Tucker -- who hasn't appeared onscreen since 'Rush Hour 3' in 2007, and has only made 'Rush Hour' films since 1998 -- would play Cooper's best friend in 'Playbook,' an institutionalized free spirit who frequently escapes to visit his recently released pal. In 'Watch,' Tucker would tackle the role of a recent divorcee hoping the local neighborhood watch -- which counts Stiller, Vaughn and Hill as members and uncovers a plot to destroy the world -- will get him out of the house.
This isn't the first time Tucker has been rumored for a high-profile film in 2011. The star was also on the shortlist of names for the lead in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' a part that eventually went to Jamie Foxx.
