Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube is headed back to the big screen early next year in the highly anticipated buddy-cop comedy Ride Along.
According to the film’s director, Tim Story, Ride Along is a comedic take on the gritty crime dramaTraining Day.
During a visit on the set of Ride Along in Atlanta last December, Ice Cube opened up about his new role, and talked about his on-screen chemistry with Kevin Hart.
“Working with somebody like Kevin Hart is rejuvenating…” Ice Cube said. “I think Kevin’s brand of comedy is broader. He reminds me of a young Eddie Murphy….when Eddie Murphy was sharp as a tack, witty and on time. And he can pull it all off.. he can pull off the physical, he can pull off the intellectual, he can pull off the subtle. It’s just cool to work with somebody so good.”
Throughout his film career spanning more than 20 years, Ice Cube has collaborated with some of Hollywood’s funniest comedians, including Mike Epps, Katt Williams, John Witherspoon and Chris Tucker.
The 44-year-old actor says that the key to his success in the buddy-comedy film genre has been his ability “to make sure the comedy is funny, and not just comedy.”
“We make sure we have a great script so that we don’t force feed anything,” he says. “I think it helps people relax and laugh at it.”

“This is the fact that THUGS make when they catch Beyonce’s towel at her concert. #DblockNi$$as #Thuggin #BeeHive #RealRapRaw #BestConcertEver”
Beyoncé showed Kevin some more love by putting the mic in his face and letting him sing along to one of her songs, probably “Irreplaceable” judging by the outfit.

Torrei Hart has been quite busy pursuing her own career in comedy and movies, showing the world that she’s more than just Kevin Hart’s ex-wife. While promoting some of her new projects, the Atlanta Exes star sat down for a candid interview with AfterBuzz TV, where she also discussed more personal subjects like sex with Kevin Hart, dating and relationships. Check out a few of her interview highlights below.
On sex with Kevin:
“If he’s putting it down, you gon’ do something crazy. You don’t wanna no one else getting that. He [Kevin] did [put it down]. That’s why I gave him two beautiful children and married his behind. You don’t marry people, and this is my opinion, you marry people because there’s a great a relationship, but if the sex is not great, then I’m sorry. That plays a big part in relationships.”
On dating post Kevin Hart:
“My expectation is loyalty. Consistency: bring something to the table. You have to have a job. I ain’t nobody’s sugar momma. Funny! I still need funny. I cannot be with a man who’s not funny. I’ve always like funny men, even before Kevin. I’m silly. I like to have fun.”
On going through a guy’s phone:
“If you leaving your phone, you have to go through it. You have to go through the other person’s phone. If they leave it, you have to. I don’t trust it. Men just… ughh”
On Kevin’s “wife in the trunk” joke:
“I told y’all I don’t trust nobody. It didn’t exactly happen like [Kevin said it did]. You know comedians have to exaggerate. But it wasn’t a trunk, it was a truck. I wasn’t in the trunk, that’s a little crazy. “

