London Brown (‘Marvin’) Knows What’s Next on ‘Raising Kanan’ | EURexclusiveWATCH

An intimate conversation with the actor/comic on life, dating secrets and more

*In a candid conversation with radio/TV personality Jazmyn Summers for EURweb, actor/comic London Brown, who plays Marvin in the hit series “Power III Raising Kanan,” delves into his journey, dating life, and his role on the hit STARZ drama.

ARE YOU CUFFED UP OR SINGLE?
Everyone always asks if I’m single. It’s 2024, what guy you know walking around with nobody? It’s not happening. Every guy got somebody. I got a woman in my life. That’s my mother and I love her to death.  When it comes to certain things, you got to have a little privacy to what you do but just to be clear, I’m not in these streets.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A WOMAN?
Attractive qualities are women who are not quiet, but they read as quiet meaning, just not that loud energy.  Not someone where everywhere we go she gotta make a  scene. She wants to do selfies in the middle of everything.  I’ll be doing an interview and she be off to the side doing selfies.

BBL OR REAL?
As long as It looks like yours, it’s ok with me.  The issue for guys is when it gets out of control. That’s why, generally speaking, most guys are going to want natural.  I think that women started going too far. It’s to the point where it’s not even about trying to impress the man they just trying to compete against the other women.

AND HOW OFTEN DO YOU PREFER MAKING LOVE WITH YOUR LADY?
It depends because with what I do, it takes a lot of focus and concentration, so let me rest if you want what you want from me.  If she can let me rest when I get up, you gonna have a good time. Or let’s say if time is limited then I don’t want to go to sleep.  If time is short, I don’t need a massage if she’s trying to get some. Because if I don’t sleep, you giving me a massage will put me totally out.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE YOUR BOO TO WEAR ON THOSE SPECIAL OCCASIONS?
Guys are visual.  Victoria’s Secret is cool for other women and girlfriends and sleepovers, but I want you to look like a slut.   Like I paid for you.  I want to fully appreciate the things about a woman that make her the opposite of me and whatever she can do to emphasize that is always good.

CAN THE LADIES SLIDE IN YOUR DMs?
Nah, stay out of there in the name of Jesus. Stay out of there.

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SHOW.  THE SEASON THREE FINALE PREMIERS TONIGHT/THIS WEEKEND. IS MARVIN GOING THROUGH A TRANSFORMATION? WE’RE SEEING HIS TENDER SIDE EVEN THOUGH HE’S A COLD KILLER. 
When you look at Marvin, one minute you feel empathy, you feel bad for him. But then you’re mad at him and you see his revengeful side. I liken him to Tupac. You don’t think just gangster rapper. You think of somebody that’s down for his people, somebody who respects women or cares about his mother. It’s the same thing when it comes to Marvin. You can’t just put Marvin in one box. There’s a lot of layers to him

WHAT’S UP WITH THE GROWING TENSION BETWEEN  MARVIN AND HIS SISTER RAQUEL?  WITH HER SON BEING HER BIGGEST RIVAL, MARVIN IS FACING SOME TOUGH LOYALTY CHOICES. 
At one point, Marvin was calling the shots. His sister took over, so he’s still not quite comfortable being under the thumb of his sister.  Marvin’s trying to figure out how to navigate that and make his own moves. I think you’ll see more of that in season four.  Remember, in season one, Marvin was kind of reckless. In season two, he went through anger management, trying to fight his demons. In season three, he’s trying to take what he’s gotten from anger management and apply it.  He’s trying to be a better person and be a father to his daughter.   It’s going to be interesting for the audience to see if Marvin sticks to that or if there is a change of any sort.

WE DON’T SEE A LOT OF ROMANCE WITH MARVIN IN THIS SEASON.  WILL THAT CHANGE?
Some of the crew been sayin’ that too.   Marvin’s so busy trying to get through life and trying to navigate really with his daughter. Everything else is not such a priority because being a father to his daughter is everything right now.

YOU ARE SHOOTING SEASON FOUR NOW. EVERYONE WAS SURPRISED WHEN UNIQUE (JOEY BADASS) WAS KILLED  IN SEASON 3. WILL MARVIN BE AROUND IN S4?
We don’t really know for sure because we shoot out of order. We don’t know the layout of the story like that. They’re always making changes when they edit.  (Regarding Unique,) I didn’t have any scenes with him so I found out he got killed off because the fans of the show sent video. But (as far as Marvin is concerned), I’m shooting season four now and trying to remain as interesting as I can be to still be around. I want to be in the building.

DO YOU RUN INTO 50 CENT MUCH?
We have connected a few times. He’s cool. He’s a smart dude. I think people get caught up when they see him trolling people.  But he’s not being funny on the ground.  He’s calculated.

YOU WORKED WITH DWYANE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON ON BALLERS.  WHAT’S HE LIKE TO WORK WITH?
He’s just always so cool. I’ve never really seen him relax.  He’s always photo-ready and can you believe he sneezes with his eyes open? Do you know how hard it is to sneeze with your eyes open? He almost fainted one time.  I’m like ‘close your eyes.’  He’s very disciplined and focused. One day we had an early call and I got up to get some water at about 3 or 4am and I see him in the gym., I said I got to start getting up and make that part of my routine. So now I hit the gym before I  get to set. You never know what kind of scene you’re gonna have. Say you have a sex scene, you wanna be ready.

I SEE YOU WEARING A RED HAT AND RED SOCKS.  YOU JUST STARTED WEARING RED. WHY?
I didn’t start wearing red until I was over 22.  When you grow up in the hood, you got to be mindful of those kinds of things and you just learn how to survive and get through.  I grew up in the Crips neighborhood. I stayed next door to some, five houses down to another set around the corner, and walking to school there were several hoods I had to get thru.  I was funny so  I got past  by making them laugh. They were cool with me. Again, I wasn’t a guy trying to be something I wasn’t.  Bein’ in the game wasn’t what I was on.  I survived through my grandmother. She’s like, God, just keep him so busy he don’t get caught up in the streets. And I’ve been busy ever since.  I was doing the church play, the school, play all kinds of stuff.  I owe my survival to her and my mom.

YOU’RE ALSO A COMIC. WHAT INSPIRED YOUR HILARIOUS BIT ON STYLE?
I was working on material in the room (comedy club) and there would be a bunch of white guys and one of the compliments I was always getting was. ‘Man bro, like you’re always freaking cool.’  Throwing their hair back “I like your style, bro”., I told them, for Black people style is really something that we’re very conscious about. We can’t just leave the house lookin’ any ol kind of way. White people sometimes look like they got dressed in the dark.

 WHAT’S NEXT FOR LONDON?
I’m really getting on the comedy scene in New York which is exciting.

Catch the full interview above.  There’s a few surprises in it you won’t see coming.
