Today, Kevin Hart is most recognized for his major roles in action-packed comedies like the Ride Along series, which he co-starred in with Ice Cube, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which he co-starred in with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jack Black.
His performance in the film Fatherhood, in which he played the role of a widower who is grieving the loss of his wife, was markedly different in tone from the rest of his work since he took on a more serious part. It would appear that Kevin Hart has returned to the type of action comedies that he excels at with the upcoming release of 2022’s The Man From Toronto opposite Woody Harrelson.

Mark Wahlberg, who plays Hart’s erstwhile best friend, comes into play at this point, which is fortunate for Hart. He is known as a hard-core party boy who also has a tendency for recklessness. Wahlberg The characters played by Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Hart go on an outrageous journey of debauchery together, during which Hart rediscovers how to let free and enjoy himself.
