The trailer for Hustlers, which features a star-studded cast including Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Constance We, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, and Lili Reinhart has officially been released. The trailer for the film dropped and was previewed by Lopez during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
J-Lo discussed working with the wide array of celebrities in a recent interview.
“With their acting ability?! First of all, they were all great, let me tell you that,” she said in an interview with Billboard.com. “That’s not gas, that’s not bullshit. They were all awesome. So that was fun, because sometimes, you can get somebody and you’re like, ‘Uh oh.’ And I’m so serious about the acting. So I’m like, ‘Nah uh.’ But they were great. Who surprised me the most? I think Keke.”
She expanded on how impressed she was with Keke’s performance throughout the interview saying, “Because she was great at improv, and not everybody has that knack, you know what I mean? But they were all great. I expected Cardi to be good, I expected Lizzo to be good, but I didn’t know enough about Keke. I had seen her audition tape. I did a little bit of research on her when they were thinking [about her role]. We went through so many people for that part, so many people.
“But when I saw her — I had watched a couple of interviews of her and stuff like that — I was like, “This girl has something. She has personality.” And she was awesome. We had fun from the first scene. I was like, ‘OK. We’re gon’ have fun!'”
Hustlers is set to hit theaters on September 13.
