Marques Houston isn’t just going to boogie on the dance floor in his new flick, “Boogie Town.” He’ll also be getting his boogie on with Disney star Brenda Song. You see, the two have one very steamy sex scene in the forthcoming flick. And, Houston jokes, there were no Disney suits on the set while the two got it on.
“I shot my first onscreen sex scene with the lovely Brenda Song. It was an experience,” he told MTV News. “Lights, camera, action. There’s cameras all around and you’re trying to create a moment that looks real. We made it comfortable for each other, but it was very, very nerve-racking. I’ll never forget it, and it turned out well. It was professional.”
The movie is about rival dance crews that must compete in the underground world of Boogie Town because dancing has become illegal in a futuristic New York. Houston’s character eventually falls in love with his rival’s sister, played by Song.
Former “Sister, Sister” actor Houston, who has graduated from child star to adult star, says that the “Suite Life of Zack and Cody” actressis growing up as an actress too, thanks to her roles in “Boogie Town” and “The Social Network.”
“She was wonderful. She wanted to do the role because it would be a natural transition,” he explained. “I think she’s making a great transition. I think people will be shocked with her performance.”
Houston added that there’s a lot more to the flick than sex and fancy dance moves. He described the film as “fresh and new.” He explained, “I wouldn’t say it’s a superhero movie [but] we kind of share this energy or power that is in us. We’re kind of genetically created with the dance element.”
