[ # ] David Alan Grier plays Jamie Foxx’s dad in Dad Stop Embarrassing Me
March 18th, 2021 under David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, Netflix


Back in 1991, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier worked together on In Living Color. Now 30 years later, they are reuniting on Netflix’s Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

Instead of playing equals as they did on the sketch show, this time around, Grier is playing Foxx’s dad on the sitcom. I would love to know how that phone call went. Did Foxx call him and say, “Dude, I have the perfect role for you on my new show.” Then he told him what it was. Grier was like, that won’t be believable, so Foxx told him to grow a big bushy grey beard. Do you think it worked?

The sitcom is not just about them. Foxx plays a successful businessman and bachelor who suddenly becomes a full-time dad to his daughter Sasha (Kyla-Drew). He is going to need all the help he can get, and he will get that from his dad and sister (Porscha Coleman). But who is going to help Sasha adjust to all of them?

We will just have to tune into Netflix on April 14th to find out. I don’t know about you, but I will be watching because that trailer had me laughing out loud.
