Chris Rock

New Jack City was a complete 180 for Chris Rock. The crime drama, which hit theaters one year into Rock's stint on Saturday Night Live, tackled the blight of crack cocaine in America's inner cities, with Rock playing one of its victims. The role remains one of his few dramatic parts, but Rock has explored new facets of his career in recent years, stepping behind the camera for his dramedy I Think I Love My Wife and tackling the politics of appearance in the black community with the documentary Good Hair.
