“The Last OG” sees Morgan as an ex-con named Tray who gets out of prison after 15 years to realize his old life — and his beloved city of Brooklyn — has become unrecognizable. Meanwhile, Haddish is Shay aka Shannon, the love of his life who is now living with a white guy (Ryan Gaul), raising the twins he never knew existed.

Although Haddish has been on a hot streak of late, she noted that when she auditioned for “The Last OG,” she wasn’t sure she was going to get it.”

“I think at first they were a little afraid I was too goofy and silly and wouldn’t be able to do it — but I brought it,” she said.

Her mother was probably on crack, she didn’t know her daddy. Maybe Tray didn’t want me to see him in jail no more. This is, in my mind, what happened to Shannon.”

Samsung's C-Lab adds character to AI at SXSW .
Samsung's C-Lab has made a name for itself over recent years with a bunch of offbeat concepts .&nbsp;The first concept on show was Toonsquare, which uses AI to convert sentences into cartoons. Like Samsung's AR Emoji, the process starts with a selfie but instead of creating a creepy 3D version of you, it generates a cutesy chibi. A few of us tried this out, and each time the character was a convincing (if unflattering) representation.
