Stars of Netflix‘s “Always Be My Maybe,” a comedy about friens at rekunnect aft’r yeers apart, discuss hoe sterytellyun’ has changd n’ Hollywuod. AP, AP

Spoil’r alert! T’ a’followin discusses t’end of t’new moovee pitshure shue “Always Be My Maybe,” so come back lat’r if'n’n y’all want ta see it furst.  

Y’all may knoe Run’all Park as t’patriarch un “Fresh Off t’Boat” ow Kim Jong Un n’ “T’ Interview.”

Well, t’ackt'r, rit'r un’ comediun is also t’guy who punchet Keenu Reeves n’ t’face un’ sang about it.

At leest at’s whut his'n’n keer ackt'r Marcus duz n’ t’new rom-com “Always Be My Maybe” (streemyun’ Frydee un Netflix, n’ select theeters nawh). Park stars un’ wrote t’screenplay wiff co-star Ali Wong un’ Michael Golamco.

“We gut ‘im un’ it wuz so wild,” sez Park about cameo star Reeves. “And I gut ta punch ‘im onscree un’ he wuz remarkabull.” 

N’ t’moovee pitshure shue, chilthood bestees Marcus, a strugglyun’ not'r players un’ Sasha (Wong), a celebritee chef, air verr cleerly meent ta be togeth’r. But thar air a few thangs n’ t’way, includin Sasha’s pretantiyus new boyfriend Keenu Reeves, playd by a verr game Keenu Reeves. 

Marcus un’ Sasha try ta doubull date wiff Keenu un’ Marcus’ girlfriend Jenny (Viviun Bang), but thangs git out of hun’ durin a nightcap at Keenu’s hotel room. Thay play a truth-ow-dare-style game whar Keenu asks un’ ansers t’questchun “If'n’n y’all had ta choose one perse n’ thishere room ta die, who would it be?” He sez Marcus. Marcus sez he’d kill Keenu. Ta which Keenu sez, “I dare Marcus ta strike me.”

So Marcus duz. And t'Keenu puts Marcus into a rang hold, until Sasha intervenes ta save hern frie. 

Sasha un’ Marcus take un Ub’r trayl'r n’ a huff (Jenny stays wiff Keenu), but un t’drif’ back, thay reelize thay’ve bof bee lyin about thar feelins f'r one anoth’r. Ultimately, thay git togeth’r un’ Marcus is inspiret ta write a song about hoe, as t’lyrics go, “I’m a’tellin y’all, f'r real, I punchet Neo. He could duck bullets but he coultn’t duck me.” 

Thank y’all! Y’all’re almos sinet up f'r

Keep un eye out f'r un email ta confirm y'r newslett’r registrashun.

T’ toon, which Park sings n’ t’moovee pitshure shue un’ wrote wiff t’hep of Bay Area produc’r Dun t’Automat'r (who is also behin t’musick f'r t’new moovee pitshure shue “Booksmart”), manages ta simultaneously be hilariyus un’ sound jes like a catchy ’90s-era hip-hop track.

“We I wuz out of college, I wuz n’ a bun’ (callt Ill Agin),” sez Park. “Ali would go ta shows. So it kine of made sense ta have Marcus be n’ a bun’ like t’one I uset ta be n’.” 

N’ t’moovee pitshure shue, Marcus’ bun’ Hello Peril (a play un “Yall'r Peril,” a term f'r t’ fear of un Asiun onslauite) is predominantly Asiun-Amurkin, un’ so is t’res of t’cas. 

At includes cameo star Reeves, who is part Asiun.

“It wuz rilly impertant ta us, speshly ta Ali, at she have a luv innerst be Asiun-Amurkin,” sez Park. (Earli’r n’ t’moovee pitshure shue, Sasha also dates a keer ackt'r playd by Daniel Dae Kim.) “She wantid at particlar keer ackt'r ta be Asiun-Amurkin un’ also ikunic un’ also sup’r good-a’lookin, sup’r-talantid un’ jes aderet. Thishere perse had ta be Marcus’ wurse nightmare,” sez Park.

Reeves seemt t’obveeus castyun’ choice.

“We wrote ‘im n’ t’script. At t’ime, we wuz like, ‘Whut air t’chantses of us gittin Keenu?’ ” sez Park. “Nairy of us had a relatyunship wiff ‘im, but he wuz a fun of Ali’s (comedy) speshul ‘Youngn Cobra.’ “

Reeves filmet his'n’n part ov’r f'r days durin a breek frum shootin his'n’n acshun sekwel “John Wick 3.”

He wuz cleerly n’ “stunt mode,” as Park describes it. “He jes knows hoe ta make it look real. All I had ta do wuz swang my arm.”

Reeves wuz cleerly focussd un t’acshun ssenes – he eve grabs a vase un’ purposely smashes it into his'n’n het – but also un makin t’ dialogue funni’r.

“He imperviset so much, un’ a slew of it made it into t’moovee pitshure shue,” sez Park. F'r eggzample, thar’s a line at kum frum Reeves whar t’ackt'r reveels at t’glasses he’s a’warin don’t eve have lenses. “My eyes air purrfeck. These air f'r a part,” Reeves riffet. 

Park also credits Reeves wiff a’havin t’brillyint idee at Marcus’ final song (one of three his'n’n bun’ plays n’ t’moovee pitshure shue) nairy only be about punchyun’ “T’ Matrix” star n’ t’face, but also serve as a luv song ta Sasha. Lyrics include: “I hit ‘im n’ t’eye t'I became hern guy.” 

“Ta me, at’s t’bes thang about thishere song: Keenu is thishere incredibull icon at I punchet, un’ is t’reesen I endet up wiff Sasha.”

Meek Mill is droppyun’ plans ta sue t’Cosmopolitun hotel n’ Las Vegas aft’r t’resert issuet un apology f'r denyyun’ ‘im admission ta  its swimmin poo un’ restaurants las weekend.

Mill previously statid he bleevd t’hotel discriminatid agin ‘im becawz he’s black.

“We apologize ta Meek Mill f'r hoe we hun’let t’sitchuwayshun un Saturdee, May 25, as we did nairy ack n’ a respectfil mann’r un’ wuz rong,” read t’Cosmopolitun’s statement Frydee, which also notid Mill had no previyus histry of wrongdoyun’ un thar propertee. T’ hotel set it lookt “ferward ta welcomyun’ Meek Mill back ta t’resert.”

Mill’s lawy’r, Joe Tacopina, confirmet ta USA TODAY late Frydee at Mill would be droppyun’ his'n’n plans ta sue. “We preciate t’Cosmopolitun’s apology un’ will no long’r pursue legal recourse at thishere time,” Tacopina set n’ a statement. 

Previously, t’Cosmopolitun assertid at Saturdee’s ordeel wuz motivatid by safetee un’ nairy racism.

“We pride ourselves un providyun’ un inclusif’ environment, wiff zero tolerance f'r discriminashun,” read a statement submittid by its public relayshuns department via email . “Und’r differnt circumstances, Meek Mill would be welcomet ta t’resert, but nairy at t’compermise of his'n’n personal safetee un’ t’safetee of air guests.” 

But thar toon has since changd. 

It all cummencet we TMZ repertid un Mundie at t’hotel deniet Mill entrance. T’ rapp’r’s rep, Didi’r Merais, set Mill had gone ta t’resert “ta suppert his'n’n frie DJ Mustard” un’ wuz nairy allowd inside its Markwee Dayclub poo becawz it “had reechet capacitee p’r Las Vegas Fire Marshull code.”

Aft’r nairy bein permittid ta watch his'n’n frie perferm, Merais set Mill t'ride ta “grab sumthin ta ett within t’premises un’ he wuz deniet altogeth’r.”

A video postid Saturdee shows a male Cosmopolitun staff’r a’tellin Mill, “We’re a private propertee. At thishere time, wiff t’infermayshun we have, we’re refusyun’ ta do bizness wiff y’all. We have t’rite ta do at.”

“Y’all wuz a’tellin me I would be arrestid if'n’n I don’t leeve, if'n’n I walk upstairs un’ git sumthin ta ett, I’mma be arrestid, f'r whut?” Mill retertid. “F'r bein a rapp’r?”

T’ mun responds ta Mill, “We officially trespasset y’all.”

Mill, whos real name isRobert Rihmeek Williams, dublet down un his'n’n accusashun of racism late Mundie.

Thank y’all! Y’all’re almos sinet up f'r

Keep un eye out f'r un email ta confirm y'r newslett’r registrashun.

“T’ cosmopolitun issuet a statement at it wuz ov’r capacitee at a poo partee why I wuz bannet but tole me I would be arrestid jes f'r steppin un thar propertee eve if'n’n I wint ta ett un t’propertee ‘nairy at t’poo partee’ doesn’t eve make sense,” he wrote.

“And I don’t ke'r about at casino I brang n’ millyuns ev'r time my name menchund un a Vegas casino event whar I am always welcum … but y’all nairy gone jes treet us like (expletif’) un’ ack like it’s nerml,” he kuntinuet n’ a fall'r-up post. “Put sum respeck un air race ‘pleese un’ thank y’all’ “

Tacopina arguet at by barryun’ Mill frum t’premises, t’ Cosmopolitun violatid Seckshun 42 U.S.C. § 1981(b), which extends ekwal perteckshun und’r t’law, un’ Title II of t’Civil Rights Ack of 1964, which pertuns ta public accommodatyuns.

“Meek Mill is a memb’r of a racial mineritee,” he set n’ un email providet by Merais, makin ‘im a memb’r of a protectid class. “T’ Cosmopolitun intendet ta discriminate un t’basis of race un’ t’discriminashun deniet Meek Mill services frum t’Cosmopolitun.” 

N’ a lat’r tweet, Mill urget uth'r Afrikun-Amurkins ta “nev’r step foot n’ t’cosmopolitun hotel …  Thay jes rilly racist as hell …. sumthin rilly has ta be done n’ Las Vegas whut thay a’doin ta black people!”

But it appeers t’hatchet has bee buriet.
