Rock revealed on Thursday in an interview with Complex UK that he and producer Scott Rudin are currently working on a new project that he hopes to have ready soon. According to Rock, he meets with producer Scott Rudin “every week now going over this next movie,” and that Rudin wants him “to work at a faster pace.”
He added that Rudin also would like to see most of his cast from Top Five return, singling out Leslie Jones and Tracy Morgan as two he would like to see more of. “Some people shine in Top Five. You might want to see a little more of Leslie Jones or Tracy [Morgan], once he gets better. I think Jerry Seinfeld »

Chicago – Chris Rock isn’t a huge writer/director, but when he does make a film, it’s an event to consider. For example, he made black president tale “Head of State” long before then-senator Barack Obama was even considered for the real-life role, and whether behind the stand-up mic or in an interview, he’s a voice to be reckoned with.
Rock’s comedy is hit-and-miss. Some sequences are excellent, like when Cedric the Entertainer steals the show in an albeit disgusting flashback. Or when he has an epiphany in a jail cell, with a special cameo in place. And there are some good touches too, such as the many faceless cat-calls »

Today Top Five, Chris Rock's latest project as a writer, director and star is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. And to help throw a bit of a spotlight on this great comedy about a comedian trying to navigating fame, his career, and his private life, we've got a small handful of prizes to giveaway to some lucky readers. The top prize is not only a copy of the movie, but a poster signed by Rock and a selection of other cast from the movie. We don't know exactly who else has signed it, but considering how fantastic the entire cast is, we're gonna guess you'll be happy with any combination of these names (or more): Rosario Dawson J.B.

All in good fun, or does this photo make you a bit uncomfortable?
Veteran Espn analyst Dick Vitale went in for a giant smooch on the lips with Kentucky basketball superfan Ashley Judd before the SEC championship game on Sunday -- the 46-year-old actress is an alumna of the University of Kentucky and was there to cheer on the Wildcats -- without warning.

"Eat ur heart out guys / She loves Kentucky!" he wrote.

Ready to laugh? Of course you are! There's no better comedy arriving on home video this month -- March 17 on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital to be exact -- than Chris Rock's Top Five, a semi-autobiographical film written by the comedian/actor about the trials and tribulations of a comic who made it into the movie business and must return to the world he left behind.
Rock has stacked Top Five with talent including Rosario Dawson, Cedric the Entertainer, Jb Smooth, Tracy Morgan, Kevin Hart, Anders Holm, Jay Pharoah, Michael Che, Sherri Shepherd, Leslie Jones, Brian Regan, Whoopi Goldberg and Gabrielle Union. It's definitely R-rated so think along the lines of Rock's stand-up routines.

In the world of celebrity hair, it doesn't get much bigger than Beyoncé—probably in any world for that matter. For many hairstylists it would be a dream to work on that talented head of hair, but for Kim Kimble, it's a reality. And her road to getting there proves that there truly is no one way to success. From humble beginnings as a third generation hairstylist to working with Mary J. Blige, Gabrielle Union, Oprah Winfrey and Whitney Houston to having her own reality show on WEtv, L.A. Hair, and working with Queen Bey, Kim has spent the last 20 years honing her craft to become one of the hardest working women in hair—and boy does she have a lot to show for it. In her »
When it comes to the fresh face effect, there's a fine line between glow and grease. And it's an understandable fear of ending up with the latter that keeps many of us from trying to achieve a dewy complexion. That being said, when you do manage to get the right type of luminosity, the results can be breathtaking. (See: Lupita Nyong'o at every red carpet ever.) So, to get the scoop once and for all on how to do the dew properly, we went to celebrity makeup artist and Reed Clarke founder Fiona Stiles. She's been making stars—such as Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Gabrielle Union—radiant for years and thus has shimmer down to a science. Here's her advice: Product Picks: »
[Youtube "9oLSSePaliM"] Dwyane Wade isn't just a star on the basketball court, says his wife Gabrielle Union. On Tuesday's Tonight Show, the actress bragged that she and her husband dominate the mic at karaoke, too. "We're karaoke fiends," Union, 42, told Jimmy Fallon. Union recalled one vacation when friends pressured Wayne to get on stage and sing: "He was my little Honey Boo Boo, and I was his Mama June," she says. "He gets up there begrudgingly, and he's like a deer in the headlights. He had no go-to song," she continued. "We've been practicing ever since." The Being Mary Jane star told Fallon, »

This isn't just any old shooting contest! Gabrielle Union and Josh Duhamel stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday for one of Jimmy Fallon's most random games yet. The 42-year-old actress and Fallon went head-to-head in his Random Object Shootout game with some help from Fergie's other half -- but there was a catch. Instead of actual basketballs, they all had to make the shots using a plethora of inanimate objects. In the silly video above the "Think Like A Man" star and Fallon attempt to throw everything from a turkey sandwich to a bathtub filled with bouncy balls through the net. Did the fact that Gabrielle is married to Miami Heat player Dwayne Wade give her a slight advantage?Watch the video above to see if she has her hubby's shooting skills! Read more »

Chalk it up to a bad joke?
Hangover star Justin Bartha seemed to do everything in his power to embarrass Jill Martin during her interview for A New York Minute on Sunday, when the two chatted courtside at the Knicks and Cavaliers basketball game. After Martin asked him which of the 2015 Oscar nominees for Best Picture was his favorite, he quickly turned the talk to the reporter's alleged "obsession" with American Sniper's Bradley Cooper.
"You gotta stop texting me about him by the way," Bartha told her. "I know he's sexy, and he's great, but it's enough already."

After Martin denied it with a laugh, Bartha refused to drop it.
"He has asked about you once and I shouldn't have told you that because now you're obsessed and you're always asking me about Bradley," he continued.
And that's when things started getting a little uncomfortable.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »

Gabrielle Union and Josh Duhamel stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night. Despite being interviewed separately to promote their respective projects - the gorgeous Gabrielle talked up the second season of her hit show Being Mary Jane, while Josh got the crowd excited for his new CBS drama Battle Creek - they both joined Jimmy for a game of "Random Object Shootout," which is exactly what it sounds like. Gabrielle's basketball skills should come as no surprise, as she's married to NBA superstar Dwyane Wade, but we have to admit that reigning champ and "ringer" Josh's attempts to throw an Etch A Sketch and tiny bathtub full of bouncy balls were pretty impressive as well. The one question we have is: who had to clean this all up? Watch the hilarious video above now, and check out Christina Aguilera's recent viral video from the late-night show. »
Read our review here and check out the poster below:
Pulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock’s Top Five takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance. Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today—holding it all up to the light in the way only Chris Rock can. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory with the energy of Kanye West and Jay Z, Top Five is an original and radically new kind of American movie.

These nostalgic cult classics may not have won Oscars, but they’ve delivered tons of iconic quotes, life lessons, and may have even inspired a few stand out celebrity Halloween costumes (Keri Hilson and Serge Ibaka as Lisa McDowell and Prince akeem — genius). This time of year, there’s nothing better than snuggling up and having a Netflix night complete with the flicks that made you laugh, cry, and discover your first Hollywood crush (looking at you, Morris Chestnut).
In honor of Black History Month, here are the 10 best black cult classics streaming on Netflix right now. Since we know Netflix likes to change their movie line-ups like underwear, we’ve saved you the trouble of a search.
