DRUMLINE

NICK CANNON (Devon), who makes his motion picture starring debut in the film, is well-known as the star (as well as creator and executive producer) of his own Nickelodeon series, "The Nick Cannon Show," now in its first year on the popular cable network.

The multi-faceted Cannon began performing as a youngster, dabbling in drums, harmonica and synthesizers at the age of eight. He soon mastered song-making and recorded his first child-inspired harmonies on his boom box. Before hitting his teen years, Cannon began performing his music and comedy routines on the stage. He then founded his San Diego-based rap duo, Da Bom Squad. Their hip-hop rhythm rocked such venues as "Billboard Live" and shared the stage with such musical performers as Montell Jordan, LFO and Will Smith.

Cannon headed for Hollywood at age sixteen, and immediately landed plum assignments at such renowned venues as The Improv, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store -- performing alongside the likes of Chris Tucker, Chris Rock and Damon Wayans. The industry took notice of this rising new talent, with Cannon winning the gig as warm-up act for Nickelodeon's long-running hit series, "All That." The show's producers recognized that Cannon's talent belonged in front of the cameras and soon made him a series regular and co-host of the cable network's "All That Musical Festival and More" 47-city tour. His later work as co-host of Nickelodeon's "Snick House" and host of its music-based "TEENick" programming block catapulted his career, leading to the creation of his new, eponymous series.

In addition to his work on Nickelodeon, Cannon guest-starred on UPN's "The Parkers" and, with his mentor, Will Smith, developed a TV pilot for the WB network called "Loose Cannon" -- produced by Smith and written by and starring Cannon.
