If you ask me, Nick Cannon was never cooler than when he played Devon Miles in the hit turned period piece, Drumline. Tapping into a slice of black culture that’s rarely shown in mainstream media, Drumline was a coming of age story with a twist. You know all the music, the lines, some of ya’ll probably even memorized the dance moves; but despite all of that, we’d bet good money that you don’t know some of these behind the scenes secrets.

Drum Roll Please (Or Not): “Drumline” Is Getting A Sequel

I loved the movie “Drumline” — 10 years ago when it came out in 2002 — so I’m having a little trouble wrapping my head around the idea of a sequel coming out so many years later, but Nick Cannon says it’s happening. This weekend the actor broke the news on Twitter, and before you freak out, rest assured that he will not be the star of part two.

Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that they’re not going to try to make Nick Cannon play the role of a college kid at 32, although he does still have the baby face to pull it off. I wouldn’t have minded a “Drumline 2″ back in say 2004 with Nick and Zoe, and even Jason Weaver, but all these years later? My only problem with this concept is the second time around these types of rehashed part twos always seem to be straight to DVD, BET premiere type of productions. See: “You Got Served: Beat The World,” “Bring It On Again,” “Save the Last Dance 2,” “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” and Step Up 2,3,4, to the umpteenth power. I feel like making a “Drumline 2″ is just asking to be thrown in that category of goofy sequel fails, but hey if it makes someone some money somewhere I guess it could be a success. What do you think?
