Chris Tucker drew a lot of laughs on his last Tom Joyner appearance when he said the IRS sent him back to work. His tax troubles may have been the motivating factor, but fans are just glad that Tucker has reappeared after a self-imposed hiatus. He’s in the critically acclaimed new movie “Silver Linings Playbook” with Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. Cooper plays a teacher who tries to get his life back together after a stint in a mental institution. Opening on November 21, it’s Tucker’s first movie in five years. Tucker says he’s working to make a fourth “Rush Hour” film happen with Jackie Chan, but for folks waiting for him to reprise his role as Smokey in the “Friday” films that doesn’t seem to be on his immediate agenda.

“I don’t know,” Tucker said in his last appearance on “The Tom Joyner Morning Show,” in August. “Me and Cube, we’re talking about it, they’re working on a script. If it comes back….but I don’t think it would be as special as the first one.”
