Kevin Hart picked quite the weekend to be in Miami.
The actor-comedian premiered his documentary, Let Me Explain, as part of the 2013 American Black Film Festival, at the Gusman Theatre Saturday night. Filmed during last years Let Me Explain comedy tour, the movie opens July 3.
Hart, a Miami Heat fan, had to miss the NFL champs parade Monday because he was due in Las Vegas to shoot the sequel to last years ensemble hit, Think Like A Man. His costar, Gabrielle Union, was already in Sin City working, but her boyfriend, Dwyane Wade, came out to support his longtime buddy.
He texted me to get the bleep over here so I got outta the bed, said Wade, adding seriously: Hes one of the most talented young people we have in the [entertainment] world.
The native Philadelphian wouldnt agree; Harts too humble. Asked how it feels to have more than 7.5 million followers on Twitter, he said: Im appreciative of it. Im in love with my profession. My fans support me. I wake up every day and thank God for doing what I love to do. I dont have feelings of, Oh I wish I had this or that.
He also bristles at the term, The New King of Comedy.
Im a student of the game. Im able to do what I do because so many before me have paved the way. Im just someone coming up on the totem pole.
Hart will allow that he is proud of his work in Let Me Explain, a followup to his last concert tour movie, 2011s Laugh at My Pain.
I funded it, I produced it and I think fans will respect me as a businessman and see where Im going in my career and what Im trying to do. My heart and passion are there. Im an open book. I let it all out there. There are no secrets.
Its about to get really busy for Hart, who is gearing up for a second season of Real Husbands of Hollywood on BET, as well as three additional movies: boxing comedy Grudge Match with Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro; Ride Along with Ice Cube; and a remake of About Last Night.
How does the 32-year-old juggle it all?
Your guess is better than mine, he said. I take it all in stride and do it to the best of my ability. Its a good thing.
As for his plans in Miami, Hart later partied with D-Wade at Dream Nightclub, and was pining for some meat at either Prime 112 or Red the Steakhouse.
The standup pro was going to try to get in some R&R on the beach, too.
I like the sun, he said, but I prefer to sit in the shade and observe whats happening on the beach.
