About Mike Epps

Mike Epps has generated an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers and within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest comic actors to emerge on the Hollywood scene of late.

Mike Epps has generated an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers and within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest comic actors to emerge on the Hollywood scene of late.

For Epps, 2008 proved to be an impressive year. In February he appeared in the ensemble comedy "Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins," opposite Martin Lawrence, James Earl Jones and Joy Bryant. In April 2008 Epps appeared in the indie film "The Grand," directed by Zak Penn and starring Woody Harrelson and Cheryl Hines. He can also be seen in the following 2008 releases: MGM's "Soul Men," starring Samuel L. Jackson, Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes; Sony Pictures' "Hancock," starring Will Smith and Charlize Theron; and "Open Season 2," in which he lends his voice.

When Epps isn't filming, he is touring the country and performing his comedy act to sold-out theaters and arenas. In 2007 his one-hour comedy special, "Inappropriate Behavior," aired on HBO and was one of the network's top-rated one-hour specials of the year, and was followed by a DVD release that same month. Later that fall, Epps transitioned from his HBO comedy special to his duties as the new host of HBO's "Def Comedy Jam."

In 2007, Epps reprised his role as 'LJ' in Sony's futuristic action franchise, "Resident Evil: Extinction," which placed number one at the box office for two consecutive weeks. Epps also had a small but dramatic role alongside Don Cheadle in Focus Features' "Talk to Me."

Since 2000, Epps' comedic film roles have exploded. In March 2002 Epps was seen starring opposite Ice Cube in New Line Cinema's "All About the Benjamins." Epps also reprised his role as Day-Day in "Friday After Next," the third installment of the "Friday" series. In 2003, Epps appeared in the Paramount comedy "The Fighting Temptations" alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyonce Knowles, and in 2004 he was in Sony Pictures' blockbuster sequel "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" starring Milla Jovovich.

In September of '05, Epps played the comedic relief as a loud mouthed garbage man in Fox Searchlight's "Roll Bounce," a film set in the late 1970s about the roller skating lifestyle that also starred Bow Wow, Chi McBride and Nick Cannon. Epps went on to play a pivotal role in the romantic comedy "Something New," starring Sanaa Lathan as a black career woman who unexpectedly finds love with a white working-class man, played by Simon Baker. Earlier that same year, Epps starred in two classic remakes -- first, Epps was seen in Columbia Pictures' well received "Guess Who," starring Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac. He then starred in Paramount Picture's remake of "The Honeymooners," in which he played comedic legend Ed Norton, alongside Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden.

A native of Indiana who has steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks for the last seven years, Epps' comedic talent was recognized by a national audience in 1995 when he appeared on the "Def Comedy Jam" tour and appeared on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam" broadcasts. Epps moved to Los Angeles after his successful performance at the 1999 Laffapalooza festival in Atlanta. During his performance at LA's Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to Epps being cast in the co-starring role of Day-Day in his feature film debut, 2000's hit comedy "Next Friday." Epps has also appeared in "Bait" with Jamie Foxx, "How High" with Method Man and Redman and was the voice of Sonny in "Dr. Dolittle 2."

Epps currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
