No One Took Chris Rock Seriously For His Role On Empire, Twitter Reacts

Chris Rock’s appearance on the first episode of Empire’s season 2 came and went faster than a commercial break. As previously mentioned Chris’s role had him in lockdown with show lead Terrence Howard (Luscious Lyon) and DeRay Davis. For his character, Chris had to bring out his tougher side which Twitter had a hard time taking seriously. Several people online pointed out Rock’s attempt to play a bad guy, and couldn’t help to suggest he stay on the lighter side of things.

Over the years we’ve seen more comedians take on dramatic roles without problems. Jamie Foxx in 2004’s Ray, and Marlon Wayans in 2000’s Requiem For A Dream proved that comedians can play dramatic roles, so it seems that Everybody just Hates Chris.
