Jay Pharoah is the latest in the very-long line of SNL cast members to get to lead their own film.
The trailer for Jay Pharoah’s film, 2 Minutes of Fame, has been released. In the trailer, we find Pharoah as a struggling comic who has a choice to make between going out and providing for his family and chasing his dream. He opts to, naturally, chase his dream. And in the process, the more successful we see him starting to get and the more doors he gets into, the more tempting it all can be.
The film has quite a few other comics pop up in the process, including Katt Williams and Deon Cole. And as seen in the trailer, Pharoah’s spot-on celebrity impressions, which he is arguably best known for, make up a large amount of his character’s act as well. (We’d truthfully be a little disappointed if one of his impressions didn’t show up in the film).
2 Minutes of Fame is taking good use of the fact that we’re all home looking for stuff to watch by being released on VOD and DVD. The film drops on June 16th.
