By now the buzz has spread that director and writer Malcolm D. Lee has done it again. In 1999, Lee awed audiences across the world with his début of the movie, The Best Man. Well, it’s 13 years later and fans are anxiously awaiting the sequel, The Best Man Holiday. Now, not only is this a sequel but it’s a reunion. Yes, Lee pulled off getting all the original cast back in character. Do you know how hard that can be?
Of course the cast has made their media rounds and I have devoured every bit of it. It’s great watching how the cast has matured as people and as actors/actresses in the business. This week JET Magazine released their latest issue with an interview from cast members Taye Diggs, Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan. They shared deets on the movie, what it took to get it made, and opportunities for African-American actors in Hollywood.
Just for my Memphis readers, you can now enter to win a pass for two to the advance screening of Best Man Holiday, on Tuesday, November 12, at 7pm at the Malco Paradiso. We have 10 passes so enter now and say hi if you see me there!
