Chris Rock at an FX event.
Kevin Hart recently announced that his hit BET show, “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” was green lit for a second season, and now, we’re hearing details of what to expect. HipHollywood reports that Chris Rock has been tapped to join the hilarious ranks of Hart, J.B. Smoove and “Wild ‘N Out“‘s Nick Cannon, and we couldn’t dream up a better addition to the all-star roster.
“It just seemed like they were having so much fun, so it’s like, I want to have fun,” Chris says in the interview below. And Hart, a behemoth on the comedy circuit, is equally excited to have the superstar on set. ”It’s just another element of funny; just another level of…unexpected humor,” he says. If you recall Rock’s several VMA hosting stints, then you know “unexpected” is an understatement.
Rock will supposedly replace Robin Thicke on the series, but a spokeswoman tells The Wrap the rumors are “not true.” Whether or not Chris will be a permanent cast member remains to be seen, but while we wait on official word, catch reruns of Chris Rock’s genius sitcom, “Everybody Hates Chris,” starting tonight at 1a/12c on MTV2!
