Nia Long, Morris Chestnut Spill Details on ‘Best Man’ Sequel

More cast members from the first Best Man movie are finally spilling some details about the Best Man sequel. Nia Long dished about what she knew during her interview with JET before she rocked the cover to flaunt her age-defying beauty.

The ever-so-gorgeous Long revealed that the cast found out about the Best Man sequel over a dinner.

“We made magic together – so many people say that to me,” she said in her interview with JET. “And because I love the cast. The film’s director, Malcolm Lee, has been talking about it for some time and finally announced his plan during a recent cast reunion dinner.”

As for the actual movie, Long doesn’t know much because they haven’t started filming.

“We’re not shooting until late April in Toronto, so I can’t say much. But everybody is really excited to revisit our stories and find out what happens next,” she added. “Where is Jordan now? Did she get married? Did she break up a relationship? It’s like reading a great book; you want to see what the next chapter is.”

Morris Chestnut also opened up about the sequel during his interview with the Huffington Post.

“Yeah, that’s pretty accurate,” he said in response to actor Terrence Howard saying he gets teary-eyed thinking about the Best Man sequel. “It’s going to be a movie … where I think people are going to experience the whole gamut of emotions. I think they’re going to laugh, and I think they’re going to cry. There’s a lot of stuff going on in this movie.”

Chestnut said that despite the emotions throughout the film, it will still be a great experience for movie-goers.

“It’s a fun movie, don’t get me wrong,” he continued. “But there’s a lot of heartwarming moments, some realizations with some characters. There’s a lot in this movie.”

Another exciting aspect of the film is simply seeing Long on camera, looking as if not even a year passed since she filmed the first one.

While she unfortunately didn’t dish on her beauty secrets, she did talk about how acting was a leap of faith for her, considering there isn’t any real job security in the acting world.

“Actors only have job security from the time we’re on set until they say cut,” she explained to JET. “But deep, down inside, I knew it would work out for me. Luckily, I was also naïve. What’s the saying? Ignorance is bliss. I had a wonderful acting coach who didn’t focus on failure, only working.”
