Gentlemen’s Corner: McKinley Freeman Talks ‘Hit The Floor’ and Gives Workout Advice to Women


VH1’s new scripted series Hit The Floor takes us into the world of fictitious pro-basketball team Los Angeles Devils and their dancers, the Devils Girls. Asha (Taylour Paige) is a newbie to the squad, and as she tries to navigate through the vicious dancing world (boyfriend in tow), McKinley Freeman’s character Derek Roman doesn’t mind being her very attractive teacher.

“He’s super talented but isn’t quite committed as the other people around him,” the former college ballplayer says of Roman’s naughty nature. “But because he is so talented, he gets away with it.”

Vixen caught up with the fitness guru-slash-actor as he dishes on his new role, following his dreams and workout advice for women.
