Chris Tucker: Fatherhood made me more responsible
Celebrity Baby Blog - Forest Hills, NY, USA - Rush Hour 3 star Chris Tucker's next project won't be Rush Hour 4 -- at least not yet -- but rather a stand-up comedy movie, in which he hopes to cover a variety of topics from working with Jackie Chan to fatherhood. Chris is dad to Destin Christopher, 8 1/2, from a previous relationship, and wants to share with fans how fatherhood has changed him.

Fatherhood changed me in a way like, you, it takes awhile to realize you're a father, it's like, 'I'm a father. Somebody's depending on me.' So, it's like, it's different, but it changed me in a

The High-Paid Enigma That Is Chris Tucker
Conde Nast Portfolio - New York, NY, USA - So is the much-maligned "dilettante" director Brett Ratner feeling some vindication today? Probably not much. Despite the six-year haitus between since the last installment, Rush Hour 3 earned $50.2 million and the top slot at the box office, but hardly an overwhelming financial success for the beleaguered New Line, falling short of Rush Hour 2's $67.4 million opening weekend. Making the opening even less impressive is that fact that the film was reportedly over budget. And then there's the star salaries to consider. Jackie Chan is reportedly earning $15 million against 15% of the gross. Ratner is getting a little

In No 'Rush' for Six Years, Tucker Returns to Acting
Washington Post - United States - It's been six years since his last movie. Six years since he tossed on a police uniform, stood next to Jackie Chan and kick-boxed a few bad guys.

Six years that Chris Tucker has spent, he says, "enjoying my celebrity."

Which sounds like an awfully indulgent hiatus. And sure enough, when he was arrested two years ago for reckless driving in Georgia, he was behind the wheel of a shiny new Bentley Continental.

But that incident is an anomaly for the 34-year-old comedian. He says he was late for church the day he was pulled over. And when he talks about "enjoying his

Jackie Chan is running on fumes in uninspired 'Rush Hour 3'
Seattle Post Intelligencer - USA - After a six-year hiatus, the "Rush Hour" brand has lost its drive. The third film in the odd-couple action-comedy franchise features a once breathtakingly acrobatic action star now past his prime, a story that could have been sketched on the back of a cocktail napkin, a script that confuses exposition for dialogue, and recycled stunts that whiz by slickly and spiritlessly in a brisk 90 minutes.

The loopy energy of Chris Tucker, bouncing off straight-man Jackie Chan, is all that colors the spaces between the connect-the-dots plotting.

Chan's no-nonsense Hong Kong Chief Inspector Lee and Tucker's slippery, spring-loaded L.A. cop James Carter

Chris Tucker wants to 'do something different'
MSNBC - USA - “Rush Hour 3” star Chris Tucker has finally resurfaced after a six-year hiatus from the big screen, but he’s got some explaining to do.

Who is he? Who does he want to be? Where has he been? Why did he make the producers of “Rush Hour 3” wait six years before agreeing to go another round with Jackie Chan?

And, oh yeah, why is he friends with Michael Jackson again?

Well, let’s not go there because that’s for the two of them to decipher, but after several recent conversations with Tucker at various events, the answers to the other questions are far less

Isaiah Washington Focusing on 'Day-to-Day Life'
People Magazine - USA - Isaiah Washington says he's moving on after being fired from Grey's Anatomy.

"In the coming months, all I'm working on right now is trying to focus on day-to-day life and what I'm doing with the foundation, what I'm doing with the family," Washington, 43, told PEOPLE Friday. "It starts at the home."

The actor is chairman of the Gondobay Manga Foundation, which works to improve life in Sierra Leone (the foundation was inspired by Washington's discovery that he is genetically linked to that country's Mende people).

And next month he'll go to Ghana for the African Union Summit, where he and 50 other
