Fans have been holding their breath in anticipation of the next “Friday” movie, which they were hoping would bring back all the original cast members. No cast member is more central to that wish than Chris Tucker, who fans are hoping will reprise his role as “Smokey” from the 1995 original.
Tucker has been cool on the idea of returning to “Friday,” as evidenced in an interview last year where he said “I don’t know if we can do another one,” he said. “I don’t know if I can do another one because I was so young and it was a moment in time, but we’ll see.”
Nevertheless, Friday producer Ice Cube is forging ahead, recently announcing that the “Last Friday” movie has received approval to be made.
Human Nature recently caught up with Chris Tucker at the 2017 Coach Woodson Invitational in Las Vegas and sought to end the speculation on whether not he’ll be joining the next “Friday” movie. In the interview, Tucker also discusses the upcoming season for the LA Lakers and Clippers for which he is a fan.
