And KEVIN HART (Cedric) If there's one thing Kevin Hart can
do, it's sell shoes. If there's one thing Kevin Hart can do better than sell
shoes, it's explode into one of the foremost comedians and entertainers in the
Hart has continued to work non-stop and 2014 is no exception. Hart currently
stars in About Last Night, a re-make of the iconic 1986 film, which opened to
huge box-office success, and Ride Along, opposite Ice Cube, which grossed over
100 million, already spawning a sequel which is scheduled to shoot later this
year. Kevin is also set to begin filming Get Hard with Will Ferrell, and can be
seen later this year in Miramax Films' The Wedding Ringer, and his highly
successful series, Real Husbands of Hollywood which premiers its third season in
September. Kevin's determination and work ethic is simply a roll-over from a
banner 2013 where he starred in Grudge Match for Warner Brothers, opposite
Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro, and Think Like a Man Too, the sequel to
its enormously successful predecessor, for Screen Gems. Kevin also released a
feature version of his comedy show Let Me Explain, in the same year.
Hart began his career sizing men and women for footwear, when a chance,
electrifying performance at amateur night in a Philadelphia comedy club changed
his life. Kevin quit his shoe salesman job and began performing full time at
such venues as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline's, Stand-Up NY, The Laugh
Factory, and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. However, it was his first
appearance at the "Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival" that led Kevin into
roles in feature films such as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, and Along Came
Polly opposite Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.
In 2012, Hart was tapped to host the 2012 MTV VMA's, garnering much industry
praise for his appearance, before his next comedy tour, "Let Me Explain" took
him to 90 American cities along with Europe and Africa. Records have not
withstood under his LME tour either, as Kevin became only the second American in
history to sell out London's O2 Arena. Kevin spent the fall of 2012 filming two
movies back to back: Screen Gem's re-make of Sexual Perversity titled About Last
Night, and Universal's buddy Cop movie Ride Along, opposite Ice Cube. Kevin
continued his incredible run with a starring role in Screen Gem's Think Like A
Man, a comedy based on Steve Harvey's bestselling book, which grossed $95
Million worldwide, and had a supporting role in the Universal, Nick Stoller
comedy, Five Year Engagement, produced by Judd Apatow.
In September, 2011 Hart released "Laugh At My Pain," the feature film version
of his comedy tour (under the same name). The movie grossed over $7 million, and
was 2011's most successful film of those released in less than 300 theaters. The
LAMP tour was so successful, it catapulted Hart to 2011's number one comedian on
Ticketmaster, and in February, 2011, he sold out the Nokia Theater for two
nights in a row, breaking the record previously set by Eddie Murphy. This lead
to the LAMP DVD hitting double platinum in February 2012, after being on sale
for only a month.

Ben Stiller, Death at a Funeral, Fool's Gold and The 40 Year Old Virgin.
