What's Love got to do with "Mr 3000"?

Angela Bassett has joined the cast of the new Bernie Mac comedy "Mr 3000", reports The Hollywood Reporter. Being directed by "Drumline" helmer Charles Stone, "Mr. 3000" centers on a retired Detroit Tigers player (Mac) who comes out of retirement when three of his base hits are disallowed, dropping him below the prized 3,000-hit plateau. Bassett will play a sports reporter who is Mac’s love interest in the film.
