"The way I look at it is, it's my movie, but it's your part," said Rock, referring to comic heavyweights Cedric the Entertainer, Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan and JB Smoove.They provide the edgy, satirical film, which opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, with much of its controlled comic chaos. In "Top Five," Rock plays troubled comic Andre Allen, who yearns to be taken seriously.Shot in New York City, "Top Five" takes place in the course of a single day.While some might say he is playing a variation on himself, Rock, 49, said the character is drawn from legendary black comics ranging from Eddie Murphy and Chris Tucker to Martin Lawrence and Jamie Foxx.
