Rap star Ice Cube is strapping on his pads and lacing up his boots to play a real-life American football star in a new family-friendly comedy. The FRIDAY star will play a tough National Football League (NFL) player, who realises his kids have become spoiled brats, in TOUGH LOVE. The film is inspired by former New England Patriots defensive back TEBUCKY JONES, who forced his kids to spend a summer in the mean streets of Oakland, California, where he grew up.
