Musical career

The group started out as the “Hard Hitters”, but changed their name to Travis Porter in late 2008 to be more marketable.[16] Two of their biggest hits “Black Boy White Boy” and “All the Way Turnt Up” also turned out to be huge controversy in their career. “All the Way Turnt Up” caused controversy with Roscoe Dash. After Roscoe Dash came up with the song and asked Travis Porter to be featured on it Travis Porter added the song to their mix tape causing fans to believe it was not Roscoe Dash’s song, but Travis Porters’. Soon Roscoe Dash released another version of the song through his label Interscope Records featuring Soulja Boy. [17] The song “Black Boy White Boy” caused a bit of controversy with Young Dro because he and label-mate Yung L.A. say that the song title was initially theirs. [18]

Who is Orlando Jones? The entertainment world knows him as an American comedian and film and television actor. He is notable for being one of the original cast members of the sketch comedy series MADtv and for his role as the 7 Up spokesman from 1999-2002.

Early life

Jones was born April 10, 1968 in Mobile, Alabama. His father was a former professional baseball player for the Philadelphia Phillies. He moved to Mauldin, South Carolina, when he was a teen and graduated from Mauldin High School in 1985. One of his early acting experiences involved playing a werewolf in a haunted house to help raise money for the junior/senior prom. Jones enrolled in the College of Charleston, South Carolina. He left in 1990 without finishing his degree.

http://www.youtube.com/v/YW_-KeJH7sA?fs=1&hl=en_USTo pursue his interest in the entertainment industry, Jones, together with comedian Michael Fechter, formed a production company, Homeboy’s Productions and Advertising. Together Jones and Fechter worked on several projects including a McDonald’s commercial with basketball superstar Michael Jordan for the McDonald’s specialty sandwich the “McJordan”.http://www.youtube.com/v/b49TE4anGBQ?fs=1&hl=en_US
He scored his first Hollywood job in 1987, writing for the NBC comedy A Different Worldhttp://www.youtube.com/v/aZ3sYZAB5f4?fs=1&hl=en_US, on which he had a small guest role in the season five finale. During 1991-92, Jones penned the Fox series Roc and, in 1993, he co-produced The Sinbad Show.http://www.youtube.com/v/P_O_AmWWPdU?fs=1&hl=en_US He also made a brief appearance on the FOX sitcom Herman’s Head in 1992.http://www.youtube.com/v/H8tzXFagaso?fs=1&hl=en_US

Career

MADtv

After hosting Fox’s music series Sound FX, in 1994, Jones became one of the original nine cast members of MADtv. Unlike some of his fellow original repertory performers on MADtv, Jones came to the show with limited sketch comedy experience. However, his comedy writing and television producing skills proved to be valuable to the early success of the show.
Throughout Seasons One and Two of MADtv, Jones produced characters like the Cabana Chat band leader Dexter St. Croix and Reverend LaMont Nixon Fatback, the vocal follower of Louis Farrakhan. He was also noted for his impressions of Andre 3000, Bill Cosby, Dennis Rodman, O.J. Simpson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Snoop Dogg.http://www.youtube.com/v/YMIezMZXXBg?fs=1&hl=en_US
Characters

After two seasons on MADtv, Jones left the show at the end of its second season to pursue a movie career. However, Jones returned to MADtv in 2004 to celebrate its 200th episode. Jones appeared in the opening video “Hey MAD!” where he lampooned Andre 3000. With his guest appearance, Jones became the third (out of five) original cast member to return as a guest on the show. The other original cast members who have returned are Nicole Sullivan, Phil LaMarr, Artie Lange, and Debra Wilson.

During his time at MADtv, he roomed with Artie Lange, now a co-host on The Howard Stern Show. Orlando wouldn’t allow Artie into the apartment if Artie had cocaine on his person. He was, however, according to Artie, very supportive and influential in helping to save Artie’s life. Nicole Sullivan and David Herman of MADtv were also involved in the intervention (informing police and the show of his cocaine problem) of Artie Lange. This information was revealed on the June 12, 2006 episode of The Howard Stern Show on Sirius Satellite Radio by Artie Lange. Christa Miller, of The Drew Carey Show, was a roommate of Nicole Sullivan’s at the time. Her appearance on The Howard Stern Show prompted Artie to reveal this information.
On July 28, 2008, Steve Langford of Howard 100 News reported that during the taping of the MADTV famous Babe Watch skit, Orlando claimed that when he awoke one morning, there was a horrible stench in the room and Artie was missing. Orlando said the bed was loaded with excrement. When house keeping came to clean the room he grabbed his stuff and jumped out the window to avoid being blamed. Artie Lange did confirm the incident.

