Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan & Taye Diggs Cover JET Magazine [Nov. 25]
Nia Long, Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan collectively cover the Nov. 25 issue of JET magazine.
The trip are on a promo run, as they gear up for the release of their movie The Best Man Holiday. Check out an excerpt from their feature below.
Nia Long on getting the sequel to Best Man 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 movies have evolved since The Best Man:
“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.”
Best Man Holiday opens in theaters on November 15.
