It seems like there’s a market for funny women for sketch comedies right now. Just yesterday we learned that Saturday Night Live was looking for female comedians. And today news broke that the upcoming reboot of In Living Color has cast two women.
Deadline shared the news that Kali Hawk and Jennifer Bartels have joined previously cast Jermaine Fowler and Lilrel Howery in Fox’s second-go-round with the late night sketch comedy series In Living Color. The two half-hour specials are set to tape next month, and will air sometime after that (possibly May).
Of the two newly cast women, Hawk is likely to be more recognizable. She played the outspoken girlfriend Trudy in Couple’s Retreat, and was more recently seen showing off her “love is eternal face” in Bridesmaids. She also had a role in Get Him to the Greek. Bartels’ credits are minimal, but she’s (un)credited as a “strange woman” in the upcoming Men in Black III film.
