I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988) Poster


Jump to: Cameo (1)
When Slammer (Jim Brown) asks Jack Spade (Keenen Ivory Wayans), "What makes you think you can be a black hero?", Spade responds by saying, "I'm an ex-football player," and Slammer backs off. Brown played football for the Cleveland Browns from 1957-1965 and is in the NFL Hall of Fame. 'Bernie Casey' was also a professional football player before becoming an actor, as was 'Fred Williamson', another movie hero.
In the scene where Kalinga's wife (Eve Plumb) meets Jack Spade and the kids want to watch TV after finishing their homework, the theme song to The Brady Bunch (1969), in which Plumb played Jan Brady, can be heard in the background.
Producer Peter McCarthy persuaded John Cusack, with whom he had worked before, to appear in the last big shoot-out scene as a delivery boy. He was shot multiple times and was burned by several of the nearly 20 squibs attached to his body. They didn't use the scene.
While Isaac Hayes and Jim Brown were on their way to the garage for their meeting, "Grazing In The Grass" by Friends of Distinction was playing on the car radio. In real life, Brown managed the group in the late 1960s.
Fred Williamson was offered a part in the film, but was against parodying the screen persona he created during his career of the cool hero.
Eddie Murphy came up with the original idea and the title for the film during a conversation with Keenen Ivory Wayans. Wayans asked Murphy's permission to use the idea.
Ron O'Neal was offered a role but turned it down because he had tired of being typecast as Super Fly (1972). O'Neal later appeared in the television spin-off Hammer, Slammer, & Slade (1990).
