A few weeks ago, over Abe & Arthurs mac and cheese, some fun friends had dinner with the lovely Gabrielle Union….and we discussed Hollywood’s unimaginative typecasting for women of color that allows Daniel Craig to be cast as a nerdy Swedish writer (in the upcoming Girl With a Dragon Tattoo) but keeps Khandi Alexander’s best work on a Baltimore Corner). Now having gotten to know Gab over the past year, via our pal Deirdre M, one thing that’s so clear is…this woman has crazy untapped physical comedy potential! She’s beautiful but more so….hilarious!

So when she told us about her upcoming Funny-or-Die skit, we were rolling…and the result is lives up to the hype. Only request, I want to see the outtakes : )

PS: Judd Apatow, please take note.
