Chris Tucker: From Hollywood to Bollywood….Why not make a stop at Hollyhood?

Are there not enough great black actresses to play opposite to black actors?

In Chris Tucker’s latest venture, titled “Gangster M.D.”, Tucker plays a….well, gangster pretending to be a….well, Doctor. It is based on a Bollywood hit screenplay, and an opposite, preferably Indian is being sought as a love interest for Tucker.

Why are most roles that involve african american male actors either, gang or hustler related? Why not a black love interest? What kind of message are we sending?

Sorry, I had to vent. I like Chris Tucker and I respect trying to earn a dollar or two, but sometimes you gotta ask the whats and why?

Hmmm….Messing with Oprah might be like messing with the Gotti’s, I wouldn’t risk it. :) OK, all jokes aside….

Oprah has an incredible following; Soccer Moms, Desperate Housewives, Dire Actors and Die Hard Fans….Some take her word for anything, yes, she did help James Frey sell a million little books.

50 Cent, Ludi, Ice Cube have equal footing with fans in the Hip Hop world and have validity behind their anger towards Ms. Winfrey.

How will issues be resolved? Oprah, invite them to your show….Talk it through and make good….

Weapons charges, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, sued for attacking a fan, so a little trouble with the law.

Jayceon Taylor aka ‘The Game’ was recently arrested in Burbank, CA and charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, upon searching his blacked out Bentley, police found a set of brass knuckles, yes, brass knuckles, which are harmless until somebody cracks your head with them.

Why was he stopped in the first place? X-ray vision? The cops could see thru the car, therefore able to spot the “weapon”?

Cops got skills these days!
