Billy Crystal and Tiffany Haddish’s team-up is the unexpected friendship of Hollywood in the new trailer for the film Here Today.
Crystal, 73, plays veteran comedy writer Charlie Burnz who meets New York singer Emma Payge (Haddish, 41), only to find himself learning something new from the free-spirited vocalist. Many forget that Billy Crystal started his entertainment career as a stand-up comedian and had nothing but flattering words for Haddish.
“When she said to me, ‘Just tell me what you want. Help me get to where Emma needs to go. I totally trust you,’ I knew she would be great,”- Crystal tells People Magazine.
The film was also co-written by Crystal and his good friend, original Saturday Night Live writer Alan Zweibel. It’s based on a short story, The Prize, also written by Zweibel.
Here Today is in theaters on May 7.
