“I gotta have the (original) cast. I gotta take them. ‘Cause people love those ladies. They love those characters.”

“[Tiffany Haddish] was a breakout. Everybody else that came in and auditioned for that role, they were playing the character they read on the page. But Tiffany became the character. She took what was on the page and took it to the next level,”

Packer continued.
