Ice Cube Says Nice Things Angrily on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ [VIDEO]
Rapper-actor Ice Cube has made a career out of playing angry cops — just watch ‘Ride Along’ with Kevin Hart. In his new flick, ’22 Jump Street,’ he plays a hot-headed police captain named Dickson who sends Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) undercover to arrest some bad guys at a college.
On Thursday’s episode (June 12) of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!,’ Cube was asked to recite some pretty nice lines in a very heated way.
“You are very good at seeming angry,” Kimmel noted. “I don’t know if you are angry in general.”
It’s the eyebrows, Kimmel.
Cube, who’s best known for his comedic roles in ‘Friday’ and ‘Barbershop,’ was up for the challenge.
His first task was to repeat, “Lavender body wash makes my pores tingle,” and he nailed it with a scowl that will make you shake in your pants.
At times, he struggled with reading the pleasantries on the cue cards, which made him even angrier.
“You know I went to the L.A. Unified School District, so I can’t read that good,” he explained to Kimmel.
The last one was hilarious.
“OMG! Did you do something with your hair? Love it!” he said in an angry tone.
So there you have it! Ice Cube is the angriest, nicest guy on the planet.
You can watch Ice Cube get angry in ’22 Jump Street,’ now playing in theaters.
