Amongst the memorable characters that will be cracking jokes in the shop, Common and Nicki Minaj will join Cedric The Entertainer, Sean Patrick Thomas and Ice Cube for the third installment of the franchise. The plot of the film has not been confirmed yet. However, unlike his most recent roles in films like Selma, Run All Night and his new role in Suicide Squad, we’ll probably see Common master the clippers and crack on ol’ man Eddie. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj will play “Draya,” the sassy hairdresser.
