Schaumburg, IL (Sept. 9, 2019)
Wayans can next be seen starring in the upcoming Netflix movie SEXTUPLETS which tells the story of Alan (Wayans), a man embarking on a personal journey to meet his birth mother before the arrival of his first child. When Alan meets his brother, Russell, he discovers that he was born a sextuplet and decides to seek out his four other siblings (all played by Marlon). Together, the two brothers set out on a road trip to track down the rest of the family that they’ve never known. The film is slated to premiere on the streaming site in August of 2019.
Wayans starred for two seasons on the NBC sitcom Marlon. Loosely based on his life, Marlon is a family comedy centered around a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife, played by Essence Atkins. Both seasons of Marlon are currently airing on Netflix.
Wayans also stars in the hit Netflix movie Naked which premiered on the streaming site last August. Based on the Swedish film, Naken, the romantic comedy co-stars Regina Hall and reunites Wayans with director Michael Tiddes. Marlon, who is also a writer and producer on the movie, stars as Rob Anderson, a charming man-child, who wakes up on his wedding day, naked in an elevator, reliving the hour before the ceremony over and over again. He last starred in Fifty Shades Of Black, which he also wrote and executive-produced, in January 2016.
Wayans has also launched the online venture, What The Funny, with internet serial entrepreneur and Funny Or Die co-founder Randy Adams. What The Funny serves up urban comedy from established and emerging comedians, writers and actors through its web site at WhatTheFunny.com.
Wayans is commonly recognized for his role as ‘Marcus Copeland’ in Columbia Pictures’ 2004 hit comedy White Chicks, opposite Shawn Wayans, Jamie King and Terry Crews. He also starred alongside Shawn Wayans and Regina Hall in Dimension Films’ horror comedy spoof films Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2, directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans.
