Chris Rock joins 'Real Husbands of Hollywood,' report says
Not entirely certain what to make of this but am reasonably certain it's biggish ... Chris Rock is joining BET's "Real Husbands of Hollywood."
"RHOH?" Kevin Hart's and BET's amusing send-up of the most send-uppable franchise on television -- with the exception of Anything Kardashian. It just ended the first season mid-March; a second season was ordered and no date on arrival, but figure a lot sooner than next January (the first bowed this past January). It stars Nick Cannon, J.B.Smoove (of "Curb"), Boris Kodjoe and Duane Martin -- all as themselves (it does have a bit of a "Curb" vibe, too).
The website Hiphollywood reported this Monday and has a clip of Rock confirming his role. Rock doesn't do a lot of TV --make that Rock does no TV, other than in a production capacity (he's showrunner of W. Kamau Bell's new talk show for FX, which will go nightly next season).
