Born Christopher Julius Rock in Andrews, South Carolina, on February 7, 1965, Chris Rock was raised in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of New York. He was still in his teens when he began doing stand-up comedy, eventually forging a friendship with Eddie Murphy, who took Rock under his wing and cast him in a small role in 1987's "Beverly Hills Cop II." Rock's big break came in 1990, when he joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" roles in movies such as "New Jack City" "Bboomerang" "Sgt. Bilko" and "Lethal Weapon 4." followed, but it was the success of his HBO stand-up specials and "The Chris Rock Show" that earned him awards claim and make him one of the hottest names in comedy. The movies "Down to Earth" and "Head of State" established Rock's writing, directing and producing credentials in addition to his leading-man status. Rock produced the 2005 tv series "Everybody Hates Chris" which was loosely based on his school days. He voiced characters in such animated fare as "Osmosis Jones" "Bee Movie" and the hugely popular "Madagascar" series. His movie credits include 2010's "Grown Ups" and it's 2013 sequel, and "Death At A Funeral." he has hosted the Academy Awards twice, acted on the Broadway stage and appeared in a number of music videos. 2020 saw Rock voice a lead character in the movie "The Witches" and star as gangster Loy Cannon on season 4 of TV's "Fargo." Next up for the divorced father of two is the lead, opposite Samuel L. Jackson, in this month's "Spiral," the latest in the "Saw" movie series.