Just because a relationship ends, it doesn’t mean you have to be out in the streets bad-mouthing your ex, starting Twitter beefs or sitting on the sidewalk pretending to be poor. It seems today we’ve featured quite a few couples on the site who prove this is all too possible. And in a recent interview with CocoaFab, Torrei Hart prove that she and ex husband, comedian Kevin Hart. She spoke about co-parenting, how she’s fared in the dating scene and the type of man she’s looking for this time around.
How communication is the key to their co-parenting
Torrei: Definitely trial and error. Definitely now it’s been about two and a half years since the divorce. In the beginning it wasn’t this easy. Now we’re kind of like on a good schedule. We have a very good schedule. If we need to go off the schedule which is really all communication. Communication every single day almost every morning and just knowing what’s going on with the kid’s schedule. That’s pretty much it. I would have to say just daily communication…I’m like look we have two kids. We have to stay in one accord and communicate. I’m just a stickler for that and it’s good he is the same way. It works for us. We both realize it’s about the children and so we make it work.
Torrei: I dated. It’s not my main focus right now. If I meet a nice guy yes definitely I will date. I’m very picky. Kevin is an awkward man to follow. They can’t be a loser. They have to be funny. They have to make me laugh a lot and I think I’m still in that kind of comparison stage where I’ve been on a couple of days this guy he’s trying to make me laugh and he’s not don’t try just be. Some men I went on a date with and I could tell they’re trying to be funny and if that’s not who you are be who you are because that’s a problem. Being that I was with such a guy who’s such a public figure?
What type of man she’s looking for?
Torrei: He doesn’t have to be a comedian just that he makes me laugh. I need to laugh a lot. That’s the type of person I am. I can’t be around people who are too serious because it bores and then I’m just like oh my God I’ve got to get out of there. I need that humor. I also need loyalty. I need stability. I need somebody pretty much somebody I can trust more than anything but I do like the funny man.

Of all the people I’ve had the opportunity to interview/meet since I started working at MadameNoire, after Iyanla Vanzant, Kevin Hart was the one I most looked forward to. When someone makes you laugh until you cry, they’ll forever hold a special place in your heart. And Kevin Hart is that person for me. And though he’s said some side-eye worthy things about black women I still ride for him. Sue me. Anyway, whether you love or loathe Kevin Hart, you have to admit, in the comedic arena he’s winning. And if you don’t believe me, just take a look at the ways in which his standup has influenced our daily lexicon.
In light of all the trouble the Philadelphia School System has faced in recent months, Kevin Hart has decided to help the children of the city who are undoubtedly suffering.
The comedian took $250,000 of his money to purchase 500 laptops for the the school system as well as the parks and recreation department. Two hundred computers were distributed to 27 recreation centers and the remaining three hundred were given to eight elementary school, according to Philly.com.
But Kevin Hart also showed up to four of the schools that received laptops and came with a message: learning is the key. As he told students at Hartranft John F School: “You now have the ability to take these computers and do what nobody else can do, which is learn right now. I want you guys to take advantage of this, man. This is something I’m very, very serious about.”
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said he and Hart first began talking about the city during Jay Z’s “Made In America” Festival in July. In late September, Kevin Hart contacted Mayor Nutted saying he wanted to donate computers and come speak to the kids.
Back in March, it was announced that 23 schools in Philadelphia would be closing at the end of the 2012-2013 school year and many others school had delayed 2013-2014 opens, all due to budget cuts.
Kevin Hart took to Twitter saying the reason he made an announcement on Instagram video about what he was doing was to hopefully get more people in his position to follow his lead.
No matter the reason, his donation means so much to so many and I’m sure those laptops are appreciated.
ABC knows a potential hit when it sees it. The network has snagged a new comedy by the comedian of the moment, Kevin Hart.
ABC has made a pilot commitment for a half-hour comedy project based on the Hart’s stand-up act. The series takes a candid look at the post-divorce life of a couple trying to forge a friendship for the sake of their kids, despite their differences, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Right now Hart doesn’t plan to star in the show, but will likely play a recurring role if the series goes forward.
Hart and his 3 Arts manager, Dave Becky (who works on Louie), will executive produce.
There’s no denying that Hart has become one of the most successful stand-up acts working today. “In addition to his comic timing, executives across both film and TV are drawn to his ability to connect with his fans, which includes 9 million Twitter followers. It is for that reason that Hart’s name has found itself onto a shortlist of talent who can get a movie greenlighted today,” reports THR. That’s a huge statement given the fact that names like Tom Cruise and Will Smith, who used to open movies and bring in the big box office weekend totals, have faltered this year.
Hart actually got his big break on television in a recurring role on Judd Apatow’s short-lived cult series Undeclared, which ended on Fox in 2001. Hart has since appeared on a variety of TV projects, from ABC’s Modern Family to BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood, for which he executive produces and stars. (That show has its season premiere tonight.) And let’s not forget his successful standup career; his tours have sold out at arenas worldwide. Then there was his stand-up doc, Let Me Explain, which grossed more than $32 million.
Other film credits for Hart include Think Like a Man, This Is the End and upcoming films Ride Along and About Last Night. Obviously Hart has come a long way since Soul Plane, which was panned by critics as the worse movie ever.
As far as the new ABC comedy, we wonder who will star as the divorced couple. Any suggestions?
Kevin Hart is arguably the hardest working comedian in show business these days and he’s adding a new untitled divorced-couple comedy to his body of work for ABC.
The comedy series looks to give viewers a raw look inside the life of a couple after their divorce, as they attempt to be friends in order to co-parent their children.
Writers and producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, from “Community” and “Scrubs,” will work on the project, which is based on Kevin Hart’s original stand-up material.
But if the show does get picked up, we shouldn’t look for Hart to be its star; although he may take a recurring role. His main role will be executive producer, along with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky, Goldman, and Donovan.

