You’ve got to hand it to these two younger brothers of practically the entire cast of In Living Color – they hang around. These days, the famous Wayans brothers are all at various states of repose: Keenan Ivory’s initial, mad creative burst is now a couple of decades in the rearview; former livewire Damon’s transition to family comedy seems ever more complete (and kinda right) with the success of his grown son’s sitcom, Happy Endings, and sister Kim discovered her dramatic side with last year’s Pariah as the title character’s mother.

Prolific co-writers and co-producers, the pair is capable of both cringe-worthy silliness (White Chicks) and riotous irreverence (Scary Movie).
