The BET Awards host returns to comedy after hiatus.
Chris Tucker is going back to comedy!
This year's BET Awards host, who took a long hiatus from the spotlight after shooting Rush Hour 3 in 2007, has signed on for the film Second Honeymoon, confirms The Hollywood Reporter. The comedian and actor will play a man who returns to Antigua with his wife 10 years after they were married there and tries to recreate the past, only to get caught in a series of unfortunate events.
Tucker had a supporting role in last year's sleeper hit Silver Linings Playbook and is rumored to be returning for a fourth installment of the Rush Hour franchise in the near future.
