tiff to audition for Get Out but right away she wasn't really into the idea.
"When he let me read it and asked me to audition, I was like, ‘Man, look, I don’t do scary movies, dog. I don’t do that," she explained. "That’s demonized kind of stuff. I don’t let that in my house.’ And he was like, ‘It’s not really demons.’ And then I was like, ‘That’s the white man trying to take people’s souls out of their bodies and opening their brains. That sounds like some demon stuff to me!'”
Tiff told Jordan she would watch his film in the daytime and not the night time, not really giving context on which role Jordan wanted her to audition for, what do you guys think it could have been?
