Morris Chestnut stars in the new Halle Berry thriller, “The Call” as the star’s love interest, “Paul Phillips.”
In an interview with the Huffington Post, the actor opens up about his role and being Halle’s man and a police officer.
“I play a police officer, so when she gets information in the 911 call center about the possible location of the killer, that’s when she calls me and my partner in the movie, David Otunga, who’s pursuing him,” he said.
So Morris, since you’re playing Halle Berry’s “love interest,” was there any extra preparations made on your behalf?
[Laughs] She was great, man. She’s a very, very sweet woman. But the thing about it is, people don’t know that she’s just as sweet on the inside as she looks on the outside. And that’s refreshing to see, especially in this town [Hollywood] where you have people pretending to be something that they’re not, having an attitude and all of that stuff. So it was just refreshing to see someone as accomplished as she is, one of the most beautiful women in the world. And to be so sweet and down to earth is really refreshing.
While that “The Call” is hot right now, fans are seriously looking forward to the upcoming sequel, “The Best Man Holiday.”
“It’s going to be a movie to where I think people are going to experience the whole gamut of emotions. I think they’re going to laugh, and I think they’re going to cry. There’s a lot of stuff going on in this movie. It’s a fun movie, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a lot of heartwarming moments, some realization with some characters. There’s a lot in this movie.”
Oh don’t we love a great sappy movie.
