Martin Lawrence

Born April 16, 1965

I first remember Martin Lawrence as a stand-up comedian. After that, he made the move to the small screen and then to movies. The whole time, Lawrence has kept his sense of humor, his sense of self and he has continued to turn out projects that everyone can enjoy.

Noteworthy

  • Bad Boys – The first one is still the best. Will Smith and Martin Larence pull of the action flick buddy cop movie without any problems.
  • Martin – This self-titled TV series was a huge success and ran for 132 episodes.
  • Life – Lawrence teams with Eddie Murphy in this prison comedy that had a lot of heart and passion.
  • Big Momma’s House – Lawrence is undercover as Big Momma. Gender-bending all the way to the bank.
  • Open Season – Lawrence voices Boog the Bear opposite Ashton Kutcher’s Elliot the Deer. I am going to have to watch this again soon now.

You might see some of the movies that I’m in where there are shades of drama or whatever, but for the most part, I don’t get offered serious roles.

Burt Reynolds

Diamond Dallas Page

Diamond Dallas Page Born April 5, 1956   Diamond Dallas Page is known as a wrestler that got into the business later in his life and became one of the fastest rising stars ever. For me, even when WCW was in its decline, he was part of the show that kept me entertained...

Matthew Gray Gubler

Matthew Gray Gubler Born March 9, 1980   Matthew Gray Gubler has long been one of my favorite characters on Criminal Minds. There is something about the character of Spencer Reid, the brains, the wit, the naivete - that makes the character work. But Gubler is a lot...

Star Wars: The FanBoy Awakens

I am a bit late to the party when it comes to Star Wars: The Force Awakens but it certainly is enough of a pop-culture phenom that I want to take some time to give it some love. For me this could have been renamed - Star Wars: The FanBoy Awakens! First things first, I...

Lee Daniels’ The Butler

I am very behind the times and I am sure that most of you have seen Lee Daniels' The Butler - probably, you even saw it when it came out in 2013. I didn't watch it until recently and it makes me said that I didn't see it in the theater. Incredible . star-studded,...
