Have you noticed Marlon Wayans’ style lately? In recent times (not to negate previous times) Wayans hasn’t missed a beat when stepping on the red carpet. The 42-year-old has got impressive style and we’ve got the pictures to prove it! This year, the comedian was busy promoting the film that he wrote and starred in, Haunted House 2 (released in April) which called for heavy press time. In an old interview Wayans’ discussed some of the difficulties that came with writing parodies:
Parody and sketch are two of the hardest mediums to take on in comedy because everything is a joke. The description of where you’re at, the description of the character, the dialog, the response from the other character, the action, the location, everything is a joke and you’re doing it for 110 pages – throwing out thousands of jokes only to keep a hundred of which maybe ten will make it.
Wayans also has film writing credits for movies such as White Chicks (2004) and Scary Movie (2000) as well as the sequel Scary Movie 2 (2001) to name a few. He is gifted at both acting and writing. In another interview, he talked why he made the decision to start writing his own films:
I love it all but at the core, I do all of this because there are just so few roles in Hollywood and everyone goes out for those few roles. And even though, when I was young and auditioning for things, I did get the roles but it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I write and I produce, so that I can act in the kind of movies I want to be in. Make movies that showcase my comedic abilities and has my sense of humor. You know a little warped, a little crazy. I just want people to laugh and not think too much. I just want people to just go laugh and be a kid.
