Profile Bio Text
Christopher "Chris" Tucker (born August 31, 1972) is an American actor and comedian most widely known for his roles as Smokey in Friday and James Carter in the Rush Hour trilogy. Chris Tucker was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the son of Mary and Norris Tucker. His mother was closely involved in church work, and his father was an independent businessman who owned a janitorial service. Tucker was raised in Decatur, Georgia. After graduating from Columbia High School, Tucker moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy and movies.
Tucker`s first major movie role was alongside rapper Ice Cube in the 1995 film Friday. He also starred with Charlie Sheen in 1997`s Money Talks and alongside Bruce Willis in The Fifth Element the same year. He later starred in the 1998 martial arts action comedy Rush Hour and its sequels, Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3, in which he played James Carter, an abrasive, wise-cracking detective. Realizing the success of the first Rush Hour film, Tucker held out from studio bosses until they paid his price tag of $20 million for Rush Hour 2; the film became an enormous success. The other star, Jackie Chan, received $15 million and gross points.
Tucker is friends with fellow star Jackie Chan, as well as singer Michael Jackson, and appeared in Jackson`s video "You Rock My World" (2001) and on the intro of the track on the album Invincible. He also appeared at the beginning of the music video for "California Love" by Tupac Shakur. A friend of Bill Clinton, Tucker has travelled with the former President overseas, though he endorsed Barack Obama rather than Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries. He also has a son named Destin Christopher Tucker, who was born in 2000 and lives with his mother in Los Angeles. He resides in the luxury community of Bella Colina in Montverde, Florida, located west of Orlando. He also lives in a gated community in Tarzana, California, where he raises his children.
