Almost 15 years since the original, Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau and Terrence Howard reprise their roles for a new generation in the follow-up to 1999′s ‘The Best Man.’
Opening in theaters November 15, ‘The Best Man Holiday’ — also starring Sanaa Lathan, Regina Hall, Monica Calhoun and Melissa De Sousa — explores how easy it is for rivalries and romances to be ignited amongst the group of college pals over the Christmas holidays.
Check out the poster for the Malcolm D. Lee-directed flick below. It’s like a negroes only edition of the J. Crew fall/winter catalog.
Will you be hitting your local theater to support the film?
“Marriage is not a priority for me. I’m not saying I’ll never do it. It’s just not where we are as a family . . . I’ll be at home with my man, having a perfectly loving time, and I’ll see all these comments on some site about how wrong I am for not being married. I don’t feel less loved or less loving because I’m not married.”

Nia Long was close-up ready while partying with a friend at Miami hot spot Club Liv on Sunday night (June 10).
The 41-year-old actress recently gushed about becoming a mother for the second time to son Kez Sunday this past November, telling The Urban Daily, “I am the happiest that I’ve been probably in my life.”

It has been 15 years since Nia Long and Larenz Tate starred as Nina Moseley and Darius Lovehall in the 90′s cult classic film Love Jones.
On the romantic comedy’s anniversary, the leads actors reflect on the chord the film struck with Black audiences and more.
First impressions of the Love Jones script
Nia Long: “I was like, “I love this, and I want to do it.” There was no question. There was also the excitement of, “Oh my gosh, my first leading role.” And I think it shaped the rest of my career.”
Larenz Tate: “My initial thoughts were: “I’m digging this character.” And, being from Chicago, I found things in the movie that reflected what I knew. I also liked the idea of [Darius] being smart, and intelligent. The guy’s a writer. He’s creative. He’s artistic. I hadn’t done that. The script spoke to me.”
Nia Long is trying to have a fresh roots box and a bag of burning dog caca sitting on her porch. But that’s okay I will help her clean it up and rid of her Agnes Dereon’s voodoo. Says South Central Brandi in Pride magazine [via Rhymes With Snitch]:
“I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate?’ When you see certain people – we won’t name names – they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes.”
Retweet to Basement Baby, please!
Nia Long glowed while Mario Van Peebles was casket ready from the ankles down at the Black & White gala for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign on Thursday.
