He's leaving the 'Rush Hour' in the Valley behind
By Ruth Ryon, LOS ANGELES Times Staff Writer

Chris Tucker, who co-stars with Jackie Chan in the popular "Rush Hour" movies, has put his home in a gated San Fernando Valley community on the market at just under $2.2 million.

Tucker has lived in the home since 1996 and is thinking of building a home in another gated development.

The home Tucker is selling has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms in slightly more than 6,300 square feet. The house also has a loft office, a family room with a wet bar, a master suite with verandas, a steam shower and two walk-in closets; a kitchen with a walk-in pantry; three fireplaces, a gated courtyard; and garages for three cars with direct access into the house.

The home, which also has city and golf course views, sits on nearly an acre with a pool and a spa. Tucker is the original owner of the house, which was built in 1995.

The actor-comedian, 30, co-starred with Chan in two "Rush Hour" comedy-action films and is due to start work in January 2004 on a third. In June, Tucker earned an award at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards for best fight, recognizing his battle in "Rush Hour 2" (2001).

Tucker also has been acknowledged for his travels to Africa this year to witness efforts to fight AIDS and to encourage economic development.

Michele Blackmon of Michele Blackmon Estates in Venice has the listing.
