Marlon Wayans Talks Stand-Up, Dirty Work, and A Haunted House 2

There is something about a terrified Marlon Wayans that America loves. He made the first two Scary Movies, the memorable ones, and a decade later the people demand more of Marlon losing his shit.

He returns in fine form for A Haunted House 2, a follow-up to 2013's found-footage spoof, hitting theaters April 18th. But know this -- there is far more to Marlon Wayans than a shrill shriek. He's a comedic entrepreneur with as much ambition as slapstick prowess and the track record to back it up. We sat down with him to prove it.
