Martin Lawrence Height, Weight, Age & Wife

A stand-up comedian and actor, Martin Lawrence has taken on several acting roles throughout his career. After being a cast member on What’s Happening Now!! for many years during the 80’s, he played the titular role in the sitcom, Martin in 1992. Responsible for kicking off his career, the show was met with critical acclaim upon its release that summer. One of Fox’s highest-rated series during its run, it went on to yield him several accolades including two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy. To date, Martin remains to be his best-remembered show on television.

Many years later in 2014, he joined the main cast of the FX sitcom, Partners. Premiered in the summer of 2014, the story centered around two Chicago lawyers, both of whom come from vastly different backgrounds. Playing opposite of Kelsey Grammer, he took on the role of Marcus Jackson, a community activist who is in the middle of a divorce. His most recent role on television, the show continued for ten episodes prior to ending in September 2014. That same year, he also made a brief guest appearance in the show, The Soul Man.

Aside from those two shows, most of his filmography credits have been on the big screen. In 2000, he starred in the action comedy, Big Momma’s House, which saw him playing the part of an undercover FBI agent. A huge box office hit, the movie made over $117 million in the United States alone! For his portrayal of Malcolm Turner, he of course also received a handful of award nominations. From then until now, Lawrence has reprised the role two times- once in the 2006 sequel, Big Momma’s House 2 and a second time in Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (2011).

Aside from the Big Momma series, he appeared in several other films throughout 2000’s. For instance, he played Jamal Walker in comedy, Black Knight (2001) and Earl Montgomery in the autobiographical feature, Rebound (2005). Some of the other titles that he’s been involved with include, Open House (2006), Wild Hogs (2007), Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins (2008), College Road Trip (2008), and Death at a Funeral (2010). In terms of upcoming roles, it has been announced that he will be playing the part of Detective Marcus Burnett in the films, Bad Boys for Life and Bad Boys 4. Outside of acting, he’s also released a couple of stand-up films titled, Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat in 2002 and Martin Lawrence: Down’ Time in 2016.
