Jack Harlow Reveals If He Can Dunk At ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Premiere
It’s 2023 and the world still thinks White Men Can’t Jump.
On Thursday (May 11th) the cast, filmmakers and special guests gathered for the premiere of the 90s reboot at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.
The modern remix of the 1992 film stars Sinqua Walls, Jack Harlow, Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier, Myles Bullock, Anthony Hamilton Jr., Slink Johnson, J. Alphonse Nicholson, and Arturo Castro.
Directed by Calmatic, who recently helmed the “House Party” reboot, the film celebrates the street ball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his future in the sport. Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his own career. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
HipHollywood hit the red carpet and chatted with the cast and a host of special guests to find out if they can dunk.
“You gotta watch the movie,” said Harlow when asked if he can dunk. Meanwhile his co-star Bentley Green said yes Harlow can actually get above the rim.
“There’s a lot of people in this movie who can dunk. Even Jack, white men can jump,” he joked.
Walls, who played basketball in college also said that he can still dunk. “After all the knee injuries, I’m proud to say I can still dunk, I can still get a two hander.”
Check out what some the other cast members had to say about their skills below.
White Men Can’t Jump begins streaming on May 19, 2023, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S.
