John Canada Terrell and Tommy Redmond Hicks
John: Greer Childs was a mess in She’s Gotta Have It: self-absorbed, rude, condescending, jealous. He literally claimed he changed Nola for the better, even if she preferred to be a “typical Brooklyn tackhead.” But in real life, Terrell isn’t all that bad. Last time we saw him for real, he was a replacement lead singer in the movie The Five Heartbeats, but he’s actually stayed busy. He’s appeared on TV shows, including “Law & Order,” and movies like Boomerang, and The Return of Superfly, and just recently, he showed up in a random movie called White Men Can’t Rap and Leaf in 2008.

For a minute there, we really thought Nola Darling was going to pick and stay with Jamie Overstreet, the fella Mars said had a chicken-McNugget head. He put up with her ish long enough, and after giving an ultimatum that she initially played off, she came back around to get back with him. Of course, Darling dumped him when she realized she wasn’t a one-woman man, and our sweet friend Jamie was back out on the hunt. Since doing the movie, he’s also shown up in The Meteor Man and The Five Heartbeats, and TV shows such as “Seinfeld,” “Men Behaving Badly,” “Charmed,” and “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Currently, he’s a member of the Kuumba Speakers Series.
