Chris Rock, Lynn Whitfield, and Dylan Baker in Das Weiße Haus sieht schwarz (2003)

In 1993, Paramount offered him the role of Lamont Sanford in a purposed film update of Sanford and Son (1972). He called the idea "insane" and, because of his affection for the late Redd Foxx, lobbied to have the production halted. It was.

Has the rare distinction of being in two movies that opened on the same day in the United States: The Longest Yard (2005) and Madagascar (2005) (May 27, 2005). Both of them stayed at the two top spots at the box office the following weeks, knocking down the last installment of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005). Both became members of the $100 million club.

Chris Rock in The 77th Annual Academy Awards (2005)

During his monologue at The 77th Annual Academy Awards (2005), he quipped, "If you want Russell Crowe, and all you can get is Colin Farrell, wait!" Coincidentally, Oliver Stone pursued Crowe for the title role of Alexander (2004), yet ended up casting Farrell in the role instead. The film turned out to be one of the most critically panned movies that year.
