30 Things You Didn't Know About House Party Even Though You've Seen It 50 Times

9. -Reginald Hudlin and his brother Warrington Hudlin, also a producer on the movie, played the two burglars who get chased out of the house by the dog.

10. Stab, Pee-Wee and Zilla, the bullies who seriously terrorize Kid throughout the movie, were played by Paul Anthony, Bowlegged Lou and B-Fine from the real-life rap crew Full Force. Previously known mainly as producers and writers on the music scene, House Party made them into famous faces.

“Man, we had no idea [how big it would be],” Anthony told Vlad TV’s DJ Vlad in 2017. “I remember like it was yesterday, I was writing and I got a call from a guy named Reggie Hudlin.” Hudlin’s friend Robert Ford had put them in touch because the bully roles were described in the script as “Jheri-curled, musclebound guys like Full Force.” Anthony figured Hudlin thought of him and B-Fine from their roles as Enforcer #1 and #2 in 1985’s Krush Groove, about a manager who gets in over his head borrowing money to finance his groups, which starred Blair Underwood (in his first movie) and numerous hip-hop and R&B stars playing themselves.

11. Lou, a theater buff since childhood, told DJ Vlad that the script originally had the bullies written “kinda plain, kinda bland, kinda like with no personality.” So, Lou said, he rewrote a scene—including swapping names with Zilla, so that Zilla, he of the ripped white shirt, was played by B-Fine, and Lou took the role of the tracksuit-wearing Pee-Wee. He added Pee-Wee’s high-pitch nasally voice and his repeated promise to “kick your f–king aa-ass” and showed it to the Hudlin brothers. “We killed it and Warrington Hudlin looked at us and said, ‘Keep it!’…. After that, I changed all of our f–king scenes in there,” with his brothers’ help, Lou exclaimed. “They loved everything we did,” Anthony assured DJ Vlad.
