Details of making “The Best Man.”

Published

on

When “The Best Man” hit theaters, it took over the box office with its unforgettable characters, a dream cast and a hot soundtrack.  On Sunday, October 7 at 9/8C, critically-acclaimed biographical series UNSUNG HOLLYWOOD sits down with director Malcolm D. Lee, along with members of the cast, to discuss the behind the scenes details of making “The Best Man.”

“The Best Man” was the directorial debut of Malcolm D. Lee, younger cousin of famed filmmaker Spike Lee, and became the #1 film opening weekend in October 1999. The film featured an African American ensemble cast with a universal story that could reach mainstream audiences. During a time when many Black films were focused on the reality of street life, the film explored themes of love, relationships, commitment and marriage. With popular actors Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Terrence Howard and Regina Hall, the movie became one of the most beloved films of its time and helped pave the way for more films featuring African American lead actors that showcased love and relationships.  Malcolm battled with the studio over creative choices while in production, and despite its universal storyline, it was marketed as a “black film” that ultimately failed to have the mass appeal he sought.
