“To be able to work with Roz Ryan, that’s like an aunt in real life,” he explained. “She plays my aunt on the show. On the fourth day she made some collard greens and macaroni and cheese and put it in my trailer.
She came over my house and we sat down and had dinner one night and we spent a lot of time together because I like people that’s older than me.”
It’s fitting that young comedian Lil JJ plays Rickey’s son on the show. “I’ve been knowing [Lil JJ] for about 10 years and him and my son have been knowing each other for 10 years. They were kind of raised together. So now, Lil JJ plays my son, who he knows personally.”
