    ‘Best Man’ sequel on the way?

    Could Taye Diggs and Nia Long be prepping for an on-screen reunion? According to Deadline.com, Universal Pictures has asked Malcolm D. Lee to direct and produce The Best Man 2.

    That’s right! The studio wants to do a follow-up to the 1999 comedy, which also starred Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Nia Long, Terrence Howard and Sanaa Lathan.

    None of the cast members have signed on for the project just yet, and little is know about the plot at this time. Reportedly, however, Malcolm’s plan is to ask all of the original cast members to reprise their roles.

    Chris Rock defends comedic cross-dressers

    While many criticize Black comedians who get laughs by dressing as women, Chris Rock doesn’t feel it’s that’s big a deal.

    "I mean, hey, lots of comedians dress up like women, not just Black. It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book. Men in drag … There was Mrs. Doubtfire. [Adam] Sandler’s next movies is Jack and Jill. He plays his brother and sister. [The Black community] doesn’t have that many movies, so if there’s only four Black movies in a year and two of them star Black men in dresses, I could see how that would upset some people. But that’s a job for some people,” Chris told Vibe magazine.

    “Tyler Perry is great in a dress, but I don’t want to see Denzel or Will Smith in a dress. And I don’t think we’re in any danger of seeing that."
