‘I Took A Gamble When I Quit My Job:’ Kevin Hart Talks Taking Risks To Follow Your Dreams
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube recently chatted it up with JET magazine to discuss their new cop comedy, “Ride Along.” During their interview the fellas opened up about everything from taking major risks to chase their dreams and other forthcoming projects.
On why he signed on to do the project:
“Ice Cube: It was fun with a simple premise. I wanted it to be entertaining and for us to be compared to some of the great comedy duos. From 48 Hours to Lethal Weapon to Bad Boys, I wanted Ride Along to have the same feel.”
On taking risks:
“Kevin: I took a gamble when I quit my job, which meant putting my all into stand-up comedy. That really could’ve gone either way, but it’s hard to tell me something isn’t going to work, especially when I’m betting on myself. I know what I’m capable of.”
On upcoming 2014 projects:
“Ice Cube: I’m working on a movie about NWA and music. Of course, I’m always focused on my family. I have a 19-yearold daughter and my youngest son is 13. I’m teaching them to make sound decisions and to know right from wrong; it really isn’t complicated.”
“Kevin: I’m working on scripts and a new show for ABC. I still have Real Husbands of Hollywood and about four movies lined up. I’m looking forward to making more films and producing more projects under Hartbeat Productions. I want to show people this guy won’t stop.”
