Tucker is best known for playing the role of Detective James Carter in the Rush Hour film series. In the 1990's, Tucker was a frequent stand-up performer on Def Comedy Jam. He came to prominence in the 1995 cult classic Friday, alongside Ice Cube, and then appeared in Luc Besson's The Fifth Element before beginning work on the highly commercially successful Rush Hour films. In 2006, he negotiated an unprecedented $25 million salary to appear in Rush Hour 3, which at the time made him the highest paid actor in Hollywood. Tucker is also a humanitarian and spends much of his spare time traveling and working with his foundation. Recently, he appeared in the film Silver Linings Playbook with Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper.
