Spiff quitting the Johnsons is somehow good for him cos that role will limit his roles in the grand scheme of things.
He needs to leave that role to focus on more general roles than an “imbecile” cos it’s hard to have that role in many films.
He needs to evolve.

The moment you took a wife, I knew you’d quite the role.
What is The Johnsons without the character SPIFF?

The Johnsons is no longer interesting,for the past two weeks they are acting the WAZOBIA restaurant thing,it's super boring for ME…even if Spiff is no longer there,they should restrategize and bring back other members of the family abeg
