Some of these people are ignorant as hell here. For real. One, Chris Tucker is not the "heart" of Rush Hour. Fools are saying how they are not going to watch the movie with just Jackie Chan. SHUT THE fu*k UP! Are you going to watch the movie if it was just Chris Tucker? Two, those who are saying Jackie Chan is not a good actor compared to Denzel. YOU ARE STUPID. FLAT OUT STUPID. There is more than just one type of acting. Can you see Denzel taking Jackie Chan's role? NO, RIGHT? Next time when some of you post, think about it first before you look like a fu*king idiot.
Now about the topic, he sees the oppurtunity to get more so he's taking it. It doesn't matter if you're a vet or not. You see the oppurtunity so you take it. He knows that Rush Hour wouldn't be Rush Hour if Chan and him aren't together. That's why he could make these demands.
chris tucker needs to start making better choices....
he needs to say look, i'mma do one more friday for the fans for the love of the fans and that's it.
