Harper, Lance, Quentin, Mia, Jordan and the rest of the gang will all be back on the big screen this November in The Best Man Holiday! The long-anticipated sequel to Malcolm D. Lee's soapy 1999 flick, The Best Man, reunites Guiding Light alums Taye Diggs (Harper) and Nia Long (Jordan) with Morris Chestnut (Lance), Sanaa Lathan (Robin), Monica Calhoun (Mia), Harold Perrineau (Julian), Regina Hall (Candy), Terrence Howard (Quentin) and Melissa de Sousa (Shelby). Also along for what is sure to be another scandalous ride, is The Young and the Restless and Sunset Beach bad boy Eddie Cibrian as Jordan's man, Brian!
In the original flick, Harper's Peyton Place-style novel about his college days set the drama straight OFF, once his friends began to figure out which of his characters each were based on. The most stunned—and infuriated—turned out to be Harper's best friend, Lance, who realized his boy had banged his new bride, Mia, back when they were coeds.

Soap operas are coming to OWN after all! As part of The Mighty O's programming pact with Tyler Perry, the one-man entertainment brand has created a sudsy, new drama entitled The Haves and The Have Nots for Ms. Winfrey's previously touchy-feely channel.
Based on one of Perry's stage plays, The Haves and The Have Nots is the upstairs/downstairs saga of a ruthlessly-wealthy WASP family and an African-American clan headed up by their God-fearing housekeeper.
The soap stars Dukes of Hazzard alum John Schneider as Judge Jim Cryer, patriarch of the powerful Cryer dynasty. Judge Cryer has been secretly paying for the services of high-priced escort Candace Young (One Life to Live's Tika Sumpter), who just so happens to be the long-lost daughter of his family's church-going housekeeper Hanna (In The Heat of The Night's Crystal Fox)!
Passions alum Eva Tamargo appears as Celine, chef to the Cryer family. Peter Parros (As The World Turns) stars as David Harrington, a wealthy friend of the Cryers. Gavin Houston (Guiding Light) portrays Jeffrey Harrington, substance abuse counselor for the Cryer's troubled son Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell). Watch the steamy trailer below!
