A couple of years after shooting Think Like a Man, the cast got back together to shoot a sequel last summer to the popular film.
And Michael Ealy says in the interim, a lot of changes took place.
Ealy dished to BET.com on bonding with his castmates, the growing popularity of the TLAM franchise and other projects.
Ealy starred on the now cancelled Fox show, Almost Human, got married and started his own family. He and wife Khatira Rafiqzada had a son Elijah in 2012.
His co-stars also grew since the filming of the first film. Terrence J is becoming the next big entertainment reporter and media personality; Kevin Hart transcended into mega superstar comedian and actor; Gabrielle Union is marrying Dwayne Wade and scored a hit BET show, Being Mary Jane.
But through all their many changes over the years, the cast remained close friends.
“We are a tight knit crew, but we’re like family,” Ealy says. “And you don’t have to see your family all the time. But all the same, whenever we see each other, it’s like nothing changes. I can’t say that we’re hanging out at clubs on the weekly…that’s not happening. We got lives of our own, families and such. But the work brings us together often, and that’s okay.”
