Kevin Hart was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he launched his career as a comedian during an amateur night at a local comedy club. Over the years, Hart has become a box office heavyweight, starring in 11 films that debuted as the number one movie on opening weekend.
Hart recently wrapped production on his new film Fatherhood, a movie which he is starring in and producing through his company Hartbeat Productions. In Jumanji: The Next Level, Hart can be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Danny DeVito, Karen Gillian and Awkwafina in the sequel to Sony’s highly successful reboot of the beloved franchise. He reprised his role as the white-haired rabbit “Snowball” in Universal’s The Secret Life of Pets 2. Hart also starred in STX Entertainment’s The Upside alongside Bryan Cranston and Nicole Kidman. Next, Hart will headline Quibi’s Action Scene, the first production of its kind by Hart’s digital network, Laugh Out Loud, where he will play a fictionalized version of himself on a quest to land the action movie role of a lifetime.
