The lovely Julie Delpy ("Before Sunrise," "Before Sunset") and the always hilarious Chris Rock turned up for the premiere Wednesday of their new film, "2 Days In New York," co-written and directed by Delpy herself.
The two play a quirky couple, Mingus and Marion, coping with the visit of Marion's French family, in town to meet Mingus.
Think a kind of "Meet the Parents" with a French twist.
The film was well-received at Sundance, and afterwards HuffPost caught up with the actors during the Tribeca Film Festival in April, where Rock talked about his excitement to star in the film:
I mean, I wanted to do the movie because it's a real character. Finally somebody is giving me a script that's not written in stand-up timing -- all that stuff. I knew the character. I knew him well. I mean, it's kind of a cross between Nelson George and Elvis Mitchell. And I've been on Elvis' radio show a few times. So, I knew it. I knew this character well.
"Girls'" Zosia Mamet and Alex Karpovsky attended the screening hosted by The Cinema Society, as well as Tyra Banks, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Aaron Carter.
