COOL 90's CHICK: Nia Long
"I'm Nia Muthafu*&#$g Long”! You’re damn right she is! Nia first captured my attention as Kat Speakes, the girlfriend of David Grant on the soap opera Guiding Light. When she made the jump to big screen playing Brandi in the film Boyz in the Hood, I was right there with her. Most people wanted to see the movie for Ice Cube’s film debut, I went for Nia’s film debut. Since then she has played a string of beautiful, smart, classy, and sassy characters. In Love Jones (1997) she played Nina Moseley, the gorgeous photographer who falls in love with sexy poet Darius Lovehall (Larenz Tate). In Friday (1995), she plays Debbie, the best friend of Craig’s (Ice Cube) sister and the girl Craig would love to get to know a little better. In Soul Food, she played Bird, a hairdresser and wife of Lem(Mekhi Phifer) who stood by her man in the worst of times. In The Best Man (1999) she plays sassy writer Jordan Armstrong who reunites with old college flame Harper Stewart (Taye Diggs) at a wedding for a mutual friend. Nia still continues to shine in movie and television roles. She’s even tried her hand at directing music videos, Ashanti’s Baby video and Yolanda Adams’ This Too Shall Pass video and appeared in videos for other artists. Her sexy is preserved and she's always a true class act. Do your thang Ms. Long!
