And the beat goes on for Kevin Hart, who's maybe one of the busiest actors/comedians working right now.

One word comes to my mind when I think of George, the character that Charles S. Dutton plays in Martin Papazian’s, Least Among Saints: I think of the word "humble." I also think of the word "compassion."

Warning – SPOILERS ARE ABOUND!
