'Me Time' on Netflix: Craving for some solitude? Kevin is here to mend your 'Hart'
Netflix is back again with a new comedy movie, 'Me Time', featuring Kevin Hart. Right after releasing the hysterically funny 'The Man from Toronto', in which Hart starred with Woody Harrelson, the world will now be introduced to a new comic pairing — Hart with Mark Walhberg.
The Netflix film's original synopsis reads, "A stay-at-home dad finds himself with some "me time" for the first time in years while his wife and kids are away. He reconnects with his former best friend for a wild weekend that nearly upends his life." Read on to know more about Kevin Hart, who plays one of the leads.
How did Kevin Hart kick start his Hollywood career?
Kevin Hart is a 43 year old comedian and actor. He was originally known for his stand-up routines. This helped him bag comic roles in Hollywood films and on TV shows. After that, there was no looking back. He is perhaps best known for his role as Ben Barber in 'Ride Along' (2014) and more recently, the 'Jumanji' reboot.
What was Hart's first TV appearance?
Kevin Hart came to prominence when Judd Apatow cast him in a recurring role in 'Undeclared' (which Entertainment Weekly listed it at 16th position in the "25 Best Cult TV Shows from the Past 25 Years"). The 2001 sitcom had Hart playing the role of a religious student on campus who temporarily converts Steven (Jay Baruchel) to Christianity. Hart then started featuring in movies such as 'Paper Soldiers' (2002), 'Scary Movie 3' (2003), 'Soul Plane' (2004), 'In the Mix' (2005), 'Little Fockers' (2010).

What does Hart do apart from acting?
In addition to acting, Hart has also hosted various ceremonies. His first hosting gig was the 2011 'BET Awards'. Hart then hosted the 2012 'MTV Video Music Awards'. His longtime friend Judd Apatow, the director who gave him his first big on-screen break, was the one who recommended him for the gig. Hart also came close to hosting the Oscars in 2019, but he stepped down from the gig when a series of his old homophobic tweets resurfaced. He has hosted three episodes of 'Saturday Night Live'. In 2015, Hart hosted the 'Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber' which was a massive hit, which took netizens by quite a roll. In 2016, Hart co-hosted the 'MTV Movie Awards' with Dwayne Johnson.
A sneak peak into Kevin Hart's personal life

Hart posted an apology video on his Instagram, which Good Morning America covered, where he is seen saying,: “I’m at a place in my life where I feel like I have a target on my back,” Hart, 38, said. “And because of that I should make smart decisions. And recently, I didn’t. You know, I’m not perfect. I’m not going to sit up here and say that I am or claim to be in any way shape or form. And I made a bad error in judgement and I put myself in a bad environment where only bad things can happen and they did. And in doing that I know that I’m going to hurt the people closest to me, who’ve I talked to and apologized to, that would be my wife and my kids."
