[VIDEO] 'Best Man Holiday' Interviews Pt. 1

Best Man Holiday Exclusive Interviews

After nearly 15 years apart, Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau, Monica Calhoun and Melissa De Sousa reprise their career-launching roles in The Best Man Holiday, the long-awaited next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era of comedy.

Watch Tanya Hart's interview with Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long HERE:

In the closing frames of The Best Man, the groundbreaking movie from then first-time writer/director Malcolm D. Lee, Lance (Chestnut) and Mia (Calhoun) had just gotten married, and Harper (Diggs) proposed to a very shocked Robyn (Lathan).  Murch (Perrineau) found the nerve to break up with Shelby (De Sousa) and begin dating Candy (Hall), the fantasy girl who’d become the love of his life, while the industrious Shelby rebounded and found herself in bed with lothario Quentin (Howard).  And although Jordan (Long) was successful as a television producer, she seemed destined to stay unlucky in love. 

Everything has changed since that day.

Throughout the years, there have been marriages, children and divorces—not to mention all the love and heartbreak that accompany a life well lived—but the group has not been able to manage a proper get-together since Lance and Mia’s wedding.  But that’s all about to be remedied.  When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and passionate romances to be reignited.

As moviegoers grew attached to The Best Man during its theatrical run and subsequent life in home entertainment, Lee grew to understand just how identifiable and beloved the characters he dreamt up were becoming.  The filmmaker admits that he thinks of these friends as an amalgam of archetypes that he’s encountered, not specific persons whom he’s met.  “I know these people, and I love these people,” he says.  “They’re certainly influenced by friends I went to college with and people who I grew up with, but they take on a life of their own.”
