'Die Hart': Meet Kevin Hart, John Travolta and the rest of the cast of Quibi's action-comedy series
The upcoming 10-part action-comedy series directed by Eric Appel, co-created by Tripper Clancy and Hart serving as one of the EPs has been one of July's highly-anticipated shows
'Die Hart' starring Kevin Hart as a fictional version of himself along with a bunch of big-name stars is the next big thing on Quibi. The upcoming 10-part action-comedy series directed by Eric Appel, co-created by Tripper Clancy and Hart serving as one of the EPs has been one of July's highly-anticipated shows. Ahead of the film's release, here's a quick look at the who's who in the series:
Kevin Hart as himself
Hart is a man known for his impeccable comic timing and has cemented himself as one of the actors specializing in the comedy genre. With hits like 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' (2017) and 'Night School' (2018) in his list of successes, Hart in the series plays himself where he's fed up with being looked at as comic relief. He finally gets picked by Jean Reno's Claude Van De Velde, a French director looking to cast him in an action film and for that he has to hone his acting skills at a training school run by Ron Wilcox (John Travolta).
John Travolta as Ron Wilcox
Bald, funny and deadly, Ron Wilcox runs the action school where he claims he trained some of the greatest heroes in Hollywood, and time in the school made them what they are today. He effortlessly rolls off names like Matt Damon and Tom Cruise as his star pupils. Travolta is a Hollywood legend known for cult classics — 'Saturday Night Fever' (1977), 'Grease' (1978) and 'Pulp Fiction' (1994). He's enjoyed a decorated career and the Academy Award nominee is all set to rock the screen again as Wilcox.
Nathalie Emmanuel as Jordan King
Emmanuel as Jordan King is introduced as the other student in the school where she trains alongside Hart. Emmanuel shot to fame for her role as Missandei in HBO's 'Game of Thrones' and subsequently starred in blockbusters like 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials' (2015) and the sequel 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)'. She also joined the 'Fast & Furious' franchise as hacker genius Ramsey in 'Furious 7' (2015), and 'The Fate of the Furious' (2017).
Josh Hartnett as himself
The series also sees Josh Hartnett play himself. In 1997, 'Cracker' got the audience buzzing when they saw Hartnett's Michael Fitzgerald being abducted by a serial killer and the actor. A fresh and baby-faced Hartnett delivered a strong performance and followed it up with his first feature film that was an insane slasher, 'Halloween H20: 20 Years Later,' in 1998. What followed were appearances in major blockbusters. Hartnett had starring roles in the war epic 'Pearl Harbor', 'O', 'Black Hawk Down', the romantic comedy '40 Days and 40 Nights', and the crime thriller 'Lucky Number Slevin'.
