Are We There Yet?
Does Ice Cube appear in this spinoff of the film franchise? Yes, yes he does, but he only plays a recurring role (in addition to being an executive producer). Ice Cube is not the poor man at the center of the new family in question here, that part is played by Terry Crewes, with Essence Atkins stepping into the female lead role (Nia Long in the films). Tonight we get back-to-back episodes including the series premiere and that means you can get in on the ground floor... well, the ground floor if you don't include the films, which we're not right now.
