At this point there’s no denying the ascension of Kevin Hart as the premier comic working today.  The man is omnipresent – even before going to see a film he’s not in, there he is – in a pre-show commercial – endorsing some Vitamin Water product.  Just this year – he’s already had two unexpected hits: the buddy cop comedy Ride Along and the Mamet-Lowe/Moore redux About Last NightThink Like a Man Too further cements Hart’s rise to comedic dominance.  In the (first) Think Like a Man, Hart was a supporting character, peppering in brief appearances throughout, commenting on the various character’s travails; here – in the sequel – he is very much the focus, most of the conflict in the film stemming from his antics.  Typically in a comedy, there is one ‘straight man’ asked to react indignantly to all the eccentric characters surrounding him (think Bradley Cooper in The Hangover films). Think Like a Man Too may be the only movie to reverse this ratio, having four ‘straight men’ (Romany Malco, Terrence J, Jerry Ferrara & Michael Ealy) reacting indignantly to one character (Hart) – proof of just how strong a comedic persona Hart has crafted.

In the following interview with Kevin Hart, Jerry Ferrara, Terrence J & Gary Owen, the foursome discuss the group dynamics at the heart of Think Like a Man Too, their working relationship with filmmaker Tim Story and the improvisational feel of the movie. In addition, Kevin Hart gives an update on Ride Along 2 and Jerry Ferrara discusses the Entourage movie.  Hit the jump to watch.
