Shawn Wayans on the WGNT Morning Show

Shawn Wayans stopped by our morning show last Friday.

Claudine and I greeted Shawn when he came in – and of course I had to tell him how much I love his hilarious movies. Truth.

Most notably: Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood; Scary Movie; and White Chicks. Gotten me through some rough times! He laughed.

The Wayans family is filled with talented members, so there is no surprise that the two youngest brothers, Shawn and Marlon Wayans, have followed in their family’s footsteps as Hollywood icons.

Both Shawn and Marlon Wayans made their acting debut in 1989 in their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans’ feature film, “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka.” Immediately following their feature film debut, they joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, “In Living Color.”

“The Wayans Bros.” sitcom, which Shawn and Marlon created and starred in, was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after heading up the WB network lineup for five years. Shawn and Marlon’s past film credits include the hit comedy, “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood.” More recently Shawn and Marlon starred in the box office hit, “Little Man” and “White Chicks,” both of which they also co-wrote and produced. The brothers began co-writing this string of blockbusters with the smash “Scary Movie” and “Scary Movie 2.”
