The actor/producer/writer/director also reveals his dream roles, career choices, and more in this NYT interview.
Maybe it’s because his comedy albums were so formative to me or that I loved seeing him in movies like Top Five and Nurse Betty, but Chris Rock has always excited me as an actor. Now, as he enters middle age, it’s fun to see him making a huge comeback with titles like Fargo’s season four and Spiral, both out this year.
But is this really a comeback?
Rock has done comedy specials for Netflix and was in Dolemite is my Name and was in the Sandler comedy The Week Of, as well. But aside from those titles, he mostly did one-off TV episodes since 2014.
The time was spent working on his family and being with his kids. But now Chris Rock is back.
He sat down with The New York Times to talk about where his career has been and where it’s going.
