Ensemble cast ‘acted’ quickly
Romany Malco says the ensemble cast of “Think Like a Man Too” had to be fast on their feet.
Malco, who plays semi-reformed ladies’ man Zeke, said in order to get the busy cast back together for the sequel, we “figured out the script as we went along.”
“I didn’t see the script until the day I showed up,” he confessed in a recent interview.
Malco credits director Tim Story for being a “great general” and “captain” in keeping everything moving and staying true to the story once filming began in Las Vegas.