If VH1′s Hollywood Exes wasn’t really lighting your rachet fire, it seems that the rumors are true about its spin-off, Atlanta Exes. We told you earlier in the summer about rumors that Cee-Lo Green’s ex-wife, Pilar Sanders and Tameka Raymond were going to be cast on the show. Fast forward to fall, and it sounds like the show will be a go. One of the ladies you will see include Kevin Hart’s ex, Torrei, and she spilled the beans on the other confirmed cast mates (Raymond, Idris Elba’s ex Kim, and Christina Johnson, ex-wife of Cee Lo, will all be involved) and why she felt the need to do reality TV. While speaking with HipHopHollywood on the red carpet of the ASCAP’s 5th Annual “Women Behind the Music Series,”she explained a few things.
During their interview, the beauty discussed what her ex-husband, Kevin Hart, had to say about her doing the show. She says that while he started off pretty apprehensive, he became more supportive of her decision.
“I did talk to my ex about it and at first he just wanted to know why I wanted to do it, and I just told him I think it’s something I need to do for me. At first he was a little apprehensive about it but once I told him ‘I assure you I will not be fighting, I will not be cussing, I will not embarrass our kids, our family, you have nothing to worry about, he was like okay go for it, do it.”
Torrei also answered the million dollar question: Why? Why do a reality TV show about being the ex of a famous person. According to her, it’s not about bashing anybody (literally and figuratively), but to give people a better impression of who she is. She says that people have one impression of her because of the media and Kevin’s stand-up comedy, but she’s very different:
“I just feel like it’s a way to see who I am. In the past I’ve been put out in the press, people have this assumption about me, and it’s a way for people to really get to see who I am. I want to do the show. I think it’s a great opportunity. It’s a great platform, and I’m excited about it.”
But don’t get it twisted. Torrei says the women you see won’t be about a lot of negativity, but will seek to empower women.
“And the women that are on the cast, I really love the women. I think we can empower women, and they can see that reality TV can be positive, it’s not just fighting and negativity.”
I can kind of understand why she would want to do something like this. I purely know what I know about her based on Kevin Hart’s jokes (crazy right?), and if she’s trying to get her name out there (and collect a nice check…), why not? But what do you think?
Kevin Hart is already the size of a small child so he did himself no favors when he posted this pic on IG of him and his pajama gang — except for showing quality father-son/daughter time.
About 10 hours ago, the 34-year-old comedian posted the pic above, saying:
We look good as a unit damn it!!!! #FunDad#OnesieOnYouSuckas #Harts
Y’all know he has no sense, which is why I can’t get over that serious face he’s giving us — much like he’s doing in the video below. Apologies ahead of time to Drake fans, but Kevin’s imitation of the Toronto rapper and his hallelujah hands is so dead on. Check out the clip below and caption this pic of Kevin and his Onesie unit.
