Initially, word on the curb was that Tucker was on board to shoot the final chapter of the hilarious “Friday” movie saga. Especially after a movie poster and photo of he and Ice Cube mysteriously appeared online. Then rumors begin to swirl that he would NOT be involved.
While we all remained hopeful that Tucker would change his mind… it’s not gonna happen. It’s a wrap. Give it up. Smokey has been put to rest!
I got a rare chance to sit down with Atlanta’s favorite funnyman check out what he had to say about that and more…
For those of you who thought Chris totally disappeared. He says he went back to his roots and performed in comedy clubs around the country to hone his craft.
He also has a role in the new film, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. which opens in theatres Nov. 21st. but as far as “Friday” is concerned… Tucker says, it’s already been done. Let the past be the past.
(Special shout out to Day Nine Films for the videography)
When I heard the rumor, I was shocked that people wanted to see another one.
But of course I was happy that they loved the first one but no, I don’t think I’ll do another one.
It’s been so long ago and Friday’s was.. is a great movie and I don’t want to mess it up.
I want people to keep liking the one that they got.
Welp… it’s a wrap folks! Put a fork in it. Smokey’s DONE! You can still laugh at Chris onstage though… and tickets my be still available. CLICK HERE for more details.
R.I.P. Smokey… *sheds tear*
