Lawrence will next star in Walt Disney Pictures' College Road Trip, a comedy about an overprotective cop who takes his daughter on the search for her perfect school, opening March 7, 2008.

Lawrence has starred in several projects recently, including the hit comedy Wild Hogs and the 20th Century Fox comedy Rebound. He gave his voice to the grizzly bear Boog in Sony Pictures Animation's Open Season and he reprised the lead roles in the box-office success Big Momma's House 2.

Lawrence began his career as a stand-up comedian, gained major attention at Hollywood's legendary Improv, and shortly thereafter, won a performance spot on TV's popular talent showcase Star Search. Columbia Television executives, impressed by his Star Search appearance, offered Lawrence his first acting job, a regular role on the sitcom What's Happening Now!!

Lawrence was then personally chosen by music mogul Russell Simmons to host his groundbreaking showcase for young comedians, HBO's Def Comedy Jam. Lawrence worked on the show for two seasons and is credited with helping expose a new generation of stand-up comics, including Chris Tucker, Damon Wayans, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer.

The actor/comedian went on to co-create, executive-produce and star in Fox Television's Martin. The hit sitcom, which ran from 1992 to1997, earned three NAACP Image Awards, and is one of several series credited with helping solidify the fledgling Fox network within the industry. Lawrence has also starred in two hugely successful concert films: You So Crazy and Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat; and has recorded the Billboard top 10 concert album "Talkin' Shit” and the Grammy-nominated "Funk It”.
