Kevin Hart Gets His Reps With ‘Madden NFL 15’ Ad

During the About Last Night press junket, actor Kevin Hart talked about the importance of getting “reps” as an actor and performer. This sports reference surely applies to his work in the popular Madden NFL 15 commercial, which has him going toe to toe with actor Dave Franco. 

Although Hart starts off as the aggressor as he accosts Franco at his residence and keys his car, it’s Franco who scores the first touchdown during their Madden match. Even though Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard runs off with Franco’s girlfriend, he’s determined to beat Hart.

I have no clue who is a better Madden player, but the commercial proves the pair have undeniable chemistry. Let’s Be Cops is already out in theaters, but a buddy film pairing Hart and Franco could be a cinematic touchdown.

Below is a gallery of screenshots from the video, the actual commercial, and an audio clip from my interview with Hart.
