This movie “The Man in 3B” is so brillantly put together and written. The outcome is very unpredictable and the acting skills of Lamman Rucker, Brely Evans and Christian Keyes was expectedly amazing. I loved the panel discussion held during the Steve Harvey’s “Neighborhood Awards” weekend where Lamman Rucker and Brely Evans were joined by the director Trey Haley to answer questions the audience may have had about the film.
Lamman Rucker portrayed a very different character than the “Sheriff Troy” we grew to love him as in the Tyler Perry flick where he played opposite Jill Scott in Why did I get married 2. Darryl Graham (Lamman Rucker) was no Sheriff Troy in the Man in 3D. I’m wondering how close Lamman Rucker’s real life character is to that of Darryl Graham since Lamman is from the streets of DC. Rucker told the audience “don’t let these movies fool you”; which leads me to believe there is a little Darryl Graham in Rucker’s street side. Although I’ve only witnessed him as a gentleman and a thespian actor true to his craft.
IMDB describes the story:
Daryl Graham (Lamman Rucker) has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can’t stop talking about him. From his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Daryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. Connie(Brely Evans), an unhappy wife, turns to Daryl for help losing weight, hoping to fix her marriage. But when Daryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether her marriage is worth saving. Benny (Robert Ri”chard), a spoiled teenager raised by a single father, looks up to Daryl. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he’s ever known to be true. Krystal (Nafessa Williams), Daryl’s first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet having Daryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And Avery (Anthony Montgomery ), Connie’s husband, doesn’t care about anything or anyone when a financial opportunity comes his way-that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor. Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.
