During an interview with The Hollywood Life in May 2019, Johnson was asked who he would love the most to play his dad in reel life. The actor said,
Well, I mean Morgan Freeman obviously. But if I was to not say the obvious, I'd maybe say Mahershala Ali. Me and Mahershala met on Luke Cage. I think he would be a great dad for me.
Camrus continued, "Mahershala Ali might be my number one choice. Chadwick Boseman might be too young. Ernie Hudson might be a cool dad, too."
