Chris Rock sure knows how to get onto a Charm City crowd's good side.
In town briefly to publicize Friday's opening of his latest comedy, "Top Five," Rock alighted at the Rotunda Cinemas Tuesday afternoon to say something nasty (and unprintable here) about the Pittsburgh Steelers, refer to Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger as "the original Cosby" ("that's horrible, that's gonna go everywhere," he predicted of his quip) and quickly introduce the film. Then he was gone.
Earlier, Rock had stopped at Hampden's Cafe Hon to sign some autographs for fans. Cafe Hon tweeted out "Chris Rock is in the house," accompanied by a photo of Rock settled in with a sandwich.
Rock started his day in Boston, then moved on to Philadelphia before heading to Baltimore. From here, it was on to D.C.
Shortly after leaving the Rotunda, Rock posted on Twitter (@chrisrock), "Baltimore enjoy TopFive you guys were great. Thanks for the love. Next stop DC!" He also retweeted a brief video of him walking in to Cafe Hon.
Rock wrote and directed "Top Five," in which he stars as an actor reluctantly dragged into turning his wedding into a reality show. Gabrielle Union and Rosario Dawson co-star.
