John Travolta’s latest role in Kevin Hart’s movie, Die Hart, slated for release on streaming platform Quibi, July 20th is probably the last thing on the famed actor’s mind. He lost his wife, actress Kelly Preston, to breast cancer just days ago.
However, Mr. Travolta is a consummate professional, both as a leading man and a character actor. We are sure he lent much to Kevin Hart’s movie. Mr. Hart plays a fictionalized version of himself, based on his Hollywood career as a sidekick comedic actor. His desire to become a leading man/action star brings him to an action movie training academy, where he gets more than he bargained for. That is where John Travolta comes in.
Mr. Travolta plays Kevin Hart’s instructor at the school, which is run like a military training camp. Actress Nathalie Emmanuel, of Game of Thrones fame, is cast as a fellow action school student.
We met John Travolta – you can see us with him below – in 2012 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York at a Barbra Streisand concert. You can read that report by clicking here.

We wish continued peace and healing to Mr. Travolta on the loss of his beloved wife, Kelly Preston. RIP Ms. Preston, you will be missed.
