Peeples' Craig Robinson and David Alan Grier take the Personality Test

Posted on

David Alan Grier Craig Robinson

In the new movie Tyler Perry Presents Peeples hitting theaters this weekend, The Office‘s Craig Robinson stars as a man who meets the parents of the woman (Scandal‘s Kerry Washington) he’d like to marry. It does not go well — unlike when Robinson and David Alan Grier, who costars as the potential father-in-law, dropped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. You really don’t want to miss their reenactment of a deleted scene from E.T., which begins at 1:58 in the video below.

Bonus question!

When do you yell at the TV?

David Alan Grier: I yell during sports. And I’ll tell you a show I like, Ridiculousness. It’s a stupid show on MTV, but I love that show. I bust out laughin’ and I yell at the TV. I love Portlandia. I laugh out loud at that.

Craig Robinson: It’s a funny show.

David Alan Grier: Portlandia means so much to the black community. [Both laugh]

Craig Robinson: I don’t get to watch television, because I don’t have a television in my small apartment in Los Angeles.

David Alan Grier: Why would you say that, just to make it like you’re all intellectual and I’m, like, a whore to media?

Craig Robinson: I wasn’t saying it like that. You’re the only one who took that from that.
