Sony Executive Calls Kevin Hart a Whore In Leaked Emails, Hart Reacts

By now you’ve likely heard of those leaked Sony emails—messages from executives that target everyone from Angelina Jolie to Joel McHale (who just wanted a discount on a TV, man!). Philly’s Kevin Hart was also the subject of one email, in which executive Clint Culpepper told a colleague that, “I’m not saying [Kevin Hart’s] a whore, but he’s a whore.” The comment was made after Hart requested extra money to promote his film Think Like a Man Too.

Not to be one to let such things go, Hart took to Instagram with this message:

WATCH: Kevin Hart Does The Dougie On Good Day

FOX 29 News Philadelphia | WTXF-TV

Kevin Hart is in town to promote his new film (yes, another one!), The Wedding Ringer, which opens in theaters January 16th. This morning he stopped by Fox 29’s Good Day to chat with hosts Alex Holley and Mike Jerrick, and was taken by surprise when Holley challenged him to a Dougie dance-off. She, apparently, is known around the studio as The Dougie Queen, but Hart held his own when they got up to dance–well at least until his knee gave out on him. Check out the clip above.

Kevin Hart Gets Behind the Wheel with Jerry Seinfeld

Screen shot 2014-11-07 at 11.12.37 AM

Jerry Seinfeld’s hit web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee premiered its fifth season yesterday, and wouldn’t you know it, it features comedians getting coffee. Seinfeld’s driving buddy this time is Philly’s Kevin Hart. If you love Kevin Hart, then enjoy the episode. If you don’t, well, it also features a 1959 Porsche RSK Spyder and a special cameo by Cosmo Kramer, a.k.a. Michael Richards. See the full video here. 

Early Philly-Set Kevin Hart Sitcom The Big House Coming to DVD

thebighosuePop Quiz: What sitcom starring Philly’s own Kevin Hart premiered 10 years ago and is coming to DVD this January? What, you don’t know the answer? Don’t worry, no one does.

The Big House, an extremely short-lived, six-episode sitcom that ran on ABC in 2004, starred Hart as the anti-Fresh Prince. His character, cleverly named Kevin Hart, is forced to leave his happy, wealthy life as a student in Malibu once his father is arrested for embezzlement. Kevin must then tragically move in with working class relatives in Philadelphia and attend Drexel University. What a rough life! (Hart featured Drexel as an homage to his alumna mother, Nancy. Aw!)

We may love Kevin Hart, but with such a played-out premise it’s no wonder the show was axed. That isn’t keeping Olive Films from releasing the episodes on DVD Tuesday, January 13th, in order to capitalize on Hart’s upcoming film The Wedding Ringer opening Friday, January 16th.

While you eagerly await your pre-order of all six episodes, check out the trailer for The Wedding Ringer below:

André 3000 Wants Kevin Hart to Play Big Boi in Outkast Biopic

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Outkast’s André 3000 chats about playing Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming Jimi: All is By My Side. During the course of the conversation he teases an Outkast biopic, and how he’d like a certain Philly comedian to play his sidekick Big Boi.

Rapper André Benjamin worked obsessively on his startling portrayal of Jimi Hendrix in the new film Jimi: All Is By My Side, and he already has ideas about a potential biopic for his group Outkast. “It would be great to make an Outkast movie right now, but instead of really serious, make it a full comedy — like Kevin Hart would play Big Boi,” he said of his rapping partner last night. And as himself? “We should cast somebody stupid — like Leonardo [DiCaprio].”

The Rover: Good early critical buzz from the Sydney Film Festival, where this Aussie production from the talented David Michôd made its debut, has propelled it onto a lot of critic’s must-see lists. The story concerns yet another dystopian future, after a worldwide economic collapse, and a badass former soldier (Guy Pearce) who is forced to track down his stolen car—the poor wretch’s lone possession—with the help of an unwitting innocent (Robert Pattinson). Something about the harsh, largely barren Outback lends itself to these kinds of hard-bitten, rough-edged tales. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 68%
