Archives For Kevin Hart

Nick Jonas spent 2017 releasing music, starring in films and traveling to spend downtime with friends.

It looks like 2018 might have all of the above in store for the artist again.

“Well, I already have a body of work that’s done,” Jonas told me in his Times Square green room before performing on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” “I think with ‘Chaos Walking,’ the film I finished up a little while ago, and then straight in to ‘Jumanji’ promo, we felt like, ‘Let’s give that music the attention it deserves and push it til next year.’

“So it’ll come out at some point this next year and I’m really excited to get it out there.”

Speaking of “Jumanji,” Jonas looked back on the movie’s promo run, which featured both Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, quite fondly.

“They’re like two brothers arguing all the time,” he explained. “So I was kind of the mediator in the press run that we did, but it was a great time. The payoff is that people love the film, and I’m thrilled.”

No final confirmation if “Remember I Told You” featuring Anne Marie and Mike Posner or “Find You” will make Jonas’ final track listing. The entertainer also released “Home” last year, which was for the animated movie “Madagascar” and earned Jonas a Golden Globe nomination. The album will almost certainly not be released in the year’s first two quarters, as according to IMDB “Chaos Walking” is slated to hit theaters on March 1.

It was an eventful weekend.

My friends at Mohegan Sun asked me to travel up to beautiful Uncasville, Connecticut and host red carpet coverage for the casino’s 20th anniversary celebrations. The festivities for the big 2-0 last throughout the month of October, however last weekend there were two very special events. Kevin Hart hosted a comedy all-stars event at Mohegan Sun Arena, and the after-party took place at Avalon Nightclub, where my first red carpet was located. The second was the “Red Carpet After-Party” inside Uncas Ballroom.

There was no shortage of stars: Hart had Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho and Dave Attell with him on stage. Jessie James Decker performed in the Cabaret Theater Friday night. Then on Saturday Fergie headlined the arena and LL Cool J performed a free show in the Wolf Den.

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers, some of The Real Housewives and former “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino all came by for “Reality Check” events (the latter in which I also hosted). Some of Buddy’s siblings from “Cake Boss” were on-hand to present a 20th Birthday cake from Carlo’s Bake Shop, which has an outpost inside The Shops at Mohegan Sun.

There were even a few surprises: namely David Ortiz showing up on Friday night and partying with his former teammate Johnny Damon. The following evening, I actually introduced Damon to LL Cool J on the red carpet.

You really can’t make this stuff up. Why would I? Watch the highlights from Friday and Saturday below or check out the full broadcasts here and here.
