MORRIS CHESTNUT LIKES BEING BAD

Morris Chestnut is now starring in the action-thriller "Half Past Dead," opposite Steven Segal and Ja Rule. But Chestnut warns that this time out he's not playing the guy that gets the girl. No, this time around he plays the villain.

"This is a departure from the way that people are used to seeing me," he says. "But I had fun and it was a welcome challenge."

Most of us remember Morris from his role as Ricky in the John Singleton classic "Boyz in the Hood," or in such favorites as "The Best Man," "The Brothers" and "Two Can Play That Game."

"I've really learned a lot since then (Boyz)," says Chestnut. "I've made some mistakes choosing roles and having people in my life who may have delayed my career a bit -- but overall I'm very happy with what I've done." Now 33, Morris is one Black Hollywood's most sought after talents, starring in favorites such as "The Best Man," "The Brothers" and "Two Can Play That Game."
