5 YEARS AGO '''Jerry Maguire' had been out for like a year. I'd been complimented for my work in John Singleton's films, but they were black films. 'Jerry Maguire' just took it all to another level. I was able to audition for bigger movies.''
NOW ''In 'Legally Blonde 2,' I'm kind of the nemesis of Reese Witherspoon's character, who comes to Washington to get a bill passed. Her looks and her way of doing things are, to say the least, shocking to me. Eventually I have to applaud her, uh, originality.''
5 YEARS FROM NOW ''I'll be in Spain speaking Spanish. I have a good accent, I can read fluently. I know how to roll the r's. One thing I love about Spain is the sexy flamenco dance. It's so sensual -- and yet they're fully clothed.''
