#FreeishFavs | Yvonne Orji enrolls in ‘Night School’ with Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart for her feature film debut
Yvonne Orji’s character, Molly, from Issa Rae’s Insecure has quickly become a fan favorite among audiences. Orji’s portrayal of Molly has impressed critics and fans alike, especially since its technically sis’ first acting gig on a major network.
Orji made money moves this week by joining the cast of Night School, the next film from Will Packer and Malcolm D. Lee. It is based on a story by Kevin Hart, who is also starring along with Girls Trip standout Tiffany Haddish.
The film follows a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes in preparation to take the GED exam.
It’ll be our fav’s debut in a feature film. Aside from this and Insecure, Orji also has First Gen lined up, a movie she’s starring in and writing, executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and David Oyelowo. It is about Orji’s character Joanna, a first generation Nigerian-American who has a career in medicine but leaves it for stand-up comedy.
