Donald Faison (Scrubs), Mike Epps (Next Friday) and Wood Harris (The Wire) team up in the upcoming film “Next Day Air.” Faison stars as a hapless deliveryman who finds himself at the center of a drug deal gone bad. Life isn’t going smoothly for him. He still lives at home, he just broke up with his co-worker girlfriend (Lauren London) and his own mother is threatening to fire him. But he isn’t one to let a few bad breaks ruin his day because he has something “special” to take his mind off his troubles. The three stars granted interviews and were energetic and excited to provide us with the inside scoop. Catch it in theaters May 8.
