Jack Harlow makes his acting debut in the new remake of White Men Can’t Jump.
“It was exhausting. It was a hot summer,” said the 25-year-old musician diversity at the film’s Los Angeles premiere Thursday night. He plays Jeremy, a basketball Hitler, in the film.
While filming the film, Harlow also juggled the production of his latest album, Jackman. “I just did it,” Harlow said. “I guess I’m a hard worker.”
Sinqua Walls plays Harlow’s accomplice Kamal. Walls talked about working with Harlow diversity“It was easy. He was one of my first castmates who called me before filming to work on the lines together. I have a lot of love for him. I’m telling you now this is just the beginning, because for my brother there are no limits.
“Combining my two loves – acting and basketball – is just a gift,” Walls continued.
White Men Can’t Jump is a remake of the 1992 sports comedy starring Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes. Calmatic is directing the new film. “The opportunity to reinvent something the way I want to create is a difficult opportunity for any creator to turn down,” said Calmatic, who also directed the remake of ’90s comedy House Party .
White Men Can’t Jump was filmed primarily in Los Angeles, which made the director proud.
“Sometimes I’m overwhelmed because I’m from LA,” Calmatic said. “It’s like I want the world to know, ‘This is where I grew up, This is where I fought my first fight, This is where I had a crush on a girl.’ I just love the city and everything it has to offer. The real LA place like Leimert Park, Crenshaw, Watts, The Jungles, those are places that mean a lot to me. And I wanted to share them with the world.”
Anthony Hamilton Jr., who plays the 17-year-old version of Kamal in the film, said one of his favorite moments on set was fooling around with the late Lance Reddick, who passed away in March.
“In the second scene we shot, I was shooting and he was making faces at me off camera. We had conversations away from the event and those are moments that will always be close to my heart,” said Hamilton Jr. diversity.
J. Alphonse Nicholson best remembers his character Jermaine entering the field to solve some problems with a flamethrower: “I don’t know where he got that from. But it was such a fun moment, and FYI we used an actual flamethrower. I was afraid that I would lose my eyebrows. And we shot the scene like five or six times.”
White Men Can’t Jump premieres May 19 on Hulu.
