NEW YORK, N.Y. - Romany Malco says the ensemble cast of "Think Like a Man Too" had to be fast on their feet.

Malco, who plays semi-reformed ladies' man Zeke, said in order to get the busy cast back together for the sequel, we "figured out the script as we went along."

"I didn't see the script until the day I showed up," he confessed in a recent interview.

Malco credits director Tim Story for being a "great general" and "captain" in keeping everything moving and staying true to the story once filming began in Las Vegas.

Once the scenes were mapped out, the writers went to work to put it on the page. Still, there were a lot of last-minute changes.

"I would rehearse a scene, be ready to do the scene and they'd go, 'Oh no we've changed that. You're gonna do this in the water with your clothes on and you're gonna say these lines instead,'" laughed Malco.

He says the erratic schedule was worth it to make it all happen, adding: "That's the gig. That's what we signed up for."

Their efforts paid off. The movie opened at No. 1 at the U.S. Box office, pulling in $30 million.

As for the prospect of a third film?

"I'd be game because I like the people that I work with on this job and I've never really been part of a franchise before. ... I want to be involved ... because I honestly feel as though there's still more to be done."

"Think Like A Man" is adapted from Steve Harvey's bestselling relationship advice book.
