On being the spokesperson of the "Make 7UP Yours" commercials: I walked in thinking, "I have ten movies under my belt and now they want me to go back to making commercials?" I said, if I do that, I want it to be funny. Quite honestly, I didn't think the deal was going to make, because I wanted part of the creative control. I was impressed that they were making an offer to a non-athlete young black male to be a spokesperson for two and a half years. To their credit, they said, absolutely yes, they never questioned anything I wanted to do. It was a blessed experience for me. (PopMatters.com, 2000)
