Kevin Hart invades Cosmo

His latest film is set here, and now he’s coming back to Vegas.

Comedian-actor Kevin Hart, who’s currently starring in box office champ “Think Like A Man Too,” a film best described as Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” meets “Pootie Tang” in terms visionary artistry and comedic genius, is taking over the Cosmopolitan Sept. 5-6.

Well, he’s not totally taking it over — dude’s making serious bank these days, but even he couldn’t handle that debt load.

Instead, he’s bringing “Hartbeat Weekend” to the property.

The festivities begin with a pair of performances of “Kevin Hart & Friends Comedy All-Stars Hosted By Kevin Hart” at the Chelsea.

The shows, which will take place at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., will feature some of Hart’s favorite stand-up comics as well as a “legendary surprise guest comedian” to headline each performance.

On Saturday, critically acclaimed rapper Kendrick Lamar, whose major label debut “good kid, m.A.A.d city” was one of the most lauded records of 2012, will perform at the Boulevard Pool.

Hart and friends will also make appearances at Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub and host a celebrity blackjack tournament.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
