In the role of Slim, actor Richard T. Jones was convincing as a guy who scoffed at marriage. The cold-hearted conviction served him well for his most memorable roles in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? (2007) and Why Did I Get Married Too? (2010). Jones also ventured to TV playing Governor Sam Denning on Hawaii Five-0 and then on to NCIS: New Orleans in 2015. He also starred in the 2015 film Hot Pursuit and Concussion, which is currently in post-production.
