Chris Tucker Tapped for Sequel to No Country for Old Men

Rush Hour Star backs out of House Party 6 Contract to Accept Role

Still riding high on the success of the third installment in the Rush Hour franchise earlier this year, actor Chris Tucker has been chosen to costar in the sequel to the Coen brother's neo-classic No Country For Old Men.

When asked about choosing Tucker to costar alongside Javier Bardem, who will revisit his role as Anton Chigurh in the sequel, Ethan Coen explained, "Joel and I have had a lot of people ask us about picking Chris for this part, but to us the choice was obvious. When it comes to sequels, Chris is Hollywood's golden boy. Everyone knows about Rush Hour, but what about the Friday and House Party franchises? It's obvious that casting Chris in a movie is the ticket to three, four, and possibly even five successful sequels."

Tucker, who was recently spotted playing skee ball at a Dave and Buster's in his hometown of Atlanta, admitted that he was surprised when he received word from his agent that he was being considered for the part, "I'm looking forward to working with Jon and Eddy Comb (sic), and to watching Country Time for Old Maid (sic), after I watch Rush Hour 3."

No Country For Old Men 2: Wedding Bells is set to begin production in Spring 2009 and will also feature performances from Matthew Perry and Brittany Murphy.

As a fan of Chris Tucker, I am pleased to see that he will be taking on more challenging roles. Will he still kick people?
