About Shawn and Marlon Wayans the movies "Little Man", "White Chicks" and "Scary Movie:

Shawn and Marlon Wayans made their acting debut in their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans' feature film "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka."

Immediately following their feature film debut, they joined the cast of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, "In Living Color." "The Wayans Bros." sitcom, which Shawn and Marlon created and starred in, was the first WB show to be sold into syndication after heading up the WB network lineup for five years.

Shawn and Marlon's past film credits include the hit comedy "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood," which they co-wrote, produced and starred in together. The movie was a comic spoof of the coming-of-age-in- the-hood movies and is a huge cult favorite.

More recently Shawn and Marlon starred in the box office hit, "Little Man" and "White Chicks," both of which they also co-wrote and produced. he brothers began co-writing this string of blockbusters with the smash "Scary Movie" where they also starred along side each other, and was directed by their brother Keenen Ivory Wayans. Co-written, produced and starring Shawn and Marlon Wayans, "Scary Movie 2" was the only sequel in the "Scary Movie" franchise with direct Wayans involvement.

Shawn and Marlon were next seen on the big screen in "Dance Flick," the new comedy co-written with brother Keenen Ivory.
