Nia Long on getting the movie made:
“It wasn’t like we were just able to make this movie; we had to go through a process. So I feel successful in that alone ….”
Sanaa Lathan on the portrayal of African Americans in films:
“We as moviegoers want to see ourselves. A lot of black films that have been out lately have been of a certain …stereotype and humor. This has a lot more depth. It’s not fitting the mold of what’s out now.”
Taye Diggs on how films have changed since The Best Man was released in 1998:
“Our films were really starting to explode and it was an interesting time. But then, people started making movies without us in them … Sadly, we’re still slaves to a system we don’t really control.”
The Best Man Holiday opens in theaters Nov.15.
