Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan and LL Cool J are among the stars who will get a pretty significant piece of real estate in Hollywood next year. The actors will receive stars on the famous Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Monday.
They join Bradley Cooper, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Keaton, Steve Carell and Bruno Mars, among others who will take up residence on Hollywood Boulevard sometime next year.
How does one get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? By meeting several criteria, Time uncovered last year. Firstly, the applicant (yes, stars have to fill out an application) must be at least five years deep into their careers in one of entertainment's "core categories," i.e. film, television, music, radio or theater, and they must be legitimately accomplished. (Remember when the Chamber of Commerce refused Kim Kardashian a star?)
Next, they need to pony up $30,000 to pay for the ceremony in which they're given the star and for the maintenance of the star thereafter. Lastly, they must agree to show up, live and in person, for the big unveiling ceremony.
We think these three icons are well-deserving of this honor and can't wait to see them standing next to their square footage of the Hollywood dream next year!
