Marlon Wayans may be the baby of the bunch, but he’s making grown man moves as the man behind the A Haunted House movies.
“It felt good to do something on my own,” said Marlon whose equally funny siblings have helped him hone his craft. “They taught me so much, finally as a Jedi, I get to use The Force.”
Though he’s stepped out on his own for the original movie and the sequel, coming out April 18, Marlon still appreciates the approval of his big brothers.
“It feels good,” he said about hearing oldest brother Keenen Ivory Wayans laughing at his work or having Damon Wayans tell him, ‘That was a good job.’
“That meant the world to me,” explained Marlon who credits his oldest brother with molding him into the businessman he is today.
“If Keenen came to me and asked me for 50 percent [of the movie’s profit],” I would give it to him. That’s my brother,” he told the DJs at 105.1 radio station in New York. “He’s that guy. If he needs me for anything, it’s yours. I find myself quoting him a lot when I’m inspiring other people ‘cause he took me from being a little ghetto kid to being a businessman.”
Keenen introduced Marlon and the entire Wayans acting clan to the world by including them in his productions, like the groundbreaking series “In Living Color.”
Marlon said there’s no way he could ever repay his big brother, so he just tries to live up to his expectations.
“I repay him by just being successful and that honestly makes him feel great,” said Marlon who isn’t against purchasing a few material tokens of gratitude, too. “As pops get older, I got you.”
