If you missed it, actor/comedian/bankable movie star (The Wedding Ringer opened at No. 2 with $20.6 million) Kevin Hart was on Power 105's The Breakfast Club last week, and during the 50-minute interview, the topic of him playing a gay character came up. He talked about turning down the part of Alpa Chino in Tropic Thunder (Brandon T. Jackson ended up playing the character). "In my defense," Hart explained, the role was written to be gayer than it played out in the movie. "It was real flagrant," he added.
