Netflix & Chuckle With Marlon Wayans in ‘Sextuplets’ (Watch)

*Netflix and chuckle!

This week, Marlon Wayans latest comedy “Sextuplets” co-starring Bresha Webb drops. The comedic duo talked with EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas about spin-offs, thugs and kitchens.

FT: Which sibling would most likely have their own spin-off?

MW: Dawn! No one wants to see a movie with Ethan he looks weird. Or [maybe] Russell would get one.

FT: Dawn has a “Love & Hip Hop” and “Bad Girls Club” energy, who were you thinking of while playing her?

MW: I threw two of my sisters together and created Dawn.

FT: Your character spends most of her time with Ethan – whose reminiscent of a Morris Day type of guy – if a guy had an Ethan vibe would that be a dating deal-breaker?

BW: I wouldn’t give him Morris Day. I would give him the uncle on Easter Sunday cat daddy that hugs you a little too tight and says, ‘you getting so big baby girl!’ That’s not a deal-breaker with me because if you dress like Ethan you got that swag, you know what you’re doing! Ethan is dope! He’s always trying to manipulate a situation or has a scheme going but at the end of the day he has the biggest heart that’s why I love a thug!

FT: You love a thug? What level of thug?

BW: I want a thug I can take around. He can’t be like, ‘who we shooting today?’

FT: There’s a lot of giving in the film – kidneys and bail money – you’re successful and in a different tax bracket now…has your family started to ask you to buy things? Have you ever had to say, ‘I don’t think I can do that right now?’

BW: Absolutely! My parents are senior citizens – they hate when I say that but they’re over 65 – and they ask me for stuff all of the time. I love it because I’m happy to do it. ‘But a new kitchen mom and a new couch and a new car?!’ See, I went too far and bought my dad a car for his birthday so now my mom is like, ‘where’s my car? Not yet Shay! Let me get some more coins!’
