Morris Chestnut talks Blockbusters films, the long-anticipated Best Man sequel and kissing Halle Berry

Rolling Out has a heart–to-heart with the handsome actor on conquering Hollywood and the very lucky Mrs. Chestnut


(Atlanta, GA) As one of the most celebrated and respected African American television and film actors of the last decade, it’s no stretch of the imagination to say Morris Chestnut has enjoyed a successful career. Whether he was quickening the heartbeats of teenage girls everywhere as the doomed teenage father Ricky Baker in the 1991 cult classic “Boyz N the Hood”, or the sexy groom-to-be Lance Sullivan in the 1999 film “The Best Man” or even as the self-centered yet lovable Tracy Reynolds, NBA Star in the 2002 kid friendly “Like Mike”, Morris Chestnut wins his audience over every time.

Co-starring in the February 2013 blockbuster “Identity Thief”, opposite Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy; and this month in “The Call” as Halle Berry’s love interest, Chestnut’s star appears to be shining even brighter as of late. 2013 will undoubtedly prove to be one of Chestnut’s most notable years, with a summer blockbuster hit on the way (Kick Ass 2), an appearance on the fifth season of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie”, and the long awaited sequel to “The Best Man” making its way to theatres in November. Although he is one of the most celebrated actors in Hollywood, and it’s no secret he is considered to be one of the most handsome men on the planet, Chestnut insists family is his first priority. The married father of two has perfected balancing his public persona against his starring roles as husband, father, brother and even friend.

Between promotional runs for The Call, Chestnut sits down with rolling out correspondent Ronda Racha Penrice to discuss family, his upcoming movies, wearing the production hat on a new project and the long awaited “Best Man” sequel.
