With a new project on the horizon, multi-hyphenated talent Marlon Wayans is asking his female fans to weigh in on his look. Considering a bearded look or dapper smooth face for his next role, the comedian took to social to poll his followers.
Posting two photos — one of himself suited and rocking a clean-shaven face, and the other also suited but with a low-cut beard — the 47-year-old asked: Beard or no beard?
A glance at the comments, and it’s obvious some fans were unable to choose a look, but were certain either one maintained his swoon-worthy appeal.
“Sexy either way.. But when you don’t have the bread u do look younger. 😍😍”
“You zaddish with both BUT I say beard as well!! 😍”
“I like the beard but no beard is good too!”
“With or without. Both are sexy” and “Either way… suit from first pic tho ✊🏽😀,” wrote commenters on IG.
Even some of Wayans’ industry peers chimed in, but only to poke fun at him and the misspelled word in his caption: “LADIES! Trying to figure out my loom for my next movie.”
“I was like…whats a loom thinking it was like movie talk lol I got it it’s looks lol”
“Fruit of the loom 🍇”
“Either loom is good,” wrote former “106th & Park” host Terrance J.
“Went from Hey Boo to GQ”
While the comedian did not divulge any details on what his next project is about, it didn’t stop people from dropping their requests.
“U need to do a biopic on your amazing family”
“What about a haunted house 3?”
“Beard+suit and maybe +White Chicks sequel?👀”
In October 2020, Wayans again tested out his dramatic acting chops in “On the Rocks.” In the film he plays a husband suspected of carrying on an affair.
“At this point in my career, I want to work with great directors so I could put my greatest performance in the best material and see where that takes me,” said Wayans of the role to Awards Daily.
“When I read the script, I saw the character and thought it’d be nice to play a good guy. I love the fact that he, at the end of the day, was a good guy and a good man. That’s something that women need to see.”
As for what he’s been up to recently, it’s putting a smile on the faces of audiences who look to him for comedic relief.
“I think right now we all need to laugh, especially myself. When I’m on stage myself I just have a great time,” Wayans explained while speaking with FOX4 in Kansas ahead of his sold out stand-up shows on Jan. 15.
