‘Fargo’: Glynn Turman To Recur In Season 4 Of FX Series
Exclusive: Glynn Turman (Mr. Mercedes) is set for a recurring role opposite Chris Rock on the upcoming fourth season of FX’s Fargo.

The fourth season is set in Kansas City in 1950. The city will serve as the crossroads and collision point of two migrations, Italians coming from Italy and African Americans fleeing the south to escape Jim Crow, both fighting for a piece of the American dream as two controlling crime syndicates. They are at an uneasy peace controlling an alternate economy of exploitation, graft and drugs. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest son.

Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his youngest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his enemy’s son as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the

Marlon Wayans Thinks Fans 'Deserve' a White Chicks Sequel: 'I Love the Movie'
Marlon Wayans’ White Chicks costar Terry Crews stirred up talks of a second installment earlier this summer when he told Andy Cohen that he and Shawn Wayans are “getting it going.”

Though Marlon, 47, shared on Instagram that no set plans are in place for a sequel to the 2004 comedy, that doesn’t mean he isn’t down for one.

“It depends on a lot of different factors, but off the top, I’m passionate about it,” he tells People in this week’s issue. “I love the movie.”

Marlon even got practice dressing as a woman again in his latest film,

Marlon Wayans Plays 6 Characters in Netflix's Sextuplets: 'It Took Everything That I've Learned'

The new comedy Sextuplets dropped on Netflix when the clock struck midnight on Friday, but star Marlon Wayans had no plans to watch.

“I’m going to sleep,” he tells People. “I like watching it with an audience. When I get back to L.A. I’ll invite my friends over [to watch Sextuplets].”

The restful evening came after a demanding filming schedule that kept Wayans — who plays a whopping six characters in the film — working 15-18 hour days for 51 days.

“It took everything that I’ve learned in the last 40 year to execute something like this,” the actor, 47, says. “Everything from performing

Film Review: Marlon Wayans in ‘Sextuplets’ on Netflix

Film Review: Marlon Wayans in ‘Sextuplets’ on Netflix
Once the funniest and most ubiquitous family in Hollywood, the Wayans siblings — Damon, Keenen Ivory, Kim, Shawn and so on — have largely faded from the scene in recent years, leaving youngest brother Marlon (now nearing 50) to carry the mantle. Audiences may not be showing up for sendups like “Scary Movie” and “Dance Flick” like they used to, but Marlon has figured out a foolproof solution: Make lowbrow laffers with search-friendly titles directly for Netflix, and the checks keep rolling in.

First it was “Naked” — a “Groundhog Day”-style infinite-repeat scenario in which Marlon plays a groom who wakes up au naturel on his wedding day, over and over until he gets it right — and now it’s “Sextuplets,” which is the first thing that pops up when you type “S-e-x” into Netflix. In both cases, lonely viewers looking for something spicy will have to settle for a relatively bland and half-baked comedy,

Marlon Wayans would like to play DC’s Plastic Man

Comedic actor Marlon Wayans, best known as the writer of Scary Movie and White Chicks, has claimed that the role he’d like to play in a comic book movie is Plastic Man.

In an exclusive interview with ScreenRant, Wayans was originally promoting his upcoming Netflix film Sextuplets before he revealed the one superhero he would like to play.

“I would love to play Plastic Man,” Wayans said. “I think he works with the comedic skill set that I have, in terms of how I’m physical, I’m bendy. And I think it’d be cool to just do it without… You know, what’s great about Black Panther is he’s a black superhero, right? But sometimes [it’s fun] to just do something. Like, you wouldn’t think Plastic Man was a black guy, but it’s not black – it’s just, he’s plastic. I think it’d be fun for me,

Over the Top Ridiculous Trailer for Marlon Wayans's Sextuplets Is Sure to Make You Laugh

There are some movies that are just quintessentially ‘90s. The movies where one comedian plays all the characters, the irreverent humor, the slapstick comedy, it all contributed to a great ‘90s film.

Today we have a trailer for you to enjoy that looks like it’s right out of that camp. Marlon Wayans is back with a hilarious and ridiculous film called Sextuplets about a guy who sets out to find his birth family. He is surprised to learn that he was a sextuplet and dreams of the siblings he never knew.

He goes out to find them and is met with an insane group of weirdos (all played by him) that take him on the ride of a lifetime. I laughed so hard during this stupid trailer that I think I have to see this movie. It looks like it will be a hilariously good time.

Sextuplets Trailer Has Marlon Wayans Channeling His Inner Klump to Play 6 Siblings

  • MovieWeb
Netflix has dropped the first trailer for their upcoming Sextuplets movie. Marlon Wayans stars and plays six characters in the comedy. Playing multiple characters in a comedy is not a new idea, but Wayans seems to be putting his own spin on things, though there have immediately been the inevitable comparisons to Eddie Murphy's roles in Coming to America and the Nutty Professor franchise. Mike Myers also did the same thing in the Austin Powers franchise.

Sextuplets features Marlon Wayans' character Alan as he and his wife are expecting their first child. Before the baby comes, Alan is intent on finding his birth mother and while doing research, he meets his brother, Russell, and discovers that he was born a sextuplet. From there, the duo seek to find the four other siblings. Things unfold rather quickly in the trailer as we're introduced to all of Alan's siblings and everything goes off the rails.

‘Sextuplets’ Trailer: Marlon Wayans Dons Prosthetics & Wigs To Play 6 Long Lost Siblings In New Netflix Comedy

There was a moment when Eddie Murphy was known for his penchant for playing multiple characters in his comedies. Perhaps his best film featuring this gimmick is “Coming to America.” However, after that film came “The Nutty Professor” and its sequel ‘The Klumps.’ Now, in 2019, Marlon Wayans is here to carry the torch for this brand of whacky, multiple character comedy with the Netflix film “Sextuplets.”

Marlon Wayans & Marlon Wayans in Trailer for 'Sextuplets' for Netflix

"Since we hit the road together, I've done things I've only seen on television." Netflix has just launched an official trailer for a new comedy from Marlon Wayans titled Sextuplets, and it looks as awful as it sounds and seems just from that title alone. From the director of the spoofs A Haunted House and Fifty Shades of Black comes a new comedy about an expecting father-to-be who discovers that he has many other siblings and tries to track them down before his baby is born. This is a spoof on, another comedy, maybe? But who cares, it looks terrible. Marlon Wayans stars in the lead role, and plays all the other siblings, much like Tyler Perry does in his movies. The cast also includes Molly Shannon, Glynn Turman, Bresha Webb, Debbi Morgan, and Michael Ian Black. Why do they still make these kind of movies? It looks so, so bad.

‘On the Rocks’: Marlon Wayans Joins Sofia Coppola’s Apple/A24 Movie

‘On the Rocks’: Marlon Wayans Joins Sofia Coppola’s Apple/A24 Movie
It comes as little surprise that Bill Murray is in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming “On the Rocks,” but the latest addition to the cast is a bit unusual: Marlon Wayans, who just joined the joint venture between Apple and A24. The actor, comedian, and screenwriter has mostly appeared in comedies throughout his career, from spoofs like “Scary Movie” and “A Haunted House” to TV series like “In Living Color” and his sitcom “Marlon,” but his filmography is not without auteur projects: Wayans worked with Darren Aronofsky on “Requiem for a Dream” and the Coen Brothers on “The Ladykillers.”

He’s also been involved with several Netflix projects of late, starring in 2017’s “Naked” and the upcoming “Sextuplets”; the streaming service also has exclusive rights to “Marlon” in many regions, advertising it as a Netflix Original outside the Us. Deadline first broke the news of his casting.
