Chris Rock Then

Chris Rock was first noticed for his stand-up comedy when Eddie Murphy saw his act at a nightclub. Murphy mentored Rock and helped him land his first movie, “Beverly Hills Cop II.” In 1990, Rock was selected as a cast member for the hit TV comedy show, “Saturday Night Live,” and that led to many more movie roles and international recognition. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
