It’s time we come to terms with the fact that if the Friday sequel, Last Friday, is happening, Chris Tucker will likely not be reprising his role as the fan favorite Smokey. It’s time we get that through our thick skulls and make peace with it because it’s only through being honest with ourselves that we can begin the healing process.
The actor all but killed our dreams during a recent chat with Global Grind’s Xilla about putting on that iconic navy blue shirt, khakis and chucks one more time to indulge our love for all things ’90s. Rather than telling us, “No, goddammit! I’m 45 f*cking years old! Get over this sh*t!,” Tucker gave a much classier response to whether he’s down for Last Friday.
“That was a moment in time,” the aging actor explained after revealing he recently watched the 21-year-old film. “I was a young kid. I was laughing through the whole thing. I was proud of that, making myself laugh. I don’t know if I could do another one because I was so young and it was a moment in time. But we’ll see.”
