“Top Five” celebrated its New York City premiere Wednesday night at the Ziegfeld Theater where Writer/Director/Actor Chris Rock and the film’s stars Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union, Cedric The Entertainer, JB Smoove, Ben Vereen, and Karli Redd all walked the red carpet. Co-Producer Kanye West and Executive Music Producer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson were also in attendance along with Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Bruce, 2 Chainz and Jadakiss.
“Top Five” stars Rock as Andre (the most famous comedian on the planet), who agrees to be interviewed for the New York reporter Chelsea Brown (Dawson), a gorgeous but no-frills young woman with a sharp intelligence that matches his own. This new, no-holds-barred interaction may well change the course of both their lives. The film also stars Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, Sherri Shepherd, Whoopi Goldberg, Anders Holm, Romany Malco, Leslie Jones, Michael Che, and Jay Pharoah.
“Top Five” is a Paramount Pictures and IAC Film and is in theaters nationwide on 12/12/14.