Other television projects

Aside from MADtv, Jones made many other television appearances. Perhaps his most popular and enduring television appearance was not in the form of a sitcom or television drama, but rather in a series of humorous commercials for a soda company. In 2000, Jones became the spokesperson for 7 Up and he gained wide recognition.http://www.youtube.com/v/vh3p5jFUUW8?fs=1&hl=en_USThis exposure led to a plethora of opportunities for Jones. First, he hosted an HBO First Look special in 2000 and then, in 2003, Jones was given his own late night talk show on FX called The Orlando Jones Show.http://www.youtube.com/v/cQtkJAhSJq0?fs=1&hl=en_US Although his talk show was short lived, Jones continued to make additional television appearances. In 2003, he appeared on the The Bernie Mac Show http://www.youtube.com/v/qS2h4GM_FVE?fs=1&hl=en_USand on Girlfriends.http://www.youtube.com/v/QByPRtSE1IY?fs=1&hl=en_US In 2006, Jones decided to return to television as one of the lead characters of ABC’s crime drama The Evidence, as Cayman Bishop.http://www.youtube.com/v/j2uo9heWvXA?fs=1&hl=en_US He has also appeared in 2 episodes of Everybody Hates Chris, the first in 2007 as Chris’s substitute teacher and the second in 2008 as Clint Huckstable, an allusion to the character Cliff Huxtable played by Bill Cosby on The Cosby Show.http://www.youtube.com/v/mArinx1sqqQ?fs=1&hl=en_US
In 2008, he appeared as Harold Wilcox, a violent veteran with PTSD, on New Amsterdam.
In the first season of the show, Jones also starred on Nick Cannon‘s Wild ‘N Out. Jones was the first guest star on the show.
Jones is currently the co-host of ABC‘s Crash Course.
On November 16, 2009, it was announced that Orlando has been cast as Foreman’s brother on House, TVGuide.com has confirmed. He will play Marcus, Foreman’s incarcerated brother. In an already shot episode that is slated to air in February, the brothers will reunite just before Marcus’ parole hearing.

Film project

After leaving MADtv, Jones expanded his cinema resume. He appeared in a bit part in his first big screen film, In Harm’s Way (1997), Jones then joined Larry David in the feature Sour Grapes (1998), playing the character of an itinerant man. Subsequently, he appeared in Woo (1998), Mike Judge‘s first film Office Space (1999), alongside fellow MADtv alumnus David Herman, and in Barry Levinson’s praised drama, Liberty Heights (1999). Since then, Jones has appeared in Magnolia (1999), New Jersey Turnpikes (1999) and in Harold RamisBedazzled (2000).
During the 2000s, Jones’ career began to branch out. In addition to his witty appearances in the 7-Up campaigns, Jones played the role of Clifford Franklin in The Replacements (2000) and he appeared in the comedy Chain of Fools (2000) and the horror film From Dusk till Dawn 3: The Hangman’s Daughter (2000). In 2001, Jones landed the role of Daryl Chase in the action-comedy Double Take (2001) alongside Eddie Griffin and worked with David Duchovny and Julianne Moore in Ivan Reitman‘s sci-fi comedy, Evolution (2001). Jones was also in the 2002 film Drumline alongside Nick Cannon and Zoe Saldana and he appeared as the computer Vox in The Time Machine (2002). His other more recent films includes Biker Boyz (2003), Runaway Jury (2003) and House of D (2004). Jones recently had a cameo in the Chris Rock Film I Think I Love My Wife (2007).

Voice acting

Jones has been featured in many voice acting projects over the years. In 1993, Jones appeared in Yuletide in the ‘hood and in 1998, he made a guest appearance in the animated comedy TV Series, King of the Hill.http://www.youtube.com/v/vha4Q58dxtU?fs=1&hl=en_US More recently, he lent his voice to the TV series Father of the Pridehttp://www.youtube.com/v/oh4HDFIrF-E?fs=1&hl=en_US and the video games Halo 2 http://www.youtube.com/v/K_y3cbIV-Xg?fs=1&hl=en_USas the marine Sergeant Banks as well as other black marines and L.A.

