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.
I can't wait to find out what kind of hot, messy, goodness Harper causes in The Best Man Holiday. Watch the trailer below!

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Daytime Confidential's Official Live Blog for The 40th Annual Daytime Emmys! We'll get started in a bit, but drop me a line in the comments on what you expect for the evening!
The show is officially underway y'all! I caught some of the red carpet show, but I didn't see many soap stars. I don't know what that's about, but I digress.
We open with hosts Robin Meade, Sam Champion and AJ Hammer. I like Robin's dress. They're rambling about the Daytime Emmys turning 40 this year. Oh great, they're going to sing. Now, Robin is singing. I don't understand what's happening here.
Okay. Sam is doing a Daytme Emmy Doppler radar. I still have yet to see something that features a soap star. They just showed George Lucas who looks like he'd rather have a V8 than be in the audience. I'm kind of feeling your pain George.
So Sheryl Underwood is going to interview all the stars as they win their awards on stage. She's going to fan girl ALL OVER the place, as she's a long time soap fan.
The nominees for Outstanding Younger Actor all come out on stage. They're presenting:
