Marlon spent most of 2011 “laying low,” but wants to remind everyone that he had a dramatic role in Requiem for a Dream. Additionally, he spent the past few years starring in a couple films called Marmaduke and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Maybe you’ve heard of them
These three films are the three most critically praised works that any Wayans has starred in, so suffice it to say that Marlon is sitting pretty. Of course, a film like Marmaduke only comes around once in a generation, so you can’t make lightening strike twice.
Marlon has got a doozy of a project up his sleeve, but I’m not at liberty to say what it is!
OK. One hint.
It’s something he’s working with George Lopez on!!!! (But you didn’t hear it from me!)
Damon’s work recently has proven that you don’t need to be on TBS to get work as a black guy in middle-American entertainment! Though the show has been cancelled, Damon still finds time for “his wife and kids,” despite starring on ABC’s popular program Happy Endings.
You might also be surprised to know that Damon published a very serious book in 2010 called Red Hats. It’s okay that no one else in the family was involved in that project, because it was about a 65 year-old woman who tried to kill herself. Marlon said that he would be happy to co-write the book if they could reveal in the end that the woman was Little Man’s mom, but he said he wanted to go in a different, non-Little Man direction with the story. We don’t agree, but we respect the decision.