Famous Women that were men

I have found several woman who’s characters performances were exceptional, except they were men. The ability to become a woman one minute and then a man the next made me say “WOW”. As I think back one of the first men to dress as a woman and make it socially acceptable would be Flip Wilson, he came up with a character called Geraldine. Who knew that she would become one of his most popular characters and make the man very rich?

Then came Dustin Hoffman has “Tootsie” He had a bright ideal that if he could not get a job as a man he would do it as a woman… Is it me or did he make a cute woman? As a matter of fact he even won a Oscar for his performance!

Robin Williams made “Mrs Doubt Fire” believable, so much, to the fact that you wondered, how did he do that?

In Living Color was funny but when Jamie Fox came up with Wanda and her class statement “I’ll rock your world” Wanda put the show on the map. Plus it was the start to Jaime Fox taking the world by storm.

Then came Martin Lawrence and his character “Sha Nay Nay”, her straight out of the Ghetto made attitude me “MARTIN” an instant hit!

Martin Lawrence as “Big Mama” was so big, that they had to make a sequel… Most men love to take women’s dresses off, but Lawrence has made his millions by putting them on!

Then came the genius of Tyler Perry, the day that he came up with “Madea” was the day that he became a billionaire. His ability to bring the wisdom of the old and inject it into your soul of the youth today has pushed him to a level high in the stratosphere of respect among his peers.

Now I love Ving Rhames performance as “Holiday” but no matter how I tried to see him as gay, I just could not grasp the ideal! Because of his previous roles as a mans man, but if you must see a movie check “Holidays Heart”, there will not be a dry eye in the house.

Who is Willard Christopher Smith?

Who is Willard Christopher Smith, Jr.? [1] The entertainment world knows him as “Will”Smith. Smith is an American actor, film producer and rapper. He has enjoyed success in music, television and film. In April 2007, Newsweek called him the most powerful actor on the planet.[2] Smith has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, and has won multiple Grammy Awards.

In the late 1980s, Smith achieved modest fame as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince. In 1990, his celebrity increased dramatically when he starred in the popular television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The show ran for nearly six years (1990–1996) on NBC and has been syndicated consistently on various networks since then. In the mid-1990s, Smith transitioned from television to film, and ultimately starred in numerous blockbuster films that received broad box office success. In fact, he is the only actor in history to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the domestic box office as well as being the only actor to have eight consecutive films in which he starred open at the #1 spot in the domestic box office tally.[3] Fourteen of the 19 fiction films he has acted in have accumulated a worldwide grosses of over $100 million, and 4 of them took in over $500 million in global box office receipts. His most financially successful films have been Bad Boys, Bad Boys II, Independence Day, Men in Black, Men in Black II, I, Robot, The Pursuit of Happyness, I Am Legend, Hancock, Wild Wild West, Enemy of the State, Shark Tale, Hitch and Seven Pounds. He also earned critical praise for his performances in Six Degrees of Separation, Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness, receiving Best Actor Oscar nominations for the latter two.

Smith was born September 25, 1968 and raised in West Philadelphia and Germantown in Northwest Philadelphia. His mother, Caroline (née Bright), was a school administrator who worked for the Philadelphia school board, and his father, Willard Christopher Smith, Sr., was a refrigeration engineer.[4][5] He was raised Baptist.[6] His parents separated when he was 13 and divorced when he was 32.[7] Smith’s charming and sly demeanor in school resulted in the nickname “Prince”, which eventually turned into the “Fresh Prince”. While still in his teens, Smith began rapping and eventually began collaborating with Jeff Townes (a.k.a. DJ Jazzy Jeff), whom he met at a party. He attended Overbrook High School in West Philadelphia. DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince was born with Smith handling the rhymes and Townes overseeing the mastery of mixing and scratching — the combination was a pop and hip-hop hit during the 1980s and early 1990s.

