Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind The Making Of “The Best Man”

Why did Taye Diggs take the role?

After his breakout film role in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Taye Diggs was suddenly a hot commodity in Hollywood, the latest chocolate sex symbol. So it’s not hard to imagine that there were quite a few roles coming his way at the time. But he explained why he chose to take part in this movie. 

The large ensemble cast and the fact that it was being shot in New York, combined with a lot of strong positive images as far as African Americans are concerned, really turned me on to The Best Man. It’s a movie about black people that deals with issues that cross over into universal themes that people of all races and creeds can relate to.
