“The Best Man Holiday“ the sequel to the Malcolm D. Lee romantic comedy. All nine cast members – Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall – reprise their career launching roles.
While the college friends reunite over the Christmas Holidays on the big screen, the cast of friends reunited behind the scenes.
“Being able to hang out socially, looking forward to the time when the cameras are rolling, and the time when the cameras aren’t rolling, makes the entire experience truly enjoyable.” Diggs said the atmosphere on set didn’t feel like work.
His on screen wife, Sanaa Lathan, had a lot of fun on set: “We would have ‘Voice’ parties. The only thing that would air on TV was ‘The Voice,’ so everyone would get together and watch the show.”
“We were like college kids,” in a good way said Long. “We would have intense conversations about everything. We would get into debates about love and relationships. It was great!”
“We didn’t want to be labeled just for the holiday season.” Perrineau said the group liked “‘Best Man Unfinished Business’, the name of Harpers’ (Diggs) book.” But Lathan is holding to her opinion and says she “still doesn’t like the title.”
The movie poster got it right. Times change. Friendships don’t.
‘The Best Man Holiday‘ opens nationwide next weekend on November 15.
