SANAA LATHAN DOESN'T MAKE MANY MOVIES, -- only five since 2000, and one of them just used her voice -- and that's OK by her. Not only does the 34-year-old Yale-trained New York native not feel pressured to be onscreen all the time -- she'd rather choose her projects carefully, opting for quality over quantity -- but such selectivity gives her the chance to return to her first love, the stage. In 2004, she starred opposite Sean Combs in a revival of A Raisin in the Sun, and was nominated for a Tony.

First things first. Sanaa Lathan wants it known that she's nothing like Kenya McQueen, the obsessive-compulsive, self-doubting, canine-phobic, hopelessly analytical, play-it-safe career woman she brings to the screen in Something New, a love story about stepping over boundaries - especially those imposed by race - opening in theaters today. "I'm kind of the opposite of her," Lathan says over the phone from Atlanta, in the midst of a nationwide tour promoting the film. "I'm a real nature girl, I have a dog I'm in love with.

NEW YORK - Sanaa Lathan attended the University of California-Berkeley for her undergraduate degree and Yale Drama School to hone her craft. Neither experience compared to the education she received recently. Lathan had just returned from Miami, where she finished acting with Denzel Washington in Out of Time. "It really made me kind of step back and look at how much I have to learn," Lathan said in a Manhattan hotel room. "I did learn so much just by acting opposite him, seeing what he did on each different take.

"Extreme Measures," a new medical thriller with Hugh Grant and Gene Hackman as doctors with differing views on medical ethics, is an episode of "Beauty and the Beast" grafted onto an episode of "ER" as directed by Alfred Hitchcock.Not a bad pedigree at all.From "ER," the film gets its setting: the emergency room at a big-city hospital. From "Beauty and the Beast," it gets its most evocative sequence, a tour of a secret underground world carved out by New York street people. From Hitchcock, it gets its central conceit: an ordinary, innocent man drawn into extraordinary, dangerous circumstances.

The police-procedural/crime thriller has been done to death, so to speak. Where do you go from there? In the case of Out of Time, you simply bring the genre up to date. With a screenplay that feels like it came from a novel and didn't (it's the first feature script by Dave Collard), Carl Franklin creates high tension via the very aspects of modern investigation that should prevent him from doing exactly that. In real-life crime fighting, the fugitive has lost a lot of his edge, aka his privacy/anonymity (and haven't we all)

Though it may be difficult for many to believe, Taye Diggs didn't always have matinee-idol looks. Growing up in Rochester, N.Y., he was plagued with an assortment of problems -- bad clothes, dorky glasses, a spastic personality. In short, he was a nerd. "I didn't fit in, could never get the girl that I wanted," says Diggs, 30, who was often teased because of his dark skin. In fact, it wasn't until he attended the High School of the Arts in Rochester that Diggs' social life started to pick up. There, he says, "It didn't matter how much money you had, it didn't matter how you looked.

"Love and Basketball" is "Hoop Dreams," "A Star is Born" and every John Hughes movie you've ever seen, all rolled into ... well, a ball. In anyone else's hands, this would not be a good thing. But first-time director Gina Prince-Bythewood has taken the conventional coming-of-age romance genre and invigorated it with such vivid characters and such alertness to the culture she's representing, that she makes what might have been derivative into something brand new. Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan play Quincy McCall and Monica Wright, who meet as 11-year-olds and bond over their mutual love for basketball.
