Actor • Comedian • Writer • Producer

Birth Name: Marlon Lamont Wayans

Birth Date: July 23, 1972

Age: 51 years old

Birth Place: New York, New York

Siblings: Damon Wayans, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Kim Wayans

Marlon Lamont Wayans was born on July 23, 1972, in New York City. He was the youngest of 10 siblings, including fellow comedic actor brothers Keenen Ivory, Damon, and Shawn, and a comedic actor sister Kim.

Marlon's eldest sibling Dwayne was a composer who would go on to collaborate with his younger brothers on film and television projects. Thanks to his artistically inclined family, Marlon Wayans made his screen acting debut before even graduating high school by way of an appearance in his brother Keenen Ivory's directorial debut "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" (1988).

Marlon went on to enroll at Howard University, all the while appearing in films like "Mo' Money" (1992), written by his brother Damon, and "Above the Rim" (1994). At the same time, Marlon performed on and wrote for the sketch comedy series "In Living Color" (Fox 1990-94), created by Keenen Ivory.

Next, Marlon and his brother Shawn would go on to co-create the sitcom "The Wayans Bros." (The WB 1995-99), and then to co-author the parody film "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood" (1996). Marlon's starring role in "Requiem for a Dream" (2000) marked a celebrated dramatic turn for the actor, though he followed this up quickly with a return to comedy in the form of "Scary Movie" (2000) and "Scary Movie 2" (2001), which he co-wrote and co-starred in with Shawn Wayans.

The following years would bring Marlon high-profile projects like the Coen Brothers-directed "The Ladykillers" (2004), "White Chicks" (2004), "Little Man" (2006), and "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" (2009). Following a collection of parody projects like "A Haunted House" (2013) and "Fifty Shades of Black" (2016), Marlon returned to television with the family sitcom "Marlon" (Amazon 2017-).
