The men of The Best Man Holiday—Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut, and Harold Perrineau—discussed the serious and the silly on The Arsenio Hall Show last Thursday (November 14), the eve of their film’s release.

The Best Man Holiday, sequel to the 1999 romantic comedy hit The Best Man, opened nationwide Friday, November 15, 2013. Hall talked with the cast members about the opportunities and challenges facing African American actors in Hollywood.

 

The talk was deeper than the average late night TV promotional interview, to be sure, but Hall and the guys had some fun, too. Though he ultimately balked at the prospect of joining them, Hall managed to convince the quartet to break out their New Edition dance as performed in the film.

 

When asked about his love scenes with Oprah Winfrey in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Terrence Howard was a gentleman, simply saying he would “never kiss and tell.” Hall drew laughs by countering that Winfrey has said their scenes involved “a little bit of overkill with [Howard’s] hands.”

 

The Best Man Holiday is currently in theaters everywhere. The Arsenio Hall Show is nationally syndicated, check the official website for local listings.

About The Other Chad

Hi, I'm Chaz Lipp. An old co-worker of mine thought my name was Chad. Since we had two Chads working there at the time, I was "The Other Chad."
