*Exclusive* Cast Of “The Best Man” Celebrates The Movie’s Anniversary, Talk Potential New Project

- By Bossip Staff

Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan and the rest of the cast from 1999’s “The Best Man” got together on Saturday, to celebrate the twelve year anniversary of the movie’s release.

The movie took the #1 spot at the box offices during it’s opening weekend. But despite their great success together, this was the first time the cast met up since their promotional run ended 12 years ago.

“It’s hard to believe we all haven’t been in the same space for over 12 years,” director Malcolm D. Lee tells Bossip, “but it was like we’ve seen each other everyday. It was a joy to reunite with the “Black Pack”, one of the best casts ever assembled in my view. Judging from the laughs, conversation and smiles we’d all love to find a way to collaborate again. God willing it’ll happen.”

    I hate Taye Diggs, Terrance Howard and Sanaa Lathan. I wish I could resurrect Bro. Malcolm and lock them all in a room with him and let him “work them over the head” a couple of times with an aluminum baseball bat.
