Why Kevin Hart Won't Play a Gay Character

Don’t expect Kevin Hart to play a gay character anytime soon.

In an interview with the hosts of The Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105.1, the Wedding Ringer funnyman talked about the role that got away – Alpa Chino in 2008’s Tropic Thunder. Hart explained that he passed on the role because the character was gay. (The part went to Brandon T. Jackson.)

Ben Stiller: Tom Cruise 'Has Moves' in Tropic Thunder

It’s been 25 years since he shimmied in his skivvies in Risky Business, but Tom Cruise can still shake it like a pro, according to his Tropic Thunder director Ben Stiller.

“The guy has moves,” says Stiller, who also co-wrote and stars in the military-themed action-comedy.

Cruise, 46, is winning raves for his role as a vulgar, venom-spewing studio executive in the movie, in which he’s nearly unrecognizable beneath a fat suit, a bald cap and a beard.
