As an actor, high energy Tucker paired up with one of rap’s greatest, Ice Cube, in the 1995 cult classic, Friday. As “Smokey”, Tucker utilized his keen since of comedy and acting while developing a signature silver screen persona that would gain him international fame and recognition. He then gave a notable performance alongside veteran actor Lorenz Tate in Dead Presidents and landed co-starring roles in memorable films such as Money Talks, with actor Charlie Sheen; The Fifth Element, partnered with action hero Bruce Willis; and Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown.
Beyond the popularity and notoriety of the previous years’ films, it was the 1998 blockbuster hit Rush Hour that amassed a global following to catapult Tucker to international stardom. The action comedy, starring Tucker and martial artist Jackie Chan, would transfix audiences and surpass box office records, making the feature length film a certified success. The widely popular movie spawned an even more popular sequel further establishing Tucker as one of the highest paid actors in history. The third installment of the mega hit went on to debut as the number one movie in America.
