Deadline is reporting that actor/comedian Chris Rock is joining the upcoming film What To Expect When You’re Expecting. He’ll play a man named Vic, “the head of a group of expectant fathers who lectures them on what it’s really like to have a baby and become a father.” Rock joins a cast that includes Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Brooklyn Decker and Anna Kendrick.
The film will tell the story of four different pregnant couples whose stories start off separately but all end up intertwining by the end. The narrative structure is said to be similar to Crash but somehow I don’t see this one turning out as good. Am I right on that one?
As for Chris Rock, it’s always great to see him on the big screen. He was the best part about Grown Ups and no matter how many shitty films he chooses to star in, somehow he always manages to entertain me. Maybe it’s because I’m a big fan of his stand up comedy. There’s something about him though that’s just inherently funny.
Any other Chris Rock fans out there?
