Why we love ”Method and Red”’s stars

WHAT THEY’RE DOING The two real-life rappers inhabit a fantasy world where their snazzy suburban McMansion is party central for adoring fans and eager ”hoochies.” But it’s not all fun, games, and babes for the pair. They have to placate their uptight neighbor Nancy (Beth Littleford) and Method’s strict mom, Dorothea (Anna Maria Horsford).

WHY THEY’RE HOT RIGHT NOW The ”How High” stars’ casual charm is perfect for the small screen. EW wrote that the pair is so loose that their ”funniest lines sound improvised.” ”High” praise indeed.

BREAKOUT MOMENT While Method (above left) and Red bring plenty of celebrity swagger to their roles, it was priceless to see their attitude crumble in the face of Dorothea’s tirade against ”hos” in the house.
