Co-starring in the February 2013 blockbuster "Identity Thief", opposite Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy; and this month in "The Call" as Halle Berry's love interest, Chestnut’s star appears to be shining even brighter as of late. 2013 will undoubtedly prove to be one of Chestnut’s most notable years, with a summer blockbuster hit on the way, "Kick Ass 2", an appearance on the fifth season of Showtime’s "Nurse Jackie", and the long awaited sequel to "The Best Man" making its way to theatres in November. Although he is one of the most celebrated actors in Hollywood, and it’s no secret he is considered to be one of the most handsome men on the planet, Chestnut insists family is his first priority. The married father of two has perfected balancing his public persona against his starring roles as husband, father, brother and even friend.
Between promotional runs for "The Call", Chestnut sits down with rolling out correspondent Ronda Racha Penrice to discuss family, his upcoming movies, wearing the production hat on a new project and the long awaited "Best Man" sequel.
