Have you seen "The Best Man Holiday" yet? Already the romantic comedy has shattered box office projections, raking in $10 million on Friday, and is expected to finish with $30 million by the end of the weekend. Kudos!
Last week, during the movie's premiere, we caught up with a few of the cast members and asked them fun questions that centered around a few storylines in the movie, especially, Candy (the former stripper) and Murch. When the fellas were asked if you can turn a stripper into a housewife, Terrence Howard (who plays Quentin), said "yes" as long as you keep a pole in the room, while Harold Perrineau agreed.
"When you meet the right person, and you connect, it doesn't matter what they do, if you can connect and make something happen, yeah. You can turn a stripper into a housewife. You can get a pimp to slow down..."
We also mentioned to Harold (Murch) that his manhood was sort of taken away from him by his woman (Shelby) in the first version of the film, and he revealed that he had a similar incident in real life.
"I have that one memory of me yelling at the window. 'Come out! I love yoooooooou.' I have been there. I got turned out by a chick and I was so twisted and crying all of the time. She just didn't like me. She kind of dated me and was like, 'Nah..I'm not too interested' and I kind of lost it. I was a bit of a mess for a while."
