Brutally's picture

One current box office success story features a young actor named Damon Wayans Jr. in a comical role as a fake cop who gets caught up in real trouble. He is joined by Jake Johnson, Andy Garcia and Rob Riggle. The movie is receiving some rave reviews...maybe not from the judges for the Oscars...but from fans of comedy. Now, the name Damon Wayans Jr. might sound familiar. That's because his father, Damon Wayans Sr., is a film and TV legend.

Damon Wayans Sr. is well known for his work on "In Living Color" back in the 1990s as well as a brief stint on "Saturday Night Live." He also had film roles in Blankman and Major Payne. His humor was often a little bit extreme and usually off the wall. Yet, no member of the audience could resist laughing with it.

Damon Wayans Jr. has landed some nice roles in his brief career. Fans remember him in My Wife and Kids alongside his father, he also joined Will Ferrell for The Other Guys. Wayans Jr. has joined Lucy Punch for Someone Marry Barry as well.

Look for Wayans Jr. to appear doing voicework in the animated comedy Big Hero 6.
