The Neighborhood’s Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield Speak 100 Episodes
How do the celebrities of The Neighborhood really feel about hitting 100 episodes?
“Effectively, we got here in collectively in free company and stated, ‘Let’s get 200,’” Max Greenfield tells TVLine. “We’d already finished the hundred factor. We had been each free brokers, like Kyrie [Irving] and [Kevin] Durant,” who teamed up on the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets earlier than being traded to totally different groups this 12 months, “however that is going to finish in a greater means.” And it’s going to finish in a greater means, if Cedric the Entertainer has any say within the matter.
“I’m not going to Dallas,” he deadpans.
Forward of the CBS sitcom’s milestone outing (airing Monday at 8/7c), TVLine hopped on Zoom with the sequence’ central odd couple to mark the momentous event — which contains a crossover with CBS’ The Speak and was directed by Cedric — and to reminisce concerning the first 99 episodes.
Our wide-ranging Q&A sees Cedric and Greenfield replicate on the unique, unaired pilot (which was filmed with a different Dave and Gemma!), their first impressions of one another, and their favourite Calvin-and-Dave storylines. In addition they give flowers to TV wives Tichina Arnold and Beth Behrs, whereas Greenfield remembers a very difficult episode in Season 1 — an episode that will in the end solidify the Dave-and-Gemma relationship.
And since we love stunt casting at TVLine, we couldn’t let this dynamic duo go earlier than asking what it’s going to take to get Cedric’s good pal (and onetime costar) Steve Harvey, or any of the New Woman loftmates, on the present. Because it seems, there was a legit effort to convey Harvey on for the a centesimal episode, however it was a logistical nightmare. As for the New Woman gang, Greenfield cracks that one in all his former castmates turned him down by way of textual content — however not Jake Johnson. Johnson making an look can also show troublesome, although, for causes we’ll let Greenfield reveal within the video above.
The Neighborhood — which has already been picked up for Season 6 — airs Monday nights at 8 pm. Scroll as much as see our interview with the celebrities, then drop a remark under.
