Marlon Wayans Talks Scary Movie and Republican Pockets

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Annual Dinner Of Champions

Marlon Wayans has a new movie entitled A Haunted House, a comedy that he describes to The Root as "What] if Paranormal Activity happened to black people?

In their Q&A, Marlon expresses disappointment over the way the Scary Movie franchise turned out, plus explains why he has “Democrat skins with Republican pockets.” Oh, how I aspire to join thee.

TR: What do you think of the Scary Movie franchise now that your family has relinquished control?

MW: That’s a tough one. When we first did part one, we loved doing that movie. Part two was kind of rushed, but part three, after all of the nonsense, the [new heads] went a different way. Looking at Scary Movie II, I felt like a father that raised a wonderful child, she turns 18 and is out of your care, and she gets this new boyfriend that turns her into a crackhead. Then people start telling you, "Hey, I saw your daughter! She’s out there doing crack on the streets!" I still love her but I’m not responsible for her actions, and I keep thinking, "I raised her better than that." That’s what I think of Scary Movie.

I wish them well with the franchise, but other than that, it’s a crackhead … with crackheads in it. You’ve got Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen in it, and that’s just a big crackhead explosion.

TR: Switching gears, it’s almost Election Day, and you said something in the past like, "The more money I make, the more the Republican financial policies make sense to me." Do you still feel that way?

MW: I got Democrat skin but Republican pockets. It’s a total big lump of confusion. At the end of the day, I care about my country, so whatever I need to do to make our country better, I’m for that. I know who I’m voting for. Obama has kind eyes, and he’s tried. He’s about the people and America and not about the 3 percent of America that I’m a part of. Yeah, it might seem a little crazy, and I know I’m the one that’s probably going to be taxed, but if it’s going to make my country better, let’s do it.
