'They're White. You're Black. This Is Basketball' - Terrence Howard Dispenses Wisdom In 5-minute 'Movie 43 Clip'


Here's a 5-minute clip from the ensemble Movie 43, which features an all-star cast that includes Halle BerryTerrence HowardKate WinsletEmma Stone, Liev Schreiber, and several others.

Produced be Charles B. Wessler, it features 25 short segments directed by several different directors like Patrik ForsbergPeter FarrellyElizabeth BanksSteven Brill, Steve Carr,Rusty CundieffJames DuffyGriffin Dunne, James GunnBob Odenkirk and Brett Ratner

For Halle's segment, directed by Farrelly, here's how he describes it:

''Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant play the ultimate game of Truth or Dare. They meet through an online dating service [and later] go to a restaurant… After some small talk, Halle Berry is sick of it, and says, 'Let's play Truth or Dare.' They start one-upping each other in a very very funny way. The turkey baster is verrrrrrry interesting.''

Director Farrelly who directed Halle's segment said in a recent interview that Ms Berry wanted to push the envelope a bit, and requested that she and the director take advantage of the film's hard R-rating and get a raunchy as they can get. So they came up with a scene in which Halle smothers her breasts with guacamole.

Nice! Let's hope it's not one of the scenes that ends up on the cutting room floor. I'm sure that scene alone will sell a few extra tickets.

But seriously, this is supposed to be one of those gross-out, shock & awe comedy movies, so Halle certainly won't be the only actor in it who does something outrageous.

And here's how Terrence Howard's segment is described:

''It's the first all-black basketball team to host a championship, in the '50s… They're playing an all-white team, and they're terrified. Terrence Howard has to convince these 6'8'' black guys that they're better than these 5'9'' white guys.''

No clip of Halle's guacamole body painting exercise; but we do have 5 minutes of Terrence trying to convince his black players that they are better than their white oponents. Deep.
