BIG MOMMAS: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

MARTIN LAWRENCE (Malcolm/Big Momma, Executive Producer) is one of America's most popular actor/comedians, with starring roles in hit movies such as "Big Momma's House” "Big Momma's House 2,” "Bad Boys” "Bad Boys 2,” "Blue Streak” and "National Security.” Lawrence's many other screen credits include "Do the Right Thing,” "Talkin' Dirty After Dark,” "House Party,” "House Party 2,” "Boomerang,” "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” (which he also co-wrote and directed), "Nothing to Lose,” "Life,” "What's the Worst That Could Happen?” and "Black Knight,” among others.

In 2010, Lawrence starred in "Death at A Funeral” opposite Chris Rock and Tracey Morgan. In 2009, Martin starred in two popular films: the comedy "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins” about a talk show host who leaves LA to reunite with his family in the Deep South, and "College Road Trip” about an overprotective cop who takes his daughter on a road trip to find the perfect college for her. Other recent films include the hit comedy "Wild Hogs,” as well as "Open Season,” where he gave the voice to grizzly bear Boog.

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

Lawrence was then chosen by music mogul Russell Simmons to host HBO's "Def Comedy Jam,” a groundbreaking showcase for young comedians. 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. Lawrence went on to co-create, executive produce and star in Fox Television's "Martin." The hit sitcom, which ran from 1992-1997, earned three NAACP Image Awards and is one of several series credited with helping solidify the fledgling Fox network's standing within the industry. Lawrence has also starred in two hugely successful concert films -- "You So Crazy" and "Martin Lawrence Live: Runtledat" -- and has recorded the Billboard Top 10 concert album "Talkin' Shit" and the Grammy®-nominated "Funk It."
