Comedians looking to stretch themselves as actors are a common phenomenon, but it doesn’t always work out well. Chris Rock is one who has managed some success both in front of and behind the camera, and he’s tackling the subject directly in his new comedy drama, Top Five. The first trailer for the film has landed online.

Rock, who writes and directs, also plays Andre Allen, a man once described as among the funniest in America, who swapped stand up for wacky box office hits. Now, though, he’s looking to branch out, and isn’t feeling particularly funny.

With an impending wedding to a reality TV starlet (Gabrielle Union), his agent (Kevin Hart) breathing down his neck and a reporter (Rosario Dawson) writing a profile on him and probing his life, he’s trying to figure things out.

The main man has assembled a funny cast that also includes Romany Malco, Tracy Morgan, J.B. Smoove, Cedric The Entertainer, Jerry Seinfeld, Sherri Shepherd, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Vereen, Hayley Marie Norman and some newcomer named Adam Sandler.** Top Five** will hit UK cinemas on January 16.
