Mike Epps is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent. Mike returned this summer in season three of the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” produced LeBron James and Mike O’Malley. He won a 2016 NAACP Image award for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his portrayal as Uncle Julius. He recently co-starred opposite Bruce Willis in "Death Wish" playing Dr. Chris Salgado, a playboy doctor and close friend of Willis’ character Paul Kersey. In 2017, Mike will also began production on The Film “Pryor” starring opposite Oprah Winfrey, Eddie Murphy and Kate Hudson as the legendary comedian Richard Pryor. Written by Bill Condon, the film will bring to life the comedians ground breaking accomplishments to the stand up stage, TV and films. In 2011, he was awarded an NAACP Image Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role in the Sony Pictures film, “Jumping the Broom." He continued to receive critical praise for his dramatic turn in 2012 with "Sparkle," opposite Whitney Houston and Jordan Sparks. He further pursued his dramatic side with two important roles: starring opposite Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie in the Lionsgate thriller, "Repentance," followed by the independent Nina Simone biopic, “Nina,” starring Zoe Saldana. In “Nina,” he plays the legendary Richard Pryor, who opened for the singer in the early 60’s. In 2015 he produced and starred in the independent film “Meet the Blacks.” Since 2000, Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was recognized by a national audience in 1995 for appearing on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam (which, years later, he would go on to host). During a performance at LA’s Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to the first of three feature films they would do together: the cult hits “Next Friday,” "Friday after Next," and “All About the Benjamins.” Other features include the Hangover franchise, “Faster,” “Hancock,” “Lottery Ticket,” “Next Day Air,” “Roll Bounce,” “The Fighting Temptations”, the Resident Evil franchise, “Bait”, “How High,” “Dr.Dolittle 2”, "Talk to Me", and "Guess Who?"
