Paula Jai Parker
A Cleveland, Ohio native, Parker has been featured heavily in comedies and dramas for the latter part of two decades. In Friday, she played Craig’s schemingly childish girlfriend, Joi. Always thinking that he was cheating on her, Parker’s antics helped move along the story as Craig developed into a well-rounded man gaining responsibility for his life. Since Friday, Parker was featured on The Wayans Brothers show, and starred alongside Terrence Howard in Craig Brewer’s Hustle & Flow. Up next for her is the 2014 comedy, Taco Shop, where she plays Eve alongside Tyler Posey and Eric Roberts.
