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.
