  2. Thanks for the link! I'd been looking forward to seeing legendary Mr Lamont on here! WTF is Martin Lawrence doing though?

    1. Very happy to link to you. I figured that an in-person interview was pretty conclusive proof that he was actually an Academy member!

      I found Lawrence's name in an article about comedians in the Academy. I'm not a fan of his Big Momma series, so if I had to guess I'd say that the screen credits that he probably used for his membership application would have been his role in Do The Right Thing (the film got 2 Oscar noms which could translate into coattail memberships), and holding his own next to Will Smith in Bad Boys. Or possibly one of the comedies where he worked opposite Danny Devito or Tim Robbins?

      Delete
  3. Wow surely it couldn't just be for being in a film with 2 Oscar noms? Very strange. I don't even think he's particularly good at comedy. While I actually quite liked Bad Boys 2, that has very little to do with Lawrence! I reckon he's paying somebody!

    1. Well, he does have several executive producer titles. It's not always easy to tell which of those are for active involvement and which ones are for being an investor/owner.

      Still, he has been in enough films (and headlined most of them), that I'm not surprised to see him on the list.
