Wayans, Little Man on Starz
In Revolution Studios’ hilarious comedy Little Man, big things come in small packages. Darryl Edwards (Shawn Wayans) is so eager to become a father that he mistakes Calvin Sims (Marlon Wayans), a short, baby-faced thief on the lam, for an abandoned toddler. He and his wife take the “baby” into their home while Calvin’s partner Percy P (Tracy Morgan) tries to help him recover a stolen diamond.
Little Man also stars Kerry Washington, John Witherspoon, Tracy Morgan, Lochlyn Munro, Chazz Palminteri and Molly Shannon. The film is directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans. The film was written by Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans.
The Wayans Brothers Marathon of movies on Starz InBlack will include the following programming (all times are ET/PT):
• Little Man Exclusives – Two exclusive featurettes and one exclusive scene from the film will air throughout the marathon giving viewers a unique look at the Wayans latest film with movie clips, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew.
• The Sixth Man (July 13 at 7:00 p.m. and July 14 at 12:35 a.m. and 8:15 a.m.) – After the loss of his brother and fellow teammate Antoine (Kadeem Hardison), Kenny Tyler (Marlon Wayans) and the rest of the Washington Huskies college basketball team are in need of some heavenly help to save their failing season. The return of Antoine’s ghost to help Kenny leads the team on a hilarious journey to turn their season around and make it to the championship.
• White Chicks (July 13 at 9:00 p.m. and July 14 at 2:35 a.m. and 8:15 a.m.) – After Kevin and Marcus Copeland (Shawn and Marlon Wayans respectively) ruin a drug bust, the FBI agents attempt to save their careers by volunteering to protect two hotel heiresses from being kidnapped. In hopes of catching the kidnapper the two brothers go undercover as the two sisters and try to fit in amongst the crème de la crème of Hampton society.
• Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood (July 13 at 11:00 p.m. and July 14 at 4:35 a.m.) – This film follows Ashtray (Shawn Wayans) and his best friend Loc Dog (Marlon Wayans) as they grow up in a very cliché urban neighborhood. The movie is a laugh-a-minute parody of popular films about African American youths growing up in the ‘hoods of America. Boyz N the Hood and South Central are just two of the many “coming of age” movies spoofed in this classic Wayans brother’s film.
