Will Smith makes plans to team up with Kevin Hart onscreen
The birthday boy's Central Intelligence co-star Dwayne Johnson and director Rawson Thurber sent him an insult-filled video message online.
Will Smith and Kevin Hart have made a pact to co-star in a new movie together within the next year.
The Independence Day superstar took to Instagram on Friday (06Jul18) to share a birthday message for the comedian as he turned 39, and accompanied the post with video footage of Will crashing Kevin's red carpet interview with a reporter for news show Access Hollywood at CinemaCon in 2016.
"Happy Bday, Kev!" Will wrote in the caption. "@lizhernandez needs to interview us for a REAL MOVIE! What's Up, Sun?!? Before your next bday, Let's make a movie! @kevinhart4real (sic)".
The Ride Along funnyman has since responded to the idea, and he's all for a Will Smith collaboration.
"Done and done!!!!!," he replied in the comments section. "Let's gooooooooooo (sic)".
Will wasn't the only celebrity pal to wish Kevin a happy birthday - Dwayne Johnson and their Central Intelligence director, Rawson Thurber, teamed up to send a hilarious video message to Hart, who they jokingly insulted throughout the post.
"Kevin, I've never liked you, and Dwayne carried you in your last two movies, literally..." Rawson began the Instagram clip, referencing the two actors' 2016 action comedy and their most recent onscreen team up in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
The friendly teasing continued in the footage, while in the caption, Dwayne added, "Happy Birthday @kevinhart4real from the only two real friends you have. @rawsonthurber, the man who directed the best performance of your career in CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE and the big, brown, bald tattooed man who you will always refer to simply as DADDY.
"We love ya brotha (sic). Happy Birthday. Go f**k yourself."
"I f**king love u (sic) guys!!!!" Kevin responded, before quipping, "A**hole", as Rawson made it clear their traded insults were all in jest.
"@kevinhart4real Miss ya buddy! Nothing but love," he wrote. "Have a great one!"
Hart celebrated his birthday with a big club bash at Drai's Nightclub in Las Vegas on Friday, when he was joined by his wife Eniko and surprise guests like rapper Nelly, while singer Trey Songz performed for the crowd.
