HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAY CHRIS TUCKER

Christopher “Chris” Tucker, born the youngest son of Mary Louise (née Bryant) and Norris Tucker, Thursday, August 31, 1972 in Atlanta, GA.

Chris Tucker is a household name known as an American actor and comedian.  We know him for his roles in movies as 1994 “House Party 3” as Johnny Booze.  He played in three movies 1995. The first which brought his thin physic and a need to get a haircut bad boy to the screen in “Friday” as Smokey, where he was Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance, Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, and Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Duo (with Ice Cube).  After playing the “Smokey” role, Chris Tucker began to search his life for meaning.  In 1995 he would also play in “Panther” as Bodyguard and “Dead Presidents” as Skip.  He followed this claim to fame in 1997 starring in “Money Talk”, as Franklin Hatchett, along-side actor Charlie Sheen.  Mr. Tucker did not follow-up in his role of Smokey in Next Friday (2000) because he had decided to get high on something greater.  He became a born-again Christian after filming “Money Talks.  His roles in 1997 also included “The Fifth Element” as Ruby Rhod, which unfortunately got him Nominated  for the  Razzie Award for Worst New Star, but he would soon bounce back starring in “Jackie Brown”, with Samuel L. Jackson as Beaumont Livingston.  His big break came when he co-starred alongside Jackie Chan in the 1998 Box Office Hit “Rush Hour”, the beginning of the Trilogy, as Detective James Carter.   He would continue this rein as he would play in Rush Hour II in 2001 and Rush Hour III in 2007.  His amazing talent was enough to get him nominated as follows during his Rush Hour days:

Blockbuster Entertainment Awards for Favorite Duo- Action/Adventure (with Jackie Chan)
MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Duo (with Jackie Chan)
Nominated – Image Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Motion Picture
Nominated – Kid’s Choice Awards for Favorite Movie Actor
Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance
Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Fight (with Jackie Chan against the Chinese gang) 2001 Rush Hour 2 Kid’s Choice Award for Favorite Movie Actor
MTV Movie Award for Best Fight (with Jackie Chan against the Hong Kong gang)
Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance
2007 Rush Hour 3 Nominated – MTV Movie Award for Best Fight (with Jackie Chan against Sun Ming Ming)

In 2011 Chris Tucker returned to the stage as a comedian.

Chris Tucker is a true blood from the ATL.  Tucker was raised in Decatur, Georgia , graduating from Columbia High School in Decatur, GA, after which he sought out his acting career in Los Angeles, CA.

Chris has a son named Destin Christopher Tucker, whom he enjoys spending as much time with as possible.
