In Kevin Smith's fantasia, there is a
13th Apostle: the disgruntled and outspoken Rufus, played by CHRIS ROCK. A
rising comic star, Rock made his feature film debut in "Beverly Hills Cop
II" with Eddie Murphy. He went on to write, produce and star in the rap
comedy "CB4" and a series of memorable roles in the romantic comedy
"Boomerang," Mario Van Peebles' "Panthers" and "I'm
Gonna Git You Sucka!" for director Keenan Ivory Wayans. Rock's vocal
talents are featured in the recent Eddie Murphy hit "Dr. Doolittle"
and he recently appeared in Richard Donner's "Lethal Weapon 4."
In addition to his career on the big
screen, Rock is known for his scathingly funny stand-up routines which were
brought to a wide audience attention when he became part of the casts of
"Saturday Night Live" and "In Living Color."
Currently, Rock hosts the Cable ACE
Award-winning "The Chris Rock Show" on HBO. In 1997, he received two
Emmy Awards for his HBO special "Bring The Pain" and his HBO special
"Big Ass Jokes" garnered Rock another Cable ACE Award.
Rock's recent activities include
appearing on Comedy Central's "Politically Incorrect," hosting the MTV
Video Music Awards, recording the Grammy-nominated CD "Roll With the
New" and writing the New York Times best-selling book Rock This.
