Chris Rock on Tracy Morgan's Recovery and How Et's Nischelle Turner Inspired 'Top Five'

12 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Chris Rock's Top Five is coming to theaters Dec. 12 and the comedian admitted to Et's Nischelle Turner that she inspired one of the moments in the movie.

"Three years ago at Sundance you said to me, 'So wait, are you a real journalist or Miss Detroit?'" Nischelle reminded Chris during her interview. "And lo and behold, the first thing you say in the movie to Rosario [Dawson] is [the same thing] ... Basically, I inspired this film."

News: What You Didn't Know About Chris Rock

"Yes," Chris admitted. "You kind of inspired this film."

In the film, written and directed by Chris, he plays Andre Allen, a comedian who tries to make it as a serious actor when his reality TV star fiancée (Gabrielle Union) talks him into broadcasting their wedding on her show. Rosario plays a journalist assigned to interview Andre for The New York Times.

Chris says that character is very loosely based on himself -- with some »

Chris Rock explains the inspiration for 'Hammy the Bear' in 'Top Five'

25 November 2014 7:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sometimes if the parts aren't coming to you, you simply need to create them. It's an old story in the entertainment business and the genesis of Chris Rock's fantastic new flick "Top Five." Rock has won four Emmy Awards and is known as being one of the top stand-up comics of his generation, but if he was going to make something "meaningful" on the big screen he was going to have to do some soul searching. That meant trying to make a movie better than the previous films he either wrote or directed, including "Down to Earth" (screenplay), "Head of State" (wrote and directed) and the underrated "I Think I Love My Wife," arguably his most personal work before "Top Five." Speaking to HitFix this past weekend, Rock says his thought process was: "If I want to work in the type of movies that I want to work in, »

25 November 2014 3:53 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Monday, it was announced that the grand jury in Ferguson, Mo. would not be indicting police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, which occurred on Aug. 19.

Reaction to the grand jury's decision was immediate and divisive, with strongly worded opinions being posted across the Internet by those slamming the decision and those supporting it.

Chris Rock Is Tired of PDAs in 'Top Five' (Exclusive)

24 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There were few movies out of this year's Toronto International Film Festival that were more buzzed about or openly discussed than Chris Rock's "Top Five." This is something of a feat, especially considering the amount of Oscar-contending features that either debuted or screened there. And we've got a brand new clip from the movie, opening on December 12th. So get ready to feel the buzz of the movie that swept Toronto.

In the movie, Rock stars as Andre Allen, a comedian turned movie star suffering from the typical movie star chaos: his recent historical epic is bombing, he's engaged to a vacuous heat seeker (Gabrielle Union) who intends to turn their wedding into a multimedia event (notice the small Bravo logo that brilliantly pops up at the bottom of the screen), and he's being grilled by a hard-hitting journalist (Rosario Dawson).

See the 10 Things I Hate About You Cast Reunite, 15 Years Later

17 November 2014 4:45 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

10 Things I Hate About You is one of the best high school movies of 1999, and some of the cast recently got together for a little reunion. Over the weekend, the film's screenwriter, Karen McCullah, tweeted a photo of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Keegan (sporting a sweater cape), David Krumholtz, and Susan May Pratt, along with cowriter Kirsten Smith. Aside from the late Heath Ledger, there are some notable absences; Julia Stiles, Larisa Oleynik, and Gabrielle Union are all missing. The fact that Keegan is wearing neither a white nor black t-shirt is distressing, but the fact that this happened at all is pretty awesome. Need more '90s throwbacks? You should probably check out this Dawson's Creek reunion too. 10 Things I Hate About You reunion pic.twitter.com/SVwRIu4Tr2 — Karen McCullah (@KarenMcCullah1) November 15, 2014 Front Page Image Source: Buena Vista Pictures »
