V-103's Big Tigger Morning Show: Chris Tucker answers questions about dating and move sequels for Friday and Rush Hour

View descriptionShare

Admittedly rising to fame rather quickly as a young comedian and actor, from Def Jam, to Friday and the Rush Hour franchise, Chris Tucker made a bold and brave move and decided to take a step back, travel the world and see what else he could do.

After a certain point “I knew it wasn’t about me anymore, because when I grew up I wanted to be the biggest comic, biggest comedian, biggest actor like Eddie Murphy, but then I started traveling and seeing like poverty to an extreme and seeing different things,” making him realize “ I wanna do more, before doing more with his career.”

Chris came to the realization, “the best way to do that is to take a step back and then come back and then I can do whatever I wanna do,” which ladies and gents, brings us to now.

Coming back, “this is the type of stuff I wanna do," Chris admitted referring to his part in the movie Air, “stuff that I’m interested in."

“These types of movies have so many elements to them, and going forward I wanna do stuff that's never been done before, different movies, and movies that I can learn from and other people can learn from too.”

Chris also got into some of his famous memories with another famous MJ — Michael Jackson, shared which places out of all his travels impacted him the most, and even briefly addressed his dating life.

Ready to get back to work, Chris promises “a lot of good stuff coming,” that’ll be “on a whole other level.” While he didn’t divulge the entire list, Chris did offer up that a Rush Hour 4 is a big possibility “because I love working with Jackie, but I got some new stuff I think y’all really gonna like.”

As for a him taking another stab at Friday, Chris is unsure even though he loves that the film took on a “life of its own,” spawning two additional films after the first one. So “if it's possible and it comes together right I would try to do it, but… I’m a perfectionist, so if it ain’t gonna be great…”

As always, Tigger closed out the conversation with a game of “One’s Gotta Go,” listen to it all in the clip above.
