If you ever wondered how Mike Epps landed the role of Day-Day in Friday; you’re about to see why. Before the comedy veteran became known as the comedian who took over for Chris Tucker; Epps was a raw stand-up comedian looking for a break. A video recently surfaced online of Epp’s original audition for the second installment of the Friday franchise and the rest is history. In the video Epps along with Ice Cube act out one of the earlier scenes in the film. From the look of the audition Epps brought in tons of Improv that put the entire room and producers in tears.
Last Friday is currently being worked on by Ice Cube.