While it is widely reported that Smith turned down a scholarship to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he never applied to MIT,[8] although he was admitted to a “pre-engineering program” there.[9] According to Smith, “My mother, who worked for the School Board of Philadelphia, had a friend who was the admissions officer at MIT. I had pretty high SAT scores and they needed black kids, so I probably could have gotten in. But I had no intention of going to college.”[10]

Smith started as the MC of the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, with his childhood friend Jeffrey “DJ Jazzy Jeff” Townes as turntablist and producer as well as Ready Rock C (Clarence Holmes) as the human beat box. The trio was known for performing humorous, radio-friendly songs, most notably “Parents Just Don’t Understandand “Summertime.” They gained critical acclaim for winning the first ever Grammy in the Rap category (1988). He had a line in “Voices That Care“, a 1991 Gulf War song by a celebrity group. Smith spent money freely during his early career and underpaid his income taxes. The Internal Revenue Service eventually assessed a $2.8 million tax debt against Smith, took many of his possessions, and garnished his income.[11]

Smith was nearly bankrupt in 1990 when the NBC television network signed him to a contract and built a sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, around him. The show was successful and launched his acting career. Smith set himself the goal of becoming “‘the biggest movie star in the world’,” studying box office successes’ common characteristics.[7] Although he made a notable dramatic film debut in Six Degrees of Separation while still appearing in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Smith’s film career took off with his role in the buddy cop film Bad Boys (1995) along with co-star Martin Lawrence.

After The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ended May 20, 1996, Smith began a successful solo music career while simultaneously starring in a series of films. The first two films were hugely successful summer blockbusters: Independence Day (1996), in which he played a fearless and confident fighter pilot, and Men in Black (1997), where he played the comic and confident Agent J against Tommy Lee Jones‘ deadpan Agent K. Smith’s acting in Men in Black won critical praise. He originally rejected the lead role in Men in Black, but wife Jada Pinkett Smith coaxed him into acceptance. The two films established Smith’s commercial reputation as a bankable star whose appeal across age, race, and gender lines could “open” a film at the box office, a reputation Smith would begin to term a “Big Willie Weekend”. In 1998 he starred with Gene Hackman in Enemy of the State. Smith turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix in favor of Wild Wild West. Despite the failure of Wild Wild West, Smith has said that he harbors no regrets about his decision, asserting that Keanu Reeves‘s performance as Neo was superior to what Smith would have achieved.[12] Smith then went on to gain leading roles in several box office successes including Men in Black II, Bad Boys II, Hitch, and I, Robot.

Smith also released a string of hit singles, often associated with his most recent film, throughout the late 1990s. The most notable of these were his #1 hit theme song “Men in Black“, the #1 hit “Gettin’ Jiggy wit It” (which made jiggy a catch phrase for a while in 1998), and a cover of “Just the Two of Us“, an affectionate message to his young son. His first two solo albums, Big Willie Style (1997) and Willennium (1999), went multi-platinum.

Smith was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, for the film Ali, 2001, for his portrayal of the boxer Muhammad Ali, formerly known as Cassius Clay, in the biopic. He was again nominated for Best Actor Oscar for his role in another true-life movie, The Pursuit of Happyness, where he played Chris Gardner in his rags-to-riches story.

Smith’s third album on Columbia Records, Born to Reign released in 2002, was a sales disappointment compared to his past efforts, and after a quick Greatest Hits release that was almost not advertised at all, he was dropped by the label. He later signed a recording contract with Interscope Records. A year later, Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith created the UPN (later CW) sitcom All of Us, which was loosely based on their lives. The show debuted on UPN in September 2003, and aired there for three seasons before moving to The CW in October 2006, for one more season. The CW cancelled All of Us in May 2007. Smith appeared as himself in Jersey Girl delivering the Silent Bob speech that appears in nearly all Kevin Smith movies. The lead character’s situation is due to the claim, “Will Smith is just a rapper.”

In 2005, Smith was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for attending a record breaking three premieres in a 24-hour time span.[13] On July 2, 2005, Smith served as host for the Live 8 concert in his native Philadelphia in front of an enormous crowd, and later performed a set with DJ Jazzy Jeff. During this time, Smith released his fourth studio album, the successful Lost & Found. The album was propelled solely on the smash hit single, “Switch”, which appealed to the mainstream. The single stayed atop the charts for months and returned Smith to the forefront of hip-hop. Smith appeared at Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice awards in 2005 performing “Switch”, as well as the BET awards in 2005. He appeared in the second game of the NBA Finals (San Antonio vs. Detroit) performing “Switch” to promote the album. Smith also made a special appearance in the reality talent contest show “Indian Idol“, when he visited India.

