Tha actor first got his start when he appeared in a small role in 1988’s parody film I’m Gonna Git You Sucka and has since appeared in many comedies; however, Marlon decided to take a step from his usual comedic roles when he landed a dramatic role in Darren Aronofsky’s 2000 psychological drama film Requiem For A Dream opposite Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly.
