Sound Bite: Chris Brown talks about how he was attracted to this movie and Stomp the Yard.
Actually Screen Gems came to me with both of these movies, and told me they had these movies, and I was like “well okay,” and I was really into it. A lot of the movies I look at the cast, and the first movie was a great cast as well, but it was showing a different side of dance that I liked. But with this movie it was a tremendous cast that everybody would really go for and I really liked that part and that’s why I signed on.

Sound Bite: Chris Brown talks about what his main focus was for the film.
I think this one, with this movie my acting was probably the main focus for me, but then with the singing it was just natural, that especially it was a Christmas movie so it kinda felt good to do both of those.

Sound Bite: Chris Brown talks about his acting process.
Not really I didn’t, like, for this movie didn’t really have an acting coach or things like that I was more on the lines of “okay let’s just do this.” (Talks) Not really I was just trying to have it natural, I learned, I would say my acting coaches would be the actors around me, you know what I’m sayin, because I follow what they do and I listen to their advice.
