Hart was hospitalized after sustaining major back injuries following a car accident in Malibu Hills, Calif. He was a passenger in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the driver lost control of the vehicle and veered into an embankment. The driver also suffered major injuries while a third passenger was not hurt. Hart is set to appear in Jumanji: The Next Level later this year, as well as the 2020 drama film, Fatherhood.
Johnson, Hart’s friend and frequent collaborator, shared a photo on Instagram of the two together in the upcoming Jumanji sequel. “Stop messing with my emotions brother,” Johnson wrote in the caption. “We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.” Hart and Johnson have appeared together in 2016’s Central Intelligence, 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and this summer’s Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw. They also co-hosted the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.
Crews tweeted a news story about Hart’s accident Sunday afternoon with the message, “Get well soon, brother.” He and Hart have appeared together in the 2004 comedy film Soul Plane, as well as the BET series Real Husbands of Hollywood.
Cranston posted a photo with Hart on Instagram, sharing a sweet message for his The Upside costar. “Let’s all send him positive energy and healing thoughts. He’s a good human. Get well soon, brother. B,” Cranston wrote.
