The Card Counter, set for a September 10 United States release, centers around a former military interrogator turned gambler who plays high-stakes card games while also haunted by his past.
Haddish plays La Linda, an agent for Oscar Isaac’s professional gambler. In an interview with ABC News, the Night School star revealed that she didn’t like what she heard about gambling agents from some professional gamblers she knows.
‘It sounded like a bunch of slimy people to me. I wasn’t feeling that. I was like, “I’m not making her slimy, that’s for sure,”‘ the comedian said.

Not a dramatist: While the Los Angeles native hasn’t had much experience with dramatic acting, her comedic background seems to be part of the reason Schrader decided to cast her

While the Los Angeles native hasn’t had much experience with dramatic acting, her comedic background seems to have played in her favor.
Director Paul Schrader explained that he likes to cast comedic actors because, ‘You cast a comic, they will break something in a role, even if it isn’t laughs. They will make themselves interesting. It’s in their DNA.’
Haddish isn’t abandoning comedic acting by any means though. The Girls Trip actress is set to appear in Easter Sunday, a film based on stand-up comedian Jo Koy’s life experiences. In addition, she will take a lead role in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, a film about Nicholas Cage becoming an informant for the CIA.
The Grammy-winner is also rumored to be in Disney’s Haunted Mansion Reboot.

The Oscar-winner showered his lover with compliments on the show calling her a ‘queen’ and ‘a wonderful human being.’
‘She’s able to enjoy life,’ the rapper said. ‘The joy that she brings as a comedian and as a person is inspiring me to bring more joy to people through music.’
