The comedian had been in recovery since September 1st, following the accident, undergoing grueling physical therapy before eventually returning to his home in Los Angeles.

“He really cherishes the fact that he’s alive, and wants to make the most of it in every respect. The crash had a huge impact on him,” said a source close to Hart.

Kevin is currently hard at work on the marketing campaign for the “Jumanji” sequel, making the rounds with co-stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Danny DeVito and Danny Glover.

What do YOU think?

Should Kevin Hart be back to work so soon, or should he lay low and do a little more recovery?

Last week, Perry became the first African-American to own their own movie studio after the grand opening of the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

Perry spoke to CBS’s Gayle Kim recently and explained the importance of building and owning the studio, and why his films speak a specific “language” to a specific audience…

Tyler Perry tells Gayle King: "I'm ignored in Hollywood"

Tyler Perry made history this weekend with the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios. Perry is the first black American to own a major film studio outright. The Atlanta film complex spans 330 acres with12 sound stages - larger than the Burbank, California lots owned by Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Walt Disney Studios combined.

Regarding the space reserved for displaced LGBTQ youth, homeless women and victims of sex trafficking, Perry said this, “[It] is building a compound for trafficked women, girls, homeless women, LGBTQ youth who are put out or displaced. Having a compound that is a beautiful place right here somewhere on this 330 acres, where they’re trained in the business and they become self-sufficient, they live in nice apartments, there’s day care, there’s all of these wonderful things that allows them to reenter society and then pay it forward again. That’s what I hope to do soon.”

How great is that?!

Ice, who turned down any involvement in the upcoming reboot says he has a few reservations with the film and how it could work in today’s environment.

The concerns being that the role of drug dealer, Nino Brown, as played by Wesley Snipes couldn’t be recreated in a just due manner, since Snipe’s portrayal has become something of cult status.

Another concern is that the original film took place in the crack riddled 1980s, which remains to this day a very poignant and topical time in American history.

Ice-T referenced the remake of “Superfly”, which he said, “sucked”.

What do YOU think? Do we really need a “New Jack City” reboot?
