Shawn & Marlon Wayans

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.

    I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

    I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

    The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
