Imagine Marlon Wayans as the Robin to Val Kilmer’s Batman
March 1st, 2018 under Batman, Jimmy Fallon, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know that Marlon Wayans was originally cast as Robin in Batman Forever? Yesterday when he was on The Tonight Show, he explained to Jimmy Fallon what happened.

He auditioned for Tim Burton, who was the directing the movie at the time, and he got the part. Then they decided to go another way because they were introducing all of these other characters like Catwoman and the Penguin to the franchise. They felt the followup to this movie would be Batman & Robin.

I guess the studio didn’t like that idea and replaced Burton with Joel Schumacher, and the latter decided to bring Chris O’Donnell on as the Caped Crusader’s sidekick.

Was Wayans upset with being recasted? At first yes, but then he realized, “You can’t have a Robin with a bigger cod piece.” Now had they waited until George Clooney took over The Dark Knight than that would not have been a problem. We have all heard the rumors that they had to make the crotch bigger for his costume.

Now that you know Wayans was the original Robin, do you think he would have done a good job in the part?


BTWF roles: Marlon Wayans in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka
August 16th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Before Marlon Wayans’ brothers let him star in their movies, if you blinked you would miss him in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. He looks the same now as he did when he was just 15 in that 1988 movie.


What’s new Tonight: Marlon and Growing Up Supermodel
August 16th, 2017 under Lifetime, NBC, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Marlon Wayans is getting his own comedy Marlon on NBC tonight at 9p and he is just a highlarious as his older brothers.

The show focuses on him being a recently divorced dad with two teenage kids, and he is more immature than them. Even though, Marlon and Ashley (Essence Atkins) do not live together anymore, he spends just as much time there as when they were married. Something Ashley wishes he would do less of.

If that is not enough people in her house, her best friend Yvette (Bresha Webb) is over all the time along with his BFF Stevie (Diallo Riddle). Yvette, who is sassy, and Marlon do not like each other in the least. Then there is Stevie, who has been out of work for 2 years and sleeps on Marlon’s couch.

What about the kids, Zack (Amir O’Neil) and Marley (Notlim Taylor)? Marlon will try his hardest to raise them right, but since he is a big kid that does not always work out the right way. But he is always there when they need him. Like when the school’s quarterback uses Marley to get a good grade.

They are today’s version of a modern family who find themselves in interesting situations like when Ashley wants to have sex and thinks it will be OK to do it with Marlon. That goes just as bad as you would think it would.

If you are looking to laugh with your kids, then this is the show for you…even if you do not have kids.

Then at 10p but Lifetime is a reality show with some of the biggest last names in Hollywood. Growing Up Supermodel is a show that follows celebrity kids who trying to make in modeling.

There is Ricky Schroder’s daughters Cambrie and Faith, who are dealing with their parents divorcing. Shanna Moakler and Oscar De La Hoya’s daughter Atiana, Kelly Le Brock and Steven Seagal’s daughter Arissa, Beverly Peele’s mini-me Cairo and finally Krista Allen’s son Jake. Their parents names get them through the doors, but they have to work to stay there.

You will see them struggle to make it on their own while getting advice from their parents who have been through it all before. It is a new look at what it is like to be a child of celebrity.


Empire has a Lethal Weapon this season
September 21st, 2016 under Empire, Fox, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Lethal Weapon gets a small screen makeover and it is as exciting as the big screen one. Tonight at 8p on Fox get to know Clayne Crawford as Riggs and Damon Wayans as Murtaugh.
Riggs recently lost his wife and that caused the cop to have a death wish. He recently moved and he is teamed up with his new partner Murtaugh. The latter recently had a heart attack and became a father for the 3rd time, so he doesn’t want to die. Making this team interesting. Good thing Murtaugh’s wife Keesha Sharp will keep them in line.
LW is like a procedural made for the big screen, but we get to tune into a sequel each week.

Then at 9p, Empire is back but someone isn’t. Is it just one person? Or two? Or three? Or is it no one at all? The episode picks up right after the season finale, so we immediately find out what happens. The incident causes a ripple effect that everyone will feel. Don’t want to more than that. Well just that it is back, better than ever.


BTWF roles: Keenen Ivory Wayans on Cheers
June 2nd, 2016 under Before They Were Famous, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Before Keenen Ivory Wayans was in Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, he wasn’t a menace to Boston when Diane screwed up his drinks in Cheers. He looks the same now as he did when he was 24 in that 1982 episode except he had hair then.
