It’s also an interesting choice because the Mr. Softee driver isn’t really a role in the original play. The Mr. Softee driver and the Piragua Guy have an ongoing rivalry throughout the play in a minor subplot, but the Mr. Softee driver himself is never actually seen. The cameo we see in the trailer here could literally be the entire appearance by Christopher Jackson, since the character isn’t really part of the story. Of course, it’s also possible that the movie version of In the Heights has added more to this part of the story and we’re going to see even more from Jackson.
