Singers Louis and Floyd go way back in this R&B-inflected buddy comedy — as did the actors who played them. ”I met Bernie when he used to perform at my golf tournament…years before he had a TV show,” Jackson told EW just weeks before Mac passed away in August. Sounding another bittersweet note, Soul Men also features soul giant Isaac Hayes, who died just a day after Mac did.
