RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION
While performing at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, MIKE EPPS (L.J.)
caught the attention of musician/actor Ice Cube who cast him in the comedy Next Friday.
Epps next appeared in 3 Strikes, Bait with Jamie Foxx for director Antoine Fuqua and the
Method Man and Redman hit How High. He teamed up with Ice Cube again to star in All
About the Benjamins, which Ice Cube also co-wrote and Epps served as co-executive
producer, and returned to the Friday series in Friday After Next. Most recently, Epps
appeared in The Fighting Temptations, starring Cuba Gooding Jr., and BeyoncĂ© Knowles.
Epps, always the class cut-up, got his start as a teenager by performing in local
stand-up comedian contests. His success in his home state of Indiana gave him the
courage to move to Atlanta, where he made a name for himself at the Comedy Act
Theatre. Epps then moved to New York City where he was able to break into some of
the comedy clubs and soon found himself a part of HBO's Def Comedy Jam. Not only
did he star in two of Def Jam's broadcast programs, Epps also toured with Def Comedy
Jam and has appeared on numerous national comedy programs, including Uptown
Comedy Club and BET's The Comedy Store.
He reprises his role of L.J. in this film after playing the character in Resident Evil:
