In 2009 Rock ventured into the documentary world as a writer and producer of "Good Hair," and in 2014 he executive produced "Eat Drink Laugh: The Story of the Comic Strip," a documentary recounting the history of one of New York's most famous comedy venues. His feature acting credits include the "Grown Ups" and "Madagascar" franchises, "Head of State," "Nurse Betty," "CB4", "Death at a Funeral," "I Think I Love My Wife," "2 Days in New York," "Dogma" and "New Jack City."
