Marlon Wayans stopped by Atlanta's Atlantic Station last night to meet and spoil the press with light hor d'ourves and wine while watching scenes from his upcoming film A Haunted House 2

He walked in with jokes and laughter but was very open about life, family, work and his rumored role as Richard Pryor. 

A Haunted House 2 is the sequel from the 2013 breakaway comedy A Haunted House. Wayans confirmed that many fan favorites will return in part 2, but new faces are also to be expected. 

The press got to see a few scenes that were classic Marlon Wayans funny. Gushing about how awesome the movie-making experience was, Marlon is all too excited to give his fans what they want. 

White Chicks 2? Stay tuned! 

A Haunted House 2 opens Friday, April 18th 2014! 

NEW OWN DOCU-SERIES "DEION'S FAMILY PLAYBOOK" PREMIERING SATURDAY, MARCH 1 AT 10PM ET/PT

  
OWN's new docu-series, "Deion's Family Playbook," follows Deion Sanders off the field and into his home.  The series premieres this Saturday, March 1 at 10pm ET/PT.


 "Deion's Family Playbook" is a fun-filled and compelling real-life story of Deion Sanders, a single father raising five kids of his own, while also helping to raise five other children who live with him (including the twins whom his mother cares for, his niece and nephew and a student in need whom he recently took into his home).  Additionally, Deion is co-founder and football coach of Prime Prep Academy, a charter school that aims to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in under-served areas. With so much on his plate both at school and at home, Deion strives to keep all facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control.   Help is on the way every other week when his girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds, a Hollywood producer who has two sons of her own, comes to visit.

Spike Lee Confirms “School Daze” Sequel

Jada Pinkett Smith Joins Gotham as Fish Mooney—Get the Details!

Jada Pinkett Smith
by CHRIS HARNICK
There's a new villain in Gotham City and she's none other than Jada Pinkett Smith. The HawthoRNe star has signed on to play Fish Mooney in Gotham on Fox.
The character, which is original to the show, is described as a hothead "sadistic gangster boss" and owns one of Gotham's hottest nightclubs. She's got street smarts and "almost extra-sensory abilities to read people like an open book."
Gotham chronicles the beginnings of Batman's rogues gallery. Southland star Ben McKenzie stars as James Gordon, the man who will one day become Batman's trusted ally and commissioner of the Gotham City police. Donal Logue has been tapped to play Detective Harvey Bullock, Gordon's partner.
"I'm super excited. Gotham—it was weird, I've never been on a ride like that…I met them and talked to them and there was some weird internet rumor that I was playing Commissioner Gordon—he wasn't the commissioner at the time—and I'm like, ‘I'm way too old, man!' It was weird to be part of this kind of ongoing discussion that I was not in the mix of," Logue told E! News in February. "It's an exciting thing; it's going to be here in New York. It's one of those funny things where they're super secretive, so you have to go to a secret place to read a script and give away your phone."
The announced cast also includes Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot, the man who will eventually become the Penguin; Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne's butler; Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Gordon and Bullock's boss; and Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Gordon's fiancé. In Gotham, Bruce Wayne will be a 12-year-old boy.
