Kevin Hart swapped the iconic Hollywood boulevard for the cobbles of Coronation Street, after dropping in for a tour of the famous soap set.

The world-famous Hollywood comedian took a break from his tour of the UK, where he is promoting his new film, Ride Along, to visit the cobbled streets of Weatherfield.

Hart, well-known for various TV and film roles including Think Like a ManThis is the End, Grudge Match, stars alongside rapper Ice Cube in his new movie.

After visiting the Weatherfield cobbles and paying a visit to the Rovers Return, the 34-year-old stand-up took in the sights and sounds of the city before heading across to the Etihad Stadium and the home of Manchester City. 

In his new film the American entertainer plays a fast-talking security guard who, in a bid to prove to his worth to his future brother-in-law, joins him on patrol.

Things turn serious though when they uncover new evidence which may be the key to solving a case which has been rumbling on for over three years.

During filming Hart got to use a number of guns and it was an experience that the actor enjoyed.  

“It was fun,” he told The Independent.

“Any time you get to do what you have never done in life - I've never shot a gun in life - so you get to act out what you've always thought or what you expected or what you wanted to do.

“It was something that was great for the imagination, so I definitely had a lot of fun doing it.”
