Janelle James Chats About Touring with Chris Rock

Two-time Emmy nominated actress and comedian Janelle James says her favorite part about touring with Chris Rock was finally making money. The Abbott Elementary star says she remembers going to the movies with Chris during the day, seeing everyone watch him and thinking that she didn’t want to be as super famous as him.
