Wayans Brothers Interview - Shawn & Marlon (pg. 2)
Sindy: What kind of car do you drive?
Marlon: I have two Range Rovers - one is an early '90s and I just got a new one.
Shawn: I have a Range Rover and a Porche.
Marlon: We don't have lots of cars because cars are depreciating assets. They start losing money on them as soon as you buy them. You need to get yourself bonds before you get cars.
Shawn: Don't go throwing money away on cars.
Sindy: What inspired the Scary Movie franchise?
Marlon: There was room for parody in that genre but we were only involved in Scary Movie one and two.
Shawn: Yeah, don't blame us for three and four. We had nothing to do with that. Sorry kids!
Sindy: Favorite actor you've worked with so far?
Marlon: Eddie Murphy was my favorite actor to work with.
Sindy: Actor you'd like to collaborate with that you haven't had the chance to yet?
Marlon: I'd like to do a full movie with Eddie Murphy because I only did a scene with him in the past.
Sindy: Do you still keep in touch with any of your In Living Color co-stars?
Marlon: Yeah, Kim (our sister) of course. We go to BBQ's at Jim Carrey's house and we hang out with Jamie Foxx sometimes.
Sindy: Any plans for an In Living Color reunion?
Both: No. Everyone's too big a star now. We couldn't afford to pay them!
Sindy: Do ever feel that you are in competition with your other siblings?
Both: There's friendly competition but we all support each other.
Sindy: What do you prefer - acting or writing?
Marlon: I like both for different reasons. With writing you get to be really creative and use your mind but with acting you really get to physically express yourself.
Sindy: Favorite movie other than your own?
Marlon: The Bridges of Madison County, Eddie Murphy: Raw, Coming to America.
Sindy: Will you ever go back to a live-action TV?
Marlon: Yeah, but not until further down the road. I want to concentrate on writing and films right now.
Sindy: What do you like to do in your downtime?
Both: Hang out by the pool with our friends, spend time with our family, play football.
Sindy: What advice do you have for kids wanting to get into the industry?
Marlon: Just find what you love to do and pursue that. It's pursuing something whole-heartedly that makes you a success, not the money or the fame.
Shawn: And stay off the drugs.
