Damien Wayans
Damien Wayans is one of the most prolific young talents working in entertainment today. He is the son of Elvira Wayans, nephew of Keenan Ivory Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans, and Damon Wayans. Amidst this proficient and versatile family, Damien Wayans has become a skilled entertainer in his own right.

At 24 years old, Damien has accomplished more in the entertainment industry than most people have conpuered in their lifetime. He began his film career in the Eddie Murphy documentary "Eddie Murphy Raw," back in 1987, still the highest grossing concert film of all-time. He soon progressed to larger film roles in "Major Payne" (1995), "Donít Be a Menace in South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood" (1996), Passing Flory" (1999) and "Malibuís Most Wanted" (2003). Damien will soon be seen alongside Kevin Spacey, Justin Timberlake and Morgan Freeman in director David J. Burkeís Edison (2005).

In 2001, Damien not only began writing, but also directing for star and uncle Damon Wayansí hit-television series "My Wife and Kids." Damien has written 6 episodes, directed nearly 20 episodes, and in the 2004-2005 season, plans on directing 10 more. In 2004, Damien wrote, produced, directed and stars in the short film "The Last Meal," a provocative and suspenseful tale of one manís redemption.

Damien was born in New York City where he attended St. Anthonyís High School in Jersey City, and was a star basketball player. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
