Megan Thee Stallion is on top of her game and that brought her a pretty nice cameo in the current Disney+ Marvel series She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. Naturally, this kind of story has a lot of layers to it.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, head writer Jessica Gao was very happy about the chance to have Megan Thee Stallion on board for the series. In the end, that cameo was a bit of a shock for them that they could pull down such a big name.
“We didn’t even know that we could dream that big. When we wrote the script, all we knew was we needed to have a female celebrity who was very famous, very successful, and very beautiful. But we didn’t know if it was going to be an actress, or a model, or a musician. And depending on who it was, we knew we’d probably have to tweak the story a little bit to fit whoever we ended up casting.”
The team of writers apparently “went through so many different names” until Jameela Jamil, who happens to play the role of She-Hulk’s nemesis, said that they should give Stallion a call for the job. The two met while filming “Legendary” on HBO Max.
“Jameela one day floated the idea of Megan, and the moment she said that, and the moment we realized that that could be a possibility, we were like, ‘Stop everything. That’s it. The conversation’s done. We only care about Megan now. And if Megan will do it, then that settles it.'”
This was quite a role for Megan Thee Stallion to take on. Only time will tell if it leads to more acting gigs in the future, but it is also apparent that her career trajectory is going to the moon at this point.
If anything, this cameo from Megan Thee Stallion on She-Hulk: Attorney At Law is more proof that it’s all about who you know in the entertainment business.
