Kevin Hart takes skit to next level
Comedian Kevin Hart has built his career around making people laugh at him and he did this especially well during the 2011 BET Awards with his "Real Husbands of Hollywood" skit. BET reports the skit did so well that the network has decided to make it into a new original series.
Hart isn't the only funnyman set to star in the show, actor Nick Cannon and model Boris Kodjoe will also be involved, as will crooner Robin Thicke and many other guest stars. BET sat down with Hart to gain a better feel for what the upcoming series will be like.
"There's nothing like it on television. It's a mock reality show with a "Curb Your Enthusiasm"-feel - with me being that Larry David type. Every actor in it is not afraid to make fun of themselves," Hart told the news source regarding the new show. "It stars Nick Cannon, Duane Martin, Boris Kodjoe, Robin Thicke and myself. Then Nelly, Trey Songz, Faison Love and Cedric the Entertainer are part of the many people who come by to do [guest star] favors. Mariah Carey is doing one, so is Shane Mosley. It's mock reality but we're treating it like it's real."
As for how the group is bonding, Hart said he enjoys the cast, but also made sure to bring up some issues he has with each performer. He joked he has a rivalry with Cannon that stems from Cannon's film "Drumline." He also admitted he's jealous that Kodjoe is a model and that Thicke is married to the gorgeous Paula Patton.
"I'm jealous of Boris because he models and I don't think he's that attractive. Robin, I think that his singing career is a fluke and Paula Patton really wants me," Hart joked to BET. "It's so much nonsense that we've made it appear to be real. I think it's really going to be something to see. We have a special thing and I'm really excited to be apart of it."
With the smack talking already in full force, fans are sure to see some big time (and hysterical) fights during the season. The show is scheduled to be added to BET's sitcom lineup for 2013, The Urban Daily reports.
Are you excited about the show? Will you tune in?
