Third time’s a charm. First it was John Witherspoon. Then it was Tiny “Deebo” Lester. During his interview on the Ricky Smiley morning show, “Dayday” gives the world some in depth information on the upcoming “Friday” sequel.
“I talk to Ice Cube and he told me he’s getting the script together They’re waiting for New Line Cinema to come thru. It’s going DOWN in the spring. Ice Cube talked to Chris Tucker, and I think he’s coming back. Cause if we can get Chris Tucker to come back and do 5-6 minutes…”
Hit the jump the watch the interview. (more…)
Fans of the movie “Friday”, may have something to celebrate about as there seems to be upcoming cast reunion for the 4th installment of “Friday”.
TMZ recently caught up with Tiny Lister (Deebo) in L.A. last night and had him reveal a “Friday” update. TMZ reports:
Tucker flew him out on his private jet recently to discuss the possibility of getting the ORIGINAL “Friday” crew back together. Lister tells us … Tucker and Cube have a big pow-wow set for next week to discuss a 4th “Friday” film … adding, “This is gonna be the big one.”
As you may remember, Tucker shot into superstardom playing pot-obsessed Smokey in the original “Friday” back in 1995 — and then refused to appear in any of the sequels, citing religious reasons.
Hopefully he received some spiritual counseling in between those that two “Friday” films.

You can run from the law, you can run from gangsters, but as most Americans know – you can not run away from the IRS.
Unfortunately, actor Chris Tucker had to learn the hard way as he is now in jeopardy of losing his Florida mansion and possibly serving jail time.
Just this week, papers have been filed in Circuit Court in Lake County claiming that Tucker owes $4.4 million to the bank after buying the $6 million home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007, according to the Orlando Sentinal.
The home contains five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa, an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, and a basement resembling a pirate ship, complete with a sail and the actor was paying a monthly mortgage of $25,812.50.
Tucker is also believed to owe $11.5 million to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after failing to pay taxes in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.
I hope he has a rainy day stash to clear up this mesh. Of course MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
