Chris Tucker - Rush Hour 3 - Atlanta premiere

Chris Tucker Says No More Rush Hour Movies. He’s Doing New Things

Last night Chris Tucker held a Rush Hour 3 premiere in his hometown Atlanta, GA. Rush Hour 3 is the kind of movie that needs no explanation, it’s karate kicks and Chris Tucker jokes ready made for primetime TV. Yuck!

“What the heck are you doing man?.. Shut the stuff up!.. Fart off!” Whenever I see Chris Tucker these days I can’t help but think how he completely handcuffed his career for the folks at his neighborhood church. 

After Friday it was their frowns that weighed heavy in his decision to watch his mouth.

That’s fine, but how many years was he performing in clubs, made appearances on Def Jam, before he decided he better listen to them? It’s his career and he’s not hurting for money, Rush Hour 3 earned him a $25 million paycheck, but unless he pulls a Will Smith and starts doing drama and action movies, he’ll forever be known as Smokey.

If Chris Tucker has it his way, he’s gonna get to that next level of movie stardom.

First step: shake the Rush Hour series.

“For me as a career move, I don?t know if I want to do another one. The fans will have to really, really, really say that ‘3’ was so good that they want to see another one. Because I really want to do something different.”

So he’s working on a script where he’ll play the next black president.

Hold up, didn’t Chris Rock do that already? ..

“He did a version about becoming president, I?m going to be the president.

Recently Chris mentioned he was open to working with Ice Cube again. He repeated that in the interview; would that reunion be called Saturday? <

< 😊

It would be nothing short of Jesus hitting the bricks again for that to happen; maybe I shouldn't bring biblical figures into this considering Chris is the subject. But here he his working on a I'm the black president comedy.. which is shaky anyway considering Obama is taking the laughs out of that joke.. meanwhile he's refusing to do a movie that sounds five times better.

Think a Reservoir Dogs-like heist comedy, directed by Brett Ratner.

Starring Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and Chris Tucker.

Chris Tucker wants no parts of that.

“I’m not going to do it because for me I’m trying to build a body of work and that won’t do anything for me. This movie [Rush Hour 3] is good because Jackie is Asian and I?m black. Jackie is known around the world and right away from ‘Rush Hour’ I was known around the world. It was just a perfect blend.

With everything I do, I try to take it to another level and do something different. But me being punched up with a bunch of other comedians ain?t gonna do nothing for me.”

Wow. I would hate to be his agent.

Hello, Mr. Tucker! I have to start off by mentioning how incredibly handsome you are and the fact that you are hilarious adds to your beauty! I am just mesmerized by your beauty! You are extremely talented and my favorite movie of yours is Friday! I love this movie and no matter how many times I see it I laugh at the same jokes over and over again! It was just something about you and Ice Cube and the other supporting actors that made that movie one of the all time classic black movies that exist! It just made a person want to be friends with Smokey and Craig! It is just a great feel good movie! You were also funny in Money Talks and in the first Rush Hour movie. But, you really showed that you are able to do more than just comedy in Dead Presidents. I really wish that you would do serious roles such as the role in Dead Presidents. I would even love to see you do a love scene or two. I am so impressed and proud of all the work that you have been doing over in Afica, you truly seem to be a good black man and we need more of you in the world. I wish you all the success that your handsome self can handle. May God bless you and your family and I hope that one day you do allow that right woman to share your life! Peace, Mr. Tucker!

why must a mans character be judged if he is an actor doing his job? That kills me.

anyway, when chris says he wants to do something different does he mean different as in a serious role such as “man on fire” where no jokes are involved? Or does he just mean a role that will make him more popular such as supporting bigger stars? He is good at the rush hour/money talks roles. I love him in all those. I loved Friday as well.

In my eyes he has progressed with his acting roles. He should hook up with Jamie Foxx though. He seems to have gotten good advice from somewhere because he came up from the silly and wacky jaime kingston to playing Ray Charles in Ray and didn’t stop there.

I love to see my black men rise. Keep it up ya’ll 😊

I don’t think it would do a damn thing if we judged, dissed or scorned Chris about the phat check Rush Hour keeps signing. So it comes as no surprise to hear he finally feels guilt for boring us with these redundant peak traffic updates. Way-to-go Chris. You’ve made the right move china. I hope it works out for you.

Chris, please please please do another rush hour. We love all three rush hour movies and all the family have seen them so many times. You know they are your finest work, you make so many people laugh. Do another one before Jackie gets too old to do his own stuntwork. Love from England .

23 Dianna Saffold-Cooks Sun, Jun 13, 2010 - 6:41 pm

Chris I appreciate your professional decisions.Your choices affect all black male actors. It inspires them to study their craft;not just do it.They are encouraged to audition for any role.Stay handsome and keep climbing until you climax. 25 million is the kind of climax I speak of.

24 kisha Thu, Feb 10, 2011 - 9:55 pm

what,s up with the spelling on this suite I God love u so do I!!!!

25 Chris Wed, Mar 09, 2011 - 2:24 pm

Chris Tucker is a &$$... So he turned down a movie deal with some of the best talent in holywood because he’s to good for that huh? Bull!!! Being in a movie with Eddie Murphy,better than him, Chris Tucker,the better Chris, Dave Chappell,funnier than him, and Jamie Foxx, a better actor than he’ll ever be. Look if you want to get better at chess you have to play to your level. Jackie Chan is a action hero. Love the guy, but he’s not winning any Academy Awards for his acting. So if he want’s to step his game up then he needs to get in some movies with people who can act too. The only person on Rush Hour that could act was him, which is why he wants to be in those kind of movies. Because, he can out shine everyone else with his so so talent. SUCK BALLS CHRIS!!! Yes everybody should hate Chris….

Chris tucker, you are one of the best comedians of our time. If you wish to do what you want thats your decision. But how you gonna say you rather work with jackie chan cause he is known all over the world. So is eddie, jamie, chris rock, and even dave chapelle. Your just being selfish and not share the spotlight with other comedians and work as co existing comics of the sane craft. No more friday, cause your people said to watch your mouth….bull man, you were still cursing in other following movies, get ya ass back on the big screen man, and start making the real money you were making.
