For those of you waiting for Tracee Ellis Ross and her good friend Kanye West to grace us once again with their awesomeness, wait no more! It seems the time could be near.
The “Black-ish” Star has requested the presence of Mr. West, in what could only be, “the Dopest episode of the season!” (Yeezy Voice)
“I think he should be a doctor working with my character, Rainbow”, the “Girlfriends” star tells THR. “Dre (Anthony Anderson) gets worried she is going to have an affair with him, but Rainbow has no interest.”
The reunion will be the first time the two have shared the screen since Tracee’s appearance in Kanye’s 2004 video “Kanye’s Work-Out plan” as Fifi Labeouf. She also teamed up with the rapper/producer as Nia Long’s feisty, Home girl in the “Touch the sky” video.
Turns out, Kanye isn’t the only cameo Tracee would like to see appear on the hit show this season. The cast also wants other heavy hitters such as, Justin Bieber, Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, Kirsten Wiig, Robert Deniro, and Morgan Freeman to slide through as well.
Also, according to the shows creator, Kenya Barris, a Modern Family/ Blackish crossover could be on the horizon too.
“I’ve asked Steve [Levitan],” Barris said. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen this year, but I would love it.”
Yara Shahidi, who plays Tracee’s eldest daughter Zoey, agreed.
“With two crazy families combined, the craziness would only escalate,” she said, as the cast also looking to pair-up with ABC’s other Wednesday family comedies, including 1980s-set “The Goldbergs”.
Tune in for all the surprises in store for the Johnson family this year! Blackish airs on Wednesdays at 9:30 pm on ABC.
