Kevin Hart is ready — and I mean bursting at the seams — to be a sex symbol, and he may get his wish in the remake of About Last Night.
The ever-energetic comic gushed to EW recently while filming on the downtown Los Angeles set of his movie, which modernizes the 1986 original starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, based on the David Mamet play. Hart plays Bernie, a sidekick role inhabited by James Belushi in the original, who is friends with lead heartthrob Michael Ealy. Joy Bryant also stars, and Regina Hall plays Hart’s hot-cold love interest. The movie’s now in post-production.
“Being a comedian, I’m very clean cut in the roles that I’ve had thus far. This was actually a role that gave me an opportunity to be a little different,” Hart told EW. “I’m filthy, filthy to the point where my language is unacceptable, my opinion is very, I guess you could say, I’m outspoken, but about the wrong topics, … and I have sex in this movie, which is great! I’ve never had sex in a film. And the fact that I’m having sex is going to make me a sex symbol. I see it all. This is a big thing for me. … Ladies, you get to see my side profile!”
