He lives like a lottery winner, and dedicates a lot of time to charity work. His two favorite causes:

1. AIDS in Africa

2. People who don't use the "Search" function on message boards.

He went to Africa with Bono. Does a lot of charity work. Rush Hour 3 has been postponed and won't see the light of day until at least 2006.

Since he made quite a bit of money off Rush Hour 2, he's well off for a while.

He's told many that once he finishes Rush Hour 3 and Money Talks 2 that he's done with acting. That is if both ever get made.

He went to Africa with Bill Clinton too, unless that was the same trip Bono was on.

It wasnt taken , they were competing projects and Rock's was rushed and released first so once it flopped I guess that put the nail in the coffin of Tucker's film.

We all deserve the long rumored concert film from Chris Tucker. This guy was a brilliant comedian.

Too bad we'll have to see his talent compromised in crap like another Rush Hour and Money Talks Again.

He's just waiting for the biggest role of his life and that's to play the new Green Lantern when it comes out in the movies.

He's not dour enough to play John Stewart if that is what you mean. I assume you are joking, though.

I heard he was making a Rush Hour 3 VS Money Talks 2 movie.

In it the Chris Tucker character from Rush Hour 3 sends a Tuckinator back to the set of the Fifth Element in an attempt to prevent his career. The Chris Tucker from Money Talks 2 sends himself back nude to stop the Tuckinator. Linda Hamilton will also star in a comeback roll.

It is rumored to be directed by Uwe Boll.

I heard when they approached him for Rush Hour 2, he asked for the same amount Jackie Chan was getting, around $20 million, and they gave it to him. I didn't know he was doing charity work, but I remember him going to Iraq or Afghanistan about a year ago as part of a USO tour.

Actually they are shooting for a G rating to Really widen the appeal.

The Tuckinator Puns them to death so no blood or violence is needed.

Crush on 'Rush'

Chris Tucker is expected to sign a two-picture, $40 million contract at New Line.
Tucker and gang return for another run.

The next "Rush Hour" is finally in the fast lane. Chris Tucker, who has made only "Rush Hour" films since 1998, is expected to sign a two-picture, $40 million contract at New Line, which has been trying extremely hard to get the third installment of the buddy pic off the ground.

$20 million dollars a film for someone who has never had success, let alone the opportunity, to carry a film by himself is pretty nuts. But hey, if it gets another fun Rush Hour movie, no biggie
