Kevin Hart says that his new role as "Danny" in Will Packer's About Last Night is his best work yet. The film -- which is a remake of the 1986 classic, stars Kevin and Regina Hall as "Danny" and "Debbie," a couple who meet at a bar and starts a relationship off of a one night stand.
According to Necolebitchie, during the New York screening of the film, the comedian said about the film, "We made a good movie. Me watching it tonight with a live audience, me seeing people react to it for the first time, I’m so proud of this project. This honestly, is my best work to date. Yes, ‘Ride Along’ did amazing numbers at the box office, but I’m very happy. This is my first grown man f*cking role! I’m excited about it!"
On his chemistry with Regina, he said, "I definitely tip my hat off to Regina because it was hard for her. Working with me, not wanting me, not trying to take this to a different level, we kept it professional, which I respect you for. [Jokes with Regina] You could have taken advantage of me and you didn’t. I’ve never clicked on camera faster with anybody in my life than I did Regina. Guy or female. Our comedic chemistry, our emotional chemistry, we didn’t have to search for it."
- He continued, "Bernie and Joan are 70 percent of the relationships out there. Those couples that are that crazy that they see no problem in what they do and they think everybody else is crazy. ‘We ain’t the problem, y’all the crazy one. Y’all lying and making everything seem like it’s perfect.‘ We are a dysfunctional item but I love the journey that Bernie and Joan takes everyone on. I love how real it is and people are going to relate to that!"
