LITTLE MAN

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

Most recently, Marlon Wayans and brother Shawn co-wrote and starred in the box office smash White Chicks for Revolution Studios and Columbia Pictures, the story of two disgraced FBI agents who go way undercover in an effort to protect hotel heiresses, the Wilson Sisters, from a kidnapping plot.

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-agein- the-‘hood genre.

Other film credits include The Ladykillers, The Sixth Man, Senseless with David Spade and Matthew Lillard, Requiem For A Dream, where he gave a compelling dramatic performance as drug addict Tyrone C. Love, Dungeon & Dragons, the film adaptation of the hugely successful board game, and the box office hits Scary Movie, which he co-wrote and starred in, and Scary Movie 2, which he executive produced along with Shawn under the direction of Keenen Ivory Wayans. Marlon also just recently finished "Thug-A-Boo,” a children's animated project for Nickelodeon, which he co-created, co-wrote and co-executive produced along with Shawn Wayans.

In the spring of 2005, the three Wayans brothers launched their own trading card game called "The Dozens” through their company SMK Merchandising The Wayans also have a book deal with St. Martins Press to release their 101 Ways book series. In addition to the game and books, the Wayans brothers are currently considering business ventures that take them into sports and property development.

The Wayans brothers recently formed their own comic book company, "5-D Comics.” Marlon co-created and co-wrote (with his brothers) Super Bad James Dynomite, a comedic comic book distributed by IDW.
