Marlon Wayans talks about his career

Marlon Wayans is a funny man that has appeared in a bunch of films and worked behind the scenes on many more. Some of the most successful films that he has appeared in including the Scary Movie franchise making fun of horror films. He was in and worked behind the scenes on two of those films.

There were more films made that he and his famous brothers had nothing to do with reports LA Times. He said of that, "There's nothing to really have any kind of bitterness for, because the reality is we just couldn't make a deal. They knew it was going to be expensive to make a third one with us, so they went a different direction. We put a certain price on our jokes, and the franchise had made close to a billion dollars. We just wanted our slice of the pie, and we just couldn't come to terms. ... "Scary Movie" is like that child that you love that you put a lot of energy into, and then it went off to become a crackhead but you still love it because it's your child."

He's talking about this latest film A Haunted House 2, which had a thin $3 million budget. He said, "I don't have a trailer when I do these movies — I got a honeywagon. Picture a porta-potty with a bed in it. But I like the challenge. Making movies like this is preparing me for when I go back to studio movies — I'll be very responsible and know how to stretch the dollar."

Wayans was cast to portray Richard Pryor in a film about the comedian. Apparently, Marlon's brother Damon is in the running for the part too.

"I know it's either meant to be or it's not. Damon's a great choice. Better him than anybody else. Whoever does it, I'll be happy for them. I'll give them advice. I've been doing stand-up for 3 1/2 years to prepare for that moment to actually do that movie. To develop that skill set to play Pryor — it's not going to be easy. I've read eight books on Pryor. I know enough about the man. For me, it's important that they just do the movie right. ... But if I do it, I know I'll smash it. It'll probably be my best work because I'm so committed. But if it doesn't happen, I still think I'm gonna smash life and smash my career and do my best work because it's ahead of me."
