Actor/Comedian Chris Tucker has been off the scene for a while… 4 years to be exact, but he’s apparently ready, willing and able for his big screen come back appearance.
Tucker, an Atlanta native and graduate of Columbia High School, hasn’t been in a film since 2007, when he last starred as Detective James Carter opposite Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 3, but rumor has it he made so much money from the series that he really didn’t have to.
According to the The Hollywood Reporter, the quick witted funny man/speed demon is now in talks to appear in a new film titled, The Silver Linings Playbook for writer-director David O. Russell and The Weinstein Co.
Playbook, which is scheduled to shoot in the fall, stars Bradley Cooper as a high school teacher just released from a mental institution after four years and looking to reconcile with his wife. It’s an adaptation of the novel by Matthew Quick.
Tucker returned to stand up comedy earlier this year and also hit up a few late night television shows where he showcased his new imitation of friend and former President Bill Clinton, whom he has traveled with overseas.

Proud Papa Ne-Yo and his baby mama Monyetta Shaw were spotted at Atlanta radio personality Frank Ski’s annual wine tasting event over the weekend.
Shaw looks amazing to have just given birth a month ago! The couple, proud parents of a daughter they named Madilyn Grace Smith, are engaged and rumored to have already tied the knot but I’m sure Ne-yo wouldn’t deny his fans that lil tidbit… so I’ll dismiss that one for now.
At any rate they both look happy and healthy despite Ne-yo’s disappointment in his poor “Libra Scales” album sales.
Also spotted at the event were Chris Tucker, Miss Free (formerly of BET’s 106&Park) and more…

Chris Brown and Usher Raymond were spotted courtside at last night’s Atlanta Hawks game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. I heard the Chris Brown was boo’d when his image came up on the JumboTron, while Usher snickered nearby.
The game was full of celebrity sightings, including Atlanta staples like Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton & Chris Tucker. While it was a hot game to see and be seen, the Hawks lost 95-84. Fortunately for them, they get to try again on tonight.
Check out a few courtside photos from last nights game:
