Kevin Hart’s Hilarious New Show “Die Hart” Features Game of Thrones Star Nathalie Emmanuel • EBONY


We are all in
need of a woo-saw moment these days, and Kevin Hart has answered the call! In
his latest project “Die Hart”, Kevin executive produces and plays a fictionalized
version of himself who’s tired of being the comedic sidekick. He gets his wish
when a famous director offers him his dream – to be a leading man action star –
but there’s a catch: Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star
school, run by a lunatic John Travolta. Pushed to his limits by this action
school coach and a tough-minded rival student Nathalie Emmanuel, Kevin must
survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears
if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime.

Nathalie’s
character, Jordan King, is a tough, savvy, up-and-coming actress who’s sick of
her current role co-starring alongside a robot on a multi-cam sitcom. Her dream
– much like Kevin – is to become a lead in a big action movie. When she shows
up to Ron Wilcox’s Action Star School, she’s not there to make friends,
especially with Kevin. But throughout her time in the training program, Jordan
will break her own rule as she evolves from Kevin’s rival to his confidant and
friend.
