Wayans has recently starred in the Aretha Franklin biopic 'Respect' opposite Jennifer Hudson as Franklin.
In the film, Wayans portrayed Franklin’s first husband and manager, Ted White. In an interview with Shadow and Act, Wayans talked about portraying White in the film.
“I just thought to be able to play leading man and villain at the same time – romantic and dark, sexy and dangerous – [that’s] something no one would expect from me,” he said. “I have never showcased [or had the ability] to showcase that in anything that I’ve done, but maturity falls upon us all. All the stuff I’ve done in my past leads me to this moment and the stars just aligned.”
