Honk For Jesus: Regina Hall & Sterling K. Brown Play Church Trivia
Break out your church fans! The highly anticipated comedy “Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul” is hitting theaters and Peacock this weekend (September 2) just in time for Sunday service.
HipHollywood caught up with the film’s stars Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown to talk about their characters and got them to play a round of “Church Trivia.”
Directed by Adamma Ebo and produced by Adanne Ebo, her twin sister, the film takes a look at religious institutions … specifically the Black mega-church. So what made Hall and Brown say yes?
“Good team. Great script,” said Brown. “Like an opportunity to lovingly critique an institution that is near and dear to our hearts, but doesn’t mean that it can’t stand to have some improvement. And an opportunity to work with [Regina] over here. Like the beast that she is.”
In the film Brown stars as pastor Lee-Curtis Childs alongside Hall as Trinitie Childs, devoted wife and first lady of a Southern Baptist megachurch. When the pastor’s sexual misconduct scandal takes down their once successful church, the couple goes to desperate lengths to repair their reputation and lure back their congregation for a relaunch by Easter Sunday.
“It’s not based on any one person in particular. That’s what my lawyers told me to tell you,” joked Brown who himself grew-up in church.
Hall, who’s comedic timing and witty humor are perfection, also gushed about working with Brown and some of her favorite scenes.
“There’s so much stuff that we did that actually didn’t make the movie. I mean, there was so much stuff that we did in those scenes that would make me laugh.
“I do like the pool scene,” added Brown before Hall picked up her thought. “The Prada is a lot of fun. And if you want to talk about memorable, the bedroom scene is memorable.”
