Cast Why Him?



Trivia Why Him?

Keegan-Michael Key and Zack Pearlman previously worked together on Key's show 'Key and Peele' during the 'Substitute Teacher' skit. According to Megan Mullally, the cast was given free access to improvise as much as they wanted to and eventually 240 hours of films was shot on camera, which had to be trimmed to 90 minutes for the final film. The bedroom scene between Megan Mullally and Bryan Cranston was not in the original script, but suggested by Mullally during rehearsals.
