Whats up with CHRIS TUCKER?
 

 
Just got finished watching the Rush Hour movie they had on tv and at the end of it I asked myself what is up with Chris Tucker? What has this guy done before the rush hour trilogy besides FRIDAY. I couldnt think of anything for a while but then remembered he was in Money Talks and Dead Presidents. Is something wrong with him or is he just lazy? 2001 he did rush hour 2. 2007 he does rush hour 3. Thats a 6 year hiatus! I mean hes a funny comedian and not goin to say hes the funniest but im sure enough people out there think hes funny to the extent where it shouldnt be hard for him to find a film to be in. 1998-2007 its been all rush hour movies. Thats basically a decade playing the same role! There are actors who make 2 movies in a single year. He needs to fire his agent immediately. Hes banking off Jackie Chan and thats cool but I just see an actor who isnt utilizing his opportunity. Theres a lot more money to be made out there. Seriously what was he doing those 6 years?

Chan says Tucker holding up 'Rush Hour 3'
HONG KONG (AP) Jackie Chan says the third installment of "Rush Hour" is stuck in neutral because co-star Chris Tucker is making too many demands.
Chris Tucker isn't commenting on Jackie Chan's revelations about Tucker's demands on the set.
AP file

"He wants too much power. The movie company hasn't obliged. He wants final editing rights and the final look at the movie and so on," Chan told The a.ssociated Press Thursday.

Chan called Tucker a "good friend" but questioned whether he had the stature to be so demanding.

"He's still a new actor," Chan, 51, said. "How many movies has he made? Two movies have already made him very famous and made him a lot of money."

"He needs to learn slowly," he added.

A call by The a.ssociated Press to Tucker's publicist, Samantha Mast, wasn't returned Friday.

While "Rush Hour 3" remains in limbo, Chan said he's going ahead with another project one with famed Chinese director Zhang Yimou. Zhang's recent films include "House of Flying Daggers" and "Hero."

Chan declined to reveal details of the movie, saying only that it would be "galvanizing" and is set in the 1980s. He said the idea is his, but Zhang will work on the script.

"He relies on imagination ... like an arrow flying through water," said Chan. "He has elevated the martial arts genre. I believe he can make any type of movie now."

He threaten not to do the final movie because he thought he wasnt offered enough money. They agreed on 20mil and thats a number very few actors can demand. I mean hes not an A class type star.

Word on the street was that, he found religion and decided to cut back on his profanity and acting.

But a teacher of mine who's in the SAG said that the reason he wasn't in the FRiday sequels was because he was bootlegging Friday so he and Ice Cube got into it and banned him from the rest of the movies.

Hes not getting that on a regular basis. Just on this movie because he was causing drama. No one will pay him that much for future films outside of Rush Hour.l

2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good

you need to wake up before you're in hell. that prooves right there the time is near for the end. better start asking for forgiveness and accepting Jesus and straightening up. you're loved.

Chris Tucker holds out for big pay day. He's been fortunate enough to get involved in some serious projects and make big money (check his filmography) mostly nothing but A-Grade Hollywood sh*t. Wants to maintain the run. Won't catch him in an indie film, playin a mentally handicapped prostitute any time soon.
