Chris Tucker remains in that limbo of people who have once been very, very famous and then for reasons unknown to them or the public fall out of the public eye. It’s nothing specific that Tucker did or didn’t do. He didn’t beat up a girlfriend or go to jail or appear on reality TV. But maybe that’s the problem. Tucker, who was both comedian and cult figure after his role as Smokey in the first “Friday” movie and after his three “Rush Hour” movies with Jackie Chan, was looking to do more quality work. But somehow, after the huge successes of those roles, more challenging roles never came. So he took the time out to raise his teenage son and waited for another opportunity.  He hopped inside the ‘Red Velvet Cake’ studio to chill with the Fly Jock Tom Joyner and crew this morning talk about why he came back, the IRS problems he has had over the years, possibly another upcoming movie with action actor Jackie Chan and also he gives his thoughts on the Jackson family and his relationship with one of his best buddies, the late Michael Jackson.  He’s currently on tour and if you’re going out of town, check him out in Dallas tonight at 8pm at the Verizon Theater at Grand Prairie.  Never a dull moment with Chris, we’re glad he is back on stage, check out the audio!