He has planned to star in a feature film remake of the television series It Takes a Thief.[14]

On December 10, 2007, Smith was recognized at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Smith left an imprint of his hands and feet outside the world renowned theater in front of many fans.[15] Later that month, Smith starred in the film I Am Legend, released December 14, 2007. Despite marginally positive reviews,[16] its opening was the largest ever for a film released in the United States during December. Smith himself has said that he considers the film to be “aggressively unique”.[17] A reviewer said that the film’s commercial success “cemented [Smith’s] standing as the number one box office draw in Hollywood.”[18] On December 1, 2008, TV Guide reported that Smith has been selected as one of America’s top ten most fascinating people of 2008 for a Barbara Walters ABC special that aired on December 4, 2008.[19]

Smith is currently developing a film entitled The Last Pharaoh, in which he will star as Taharqa.[20]

President Barack Obama has stated that if a film were to ever be made about his life, he would have Smith play his part, because “he has the ears”. Obama stated that the two have discussed a possibility of a film based on the 2008 election, but this may not happen until the end of the Obama presidency.[21]

Smith was raised by his parents, Willard and Caroline, in West Philadelphia. Smith credits his father’s dedication when discussing his own involvement in the lives of his three children: “I look at my father and how he was able to keep four kids fed and clothed and still managed to find time to spend with us.”[22] Smith married Sheree Zampino in 1992.
They had a son, Willard Christopher Smith III, also known as “Trey”, but divorced in 1995. Trey appeared in his father’s music video for the 1998 single “Just The Two Of Us”. Smith married actress Jada Pinkett in 1997. Together they have had two children: Jaden Christopher Syre (born 1998), his co-star in The Pursuit of Happyness, and Willow Camille Reign, who appeared as his daughter in “I Am Legend” (born 2000). Along with his brother, Harry Smith, he owns Treyball Development Inc.,[23] a Beverly Hills-based company named after his first son.

Smith has been consistently listed in Fortune Magazine‘s “Richest 40” list of the forty wealthiest Americans under the age of 40. Smith and his family reside on Star Island in Miami Beach, Florida and in Los Angeles, Stockholm, Sweden[24] and Philadelphia. Smith donated $4,600 to the presidential campaign of Democrat Barack Obama.[25]

Smith has said he has studied multiple religions, including Scientology, and he has said many complimentary things about Scientology and other faiths. Despite his praise of Scientology, Smith said “I just think a lot of the ideas in Scientology are brilliant and revolutionary and non-religious”[26][27] and “Ninety-eight percent of the principles in Scientology are identical to the principles of the Bible…. I don’t think that because the word someone uses for spirit is ‘thetan‘ that the definition becomes any different.”[28] He has denied having joined the Church of Scientology, saying “I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions, and I respect all people and all paths.”[29] After his wife Jada made the film Collateral with Cruise in 2004, the couple donated USD$20,000 to Scientology’s literacy campaign, called HELP, the Hollywood Education and Literacy Program, which is the basis for Scientology’s homeschooling system.[30]

Who is Broderick Steven Harvey?

Broderick Steven “Steve” Harvey is an American comedian, actor, entertainer, and radio personality. [1][2] He is probably best known as the star of the WB sitcom The Steve Harvey Show, and as one of the four comedians featured in the Spike Lee film The Original Kings of Comedy. Currently, he is the host of The Steve Harvey Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio program. He is also the author of Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment, which was released in March 2009.

Harvey was born on January 17, 1957(1957-01-17) in Welch, West Virginia and was the son of Eloise and Jesse Harvey, a coal miner.[3] He moved to Cleveland, Ohio and graduated from Glenville High School in 1974. He has held jobs as both an insurance salesman and a boxer.

He began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s, and was a finalist in Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search in 1989, eventually leading to a long stint as host of It’s Showtime at the Apollo, succeeding Mark Curry in that role. His success as a stand-up comedian led to a starring role on the ABC show, Me and the Boys in 1994. He would later star on the WB network show, The Steve Harvey Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. While wildly popular in the African-American community (the show won multiple NAACP Image Awards), the show never achieved critical acclaim outside of the African-American community, a matter about which Harvey has often complained.

In 1997, Harvey continued his work in stand-up comedy, touring as one of the Kings of Comedy, along with Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and Bernie Mac. The comedy act would later be put together into a film by Spike Lee called The Original Kings of Comedy. http://www.metacafe.com/fplayer/yt-hu3jGXCKeRU/steve_harvey_kings_of_comedy.swf

Harvey is the host of his own morning radio show, The Steve Harvey Morning Show, which was originally syndicated under Radio One, Inc. broadcasting company, from September 2000 until May 2005.

The show is based out of WBLS, in New York.
