After the news dropped revealing there will be a The Best Man 2, fans of the ’90s romantic comedy couldn’t help salivate over any little detail surrounding the sequel’s storyline.
While the returning all star cast has mostly kept tight lipped about the upcoming film, Taye Diggs has opened up a bit in a recent interview with Essence.com.
Diggs confirms he will return as Harper Stewart, and he and girlfriend Robin – originally played by Sanaa Lathan, are still going strong. He also adds that his “character is humbled this time.
A wedding was the backdrop of the first installment, but the Brown Sugar actor noted that a different big event brings the old crew back together. However, he fell short of exposing just what that event will be.
“I can’t even begin to say,” Diggs told the media outlet. “I’ll say that there’s another big event. In the first one there was a wedding and [now] there’s another big event that brings us all together.”
Although Best Man 2 has recently been titled Best Man Holiday, Taye Diggs says this mystery event will not be what fans are expecting. So, that probably counts out Christmas, Thanksgiving, or even Easter being the reason for the college buddies’ reunion.
Aside from Diggs and Lathan; Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Terrance Howard, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa, and Regina Hall are all expected to reprise their roles in the sequel.
Best Man Holiday will reportedly begin shooting in a few weeks. The rom-com is expected to debut in theaters this November.
