Right before I was set to interview Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Romany Malco & Taraji P. Henson at the Think Like A Man Too junket, I overheard Ealy ask a nearby publicist if ‘Las Vegas had put any money into the picture?’ The publicist looked at Ealy and shrugged. ‘Good’ he quickly replied, ‘because they’d take back any money they’d given after they see these interviews I’ve done today.’ A good deal of the fun of Think Like a Man Too hinges on the interactions between the cast and the ‘Sin City’. Much of the film was shot in actual Vegas locations – the hotel rooms, the club scenes, the strip joint, the jailhouse… It adds a certain sense of verisimilitude to the picture – and allows the cast to really interact with their surroundings. There’s just an unquantifiable x-factor to knowing that the stripper pole used in the film is an actual bump-and-grind working pole, much perhaps to the chagrin of the actual cast members.
In the following interview with Ealy, Good, Malco and Henson, the foursome discuss musical numbers, stripping & fighting on screen and the uncomfortable indignities of shooting in Las Vegas. For the full interview, hit the jump.
