THE LADYKILLERS

After graduating from the famed High School of Performing Arts in New York, MARLON WAYANS (Gawain) studied at Howard University's Film School. From there, Marlon headed out west to join the cast of the Emmy Award-winning comedy series, "In Living Color.” In 1990, young Wayans created and starred in the sitcom The Wayans Bros, which headed up the WB network lineup for five years.

Wayans co-wrote and starred in the box office smash "Scary Movie” along with his brother Shawn Wayans and directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. The film was such a success that he was most recently seen starring in the sequel, "Scary Movie 2,” which he also co-wrote and co-executive produced.

Wayans's career has been going strong ever since. After starring in the feature films "Mo' Money” and "Above the Rim,” Wayans wrote, executive produced, and starred in the hit comedy "Don't be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.” The film parodies the coming-of-age-in-the-‘hood genre. Next, Marlon starred in "The Sixth Man” and "Senseless” with David Spade and Matthew Lillard.

Marlon was seen giving a compelling dramatic performance as drug addict Tyrone C. Love in the critically acclaimed "Requiem for a Dream,” directed by Darren Aronofsky for Artisan Entertainment. He also starred in the film adaptation of the hugely successful board game "Dungeons & Dragons” for New Line Cinema.Marlon along with his brothers Shawn and Keenen Ivory have signed a two picture deal with Revolutions Studios. The first picture under this deal, "White Chicks,” which Marlon co-wrote, executive produces, and stars in, will be released this summer. The brothers are currently writing and refining the script for the second film.
