Wayans told the LA Times:
“Look, I want to be able to make the stupidest movies ever, because they make people laugh and they make money,” Wayans recently said with a smirk. “But that’s not all I want to do. And I think I’ve proven to some people — the ones paying attention — that I can do more. Everybody else, well, they can wait and see and make up their mind.”
Richard Pryor died In 2005, at 65 after a heart attack and a battle with multiple sclerosis.
