Even though hes not nearly as famous as his big brother Chris, Tony Rock
has carved out a pretty good career. His CW sitcom, All of Us, just completed its fourth season, and he recently wrapped filming on Homie Spumoni, a movie about a black kid raised by Italian-Americans. Yet, Rock longs for the gig once held by both his brother and his idol. Saturday Night Live has been my dream job since I was a kid, he says. I wanted to be Eddie Murphy. Despite their similar approach to material, Tonys stand-up act is more political than Chris. How are you going to kick Mexicans, the hardest working people on the planet, out of the country? he quips. Sneak into the country Sunday night, working Monday morning.
