Mekhi Phifer will star in the upcoming Lifetime movie, A Day Late & A Dollar Short which is based on the book written by Terry McMillan. The film will premiere later this month (April). In this exclusive interview Mekhi talks landing the role, describes a perfect kiss, nature walks and more.

"I have a film coming out, A Day Late A Dollar Short which is an adaptation of Terry McMillian’s book. With Whoopi Goldberg, Ving Rhames, Tichina Arnold. There’s a great cast! Anika Noni Rose [will also be in this film].


“When it comes to an adaptation, I usually stay away from the book and kind of go with the script. To me, for my process, I like to draw from what I see on the page. Sometimes the books are a little different. There’s added things and things that are taken out. I rather just go with the script.”
