The ‘Get Hard’ movie surprises a coronavirus frontliner with a role in his new movie and reveals the doctor will also get a full star treatment on the set.
Kevin Hart surprised a doctor battling the coronavirus on the frontline with the prize of a lifetime – a role in his next movie.
Kevin offered the reward as part of the All In Challenge – for which a host of stars have offered up incredible prizes to those who donate $10 or more to help those going hungry during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Anaesthesiologist Henry Law from New Jersey won the role in the draw and Kevin jumped on a video call to offer him the speaking part in his next film in person.
The comedian, who shared a video of the encounter on Instagram, told the bewildered doctor that in addition to the speaking part he would get full star treatment, including a stay in a five star hotel and his own trailer and assistant on set.
The “Get Hard” star added, “Look, this makes us friends, man. I’m glad that you won, I couldn’t have asked for a better winner. You look like the part that you are about to get.”
Henry said he was “so excited” to work on the film and meet Hart and explained how before entering he had found it “heartbreaking” seeing patients battle the virus in hospital and millions of Americans lose their jobs due to the economic damage caused by the pandemic.
