Chris Rock, it turns out, loves Nicole Kidman as much as the rest of us do. During a conversation with the Oscar-winning star of “The Hours,” Rock reeled off a few favorite Kidman performances — from “To Die For” (“One of my favorite movies ever,” he said) to “Destroyer” (which he called a “drugged-up cop” movie) — before confessing that he’d watched basically everything she’s ever done. And he’s already lining up to buy tickets for “Being the Ricardos,” the Aaron Sorkin film in which Kidman plays Lucille Ball opposite Javier Bardem’s Desi Arnaz.
Even in the middle of filming as Lucy, Kidman held up her end of the bargain. She’s been bingeing the fourth season of Noah Hawley’s FX on Hulu anthology series “Fargo,” in which Rock plays 1950s crime boss Loy Cannon. It’s a meaty turn for the comedy star that could earn him a spot in the Emmys race. He might see Kidman there: Last winter, she followed up her Emmy-winning role in “Big Little Lies” by returning to HBO in “The Undoing,” playing Grace Fraser, a wealthy New Yorker whose life is rocked by her husband’s arrest for a grisly murder.
