Chris Tucker On The Real Reason He Didn’t Want To Make A Friday Sequel With Ice Cube

Friday has kept its cult classic status for almost three decades. One of the main reasons for this is because of the supporting cast backing lead Ice Cube, most notably fan-favorite Chris Tucker. Unfortunately, Tucker’s drug-dealing Smokey hasn’t made another appearance since the first film. For years, rumors have been swirling about why the Rush Hour star never returned for any Friday sequels. After years of speculation, he’s revealed the real reason he stepped away from the comedy franchise.

Chris Tucker shot to film stardom by playing the hilarious sidekick to Ice Cube’s jobless Craig. The two actors displayed an incredible dynamic onscreen. But after the film’s success, Tucker chose not to reprise his breakout role. Rumors from onscreen friction to money issues were cited as reasons for the Silver Linings Playbook star not coming back. After years of hearsay, Tucker opened up to the Flix Talk podcast about what led to him passing on Next Friday, saying:

One of the reasons I didn’t do the second one was because of the weed. Because I thought ‘Man, that movie became a phenomenon. I don’t want everyone smoking weed!’ I never told people this because I kind of forgot about it. But it was one of the reasons why I didn’t do it. Because I said ‘I don’t want to represent everybody smoking weed.’
