Stars Ruby Rose, Chrissie Fit and Hana Mae Lee tell TooFab the producer needs no direction when playing himself.
The producer plays himself in the film, which sees the Barden Bellas competing against a trio of a cappella groups on a USO tour for a gig as his opening act. While Khaled was given a script, his co-stars said he didn't necessarily say the lines given to him.
"He did not stick to the script at all," star Chrissie Fit told TooFab. "Everything he said is just DJ Khaled himself, because he's just so hilarious and he's a fun addition to this movie because he's just so organic."
Ruby Rose, one of the actresses who shares multiple scenes with him in the flick, added that Khaled is always on.
"DJ Khaled is literally DJ Khaled and that's it, all of the time," she said. "I think even when he's sleeping, he's like, 'Bless up, they don't want you to sleep!' Like there is no conversation where you feel like you're having a casual chat with him."
"It's like everything is at a 100... it was like you have more energy than every battery in the world put together, I don't know where you get this from," she continued. "I was just fascinated. I think I just stared at him for hours and he was probably like why is that girl looking at me? And I was like, 'I don't know, just bless up dude.'"
Hana Mae Lee had a similar experience working with him as well, saying he brought "a certain type of energy and excitement to the movie."
"We needed somebody that made it their own instead of a character because they would be playing themselves, so I thought that was actually kind of great," she added of his performance.
