NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Local troops got a surprise visit from two popular movie stars, Monday.
Rapper-actor Ice Cube and Comedian-Actor Kevin Hart came to town to screen their new movie, “Ride Along 2.”
The exclusive event for service members was held at The Gator Theater at JEB Little Creek.
A contest was held on social media and Norfolk was one of the top cities chosen.
“I know for myself and I can speak for him [Ice Cube], I want to say a major thank you for doing what you do to protect myself and my family,” said Hart.
Hart and Ice Cube also visited the bowling alley on base for a meet and greet with troops and their families.
“Came out to have a good time. I like Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, and I’m a fan of their movies,” said a service member. “I think they’re doing a good thing to come out and support the troops like this.”
Ride Along 2 opens in theaters on January 15.
