2. Morris’ mom made his star on the Walk of Fame happen
Morris received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in March 2022, and it turns out it was his mama who made the whole thing a reality.
“My mother, she called me one day, she said, ‘You need to get your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,’” he told JHud. “She called my publicist, she called my wife, she says, ‘We gonna get him his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.’”
He wanted to make the day extra special for his mama since she put in so much effort making it happen, so he scheduled the ceremony on his mother’s birthday. Now that’s a good son!
3. Morris is often mistaken for other celebs
“People say, ‘I loved you in Fast and the Furious!’” he said, referencing Tyrese Gibson.
Other people he says he’s been mistaken for are rapper Charlamagne tha God and Taye Diggs. “Any bald-headed Black man with a goatee,” he laughed.
4. He used a body double on the set of ‘The Best Man: The Final Chapters’
“There’s a scene in this show where I had a body double… where I’m completely naked in public,” he shared. “And I just wasn’t gonna do that. So I had somebody there to be completely naked in public.”
“I should have called Taye, Tyrese, or Charlamagne!” he joked. We agree!
5. JHud had a birthday dessert surprise for Morris!
Though Morris just turned 54 years old, “I feel like I’m 25, 35,” he said. “I play basketball. I’m very, very active.” Because Morris’ birthday is January 1, as a kid he felt ripped off for having a birthday so close to the holidays. To make up for it, and to satisfy the actor’s known sweet tooth, JHud brought out four of Morris’ favorite desserts on a platter for a tasty birthday surprise! (She then brought out more desserts so the audience could join in the celebration!)
