Jackie Chan jokes that he might kill off Chris Tucker's character to do 'Rush Hour 4'

Jackie Chan took time out of his interviews on separate TV shows to threaten to kill off Chris Tucker’s character in Rush Hour 4. Chan told the hosts of Today that he told Tucker to hurry up and agree to the film “before you get old.” He added that if Tucker doesn’t move forward soon, he’ll start the movie with a funeral for Chris Tucker’s character and have his character’s son take over.

The third installment of the Rush Hour franchise came out in 2007, and fans have been wondering about a new addition to the series.

Chan echoed the joking threat on Live With Kelly and Ryan, saying that he’s already approved the scripts, and adding, “I have been waiting for Chris Tucker. He seems retired.” Chan also gave a direct plea to Tucker, saying to the camera, “Hurry up.”

Watch: Jackie Chan doesn’t understand why Rush Hour is so popular:

    Ireland’s two most senior politicians have 'same view' on Brexit border question

    Ireland’s two most senior politicians have the “same view” on how to progress with the Brexit border question. Leo Varadkar said he and deputy premier Simon Coveney both agreed "substantive progress" on resolving the crucial outstanding issue was required prior to June's European Council summit in Brussels. The Taoiseach denied claims the politicians were sending out mixed messages after Mr Varadkar previously stated that he would rather have the "right deal" at October's EU summit, than "any deal" in June.

    Who will Meghan Markle have to curtsey to after marrying Prince Harry?

    By marrying into the Royal family, Meghan Markle is entering a whole new world of protocol, tradition and etiquette. One of the most well-known ways to greet a member of the Royal family is, of course, the curtsey. It’s not down to the order of succession, so it’s safe to say Markle has a lot of rules to learn.

    The Reader: Corbyn’s stance on Zionism shows that he still doesn’t get it

    WhilE Jeremy Corbyn’s words (“What I’m doing to banish anti-Semitism from the Labour Party”, April 24) are no doubt a vast improvement on that said previously, they still display an astonishing level of ignorance after all the events over recent weeks surrounding the issue. Mr Corbyn states “anti-Zionism is not in itself anti-Semitic”, showing his continued lack of understanding. Indeed, criticism of an Israeli government policy or action — be it Netanyahu’s or otherwise — is definitely not anti-Semitic, just as criticism is made of many democratically elected governments around the world on a daily basis.

    Avengers: Infinity War review – Enough exhilarating chaos to compensate for any confusion

    Reviewing Avengers: Infinity War, the Marvel cinematic universe’s most spectacular lurch into tightly controlled anarchic mayhem, presents a dilemma. Thanos being a genocidal demigod on the verge of acquiring pan-cosmic destructive power over all, the temptation to obey is strong. Iron Man, Black Panther, Thor, Hulk, Maybot, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America, Sweep from Sooty and Sweep, Vision, Spiderman, Heimdall, Drax the Destroyer, Tinky Winky, Nebula, Rocket Racoon, Rocket Ronnie O’Sullivan, Scarlet Witch, Groot, Toilet Duck, Star-Lord, Winter Soldier, Pepper Potts, Dr Strange, Dr Pepper… If I have imagined some of the above and missed out others who do appear, the deluge made it almost impossible to keep track.

    Eating Protein Supplements With Your Meal Linked to Weight Loss in New Study

    Now, a new study has the answer, suggesting that consuming these supplements with meals, rather than between them, may have the best results. A study published online in Nutrition Reviews looked at 34 randomized controlled trials, including 59 groups of volunteers who either consumed protein in the form of supplements with their meals or had protein supplements in between their meals. Results revealed that the group who consumed the protein with their meals lost more fat mass and those who consumed protein supplements between their meals increased overall body mass over time.
