Sanaa Lathan Named New Face of Pantene, Dishes on ‘Best Man 2’ and upcoming projects

Sanaa Lathan Pantene Nature Fusion ShootThe stunningly beautiful Sanaa Lathan recently sat down with to discuss her new endorsement deal with Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion (and dismiss some pesky rumors.) The actress also dished on her upcoming projects– including the highly anticipated Best Man sequel.

On the Best Man sequel: There seems to be a Best Man 2 in the works, can you tell us more about that?

Sanaa: Nothing has been confirmed yet regarding Best Man 2, but it is a great script that we have all read. It’s all on the studio and them deciding to do it. I know a lot of people are excited and anticipating the movie, but we all just have to cross our fingers and hopefully it will all come together. Everyone in the cast is excited and on board, and I think people will be really pleasantly entertained to see where these characters have evolved over the twelve years.

On her other upcoming projects: So what else are you working on?

Sanaa: I have Vipaka, but they are thinking about changing the title. It’s a physiological thriller with Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie. We shot it in New Orleans last August. It’s scary, sexy and tense. They are still editing it, so I’m not really sure when it will be out.

On landing her big endorsement with Pantene Pro-V: How did you and Pantene Pro-V come about?

Sanaa: Earlier last year I got a call from my agent that Pantene was interested in having a new face represent the line, and I was extremely excited about that. I was doing a play at the time and I had everybody come to the play, which I am assuming helped. It turned out to be a great fit and I’m thrilled!
