While Chris Tucker never officially disappeared, he decided to start working every once in blue moon despite being on a hot streak in the mid-to late ’90s. The only work he would do for a good decade was the Rush Hour franchise, though he did take a role in the Academy Award-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook in 2012.
