The Untold Truth Of Always Be My Maybe
There's no maybe about it: Always Be My Maybe is one Netflix original movie you should definitely watch. Starring Ali Wong and Randall Park, the film has been hailed by critics and viewers alike as a fresh and hilarious success. So just how did this gem of a movie come to see the light of day?
If you thought the on-screen chemistry between Ali Wong and Randall Park was pretty incredible, you're not alone. In fact, part of that might be because the comedic duo goes back a long time, all the way back to college at UCLA, if you can believe that! They met in the late 1990s at a friend's place, where said friend was hosting a fried rice cooking competition, as reported by The Washington Post. The two were also part of the LLC Theatre Company, a comedic performing arts group that Park co-founded.
And in a twist that confirms all too clearly that truth is stranger than fiction, Always Be My Maybe premiered at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, which is where UCLA is located. The surreality of that was not lost on them, either. Wong told Variety that being in Westwood was, quote, "a trip."
