Other movie credits to Epps’ name include “The Fighting Temptations,” “Roll Bounce,” “Something New,” “Guess Who” and blockbuster sequel “Resident Evil: Apocalypse,” as well as roles in such films as “Bait,” “How High” and the voice of Sonny in “Dr. Dolittle 2.” He also starred in Paramount Picture’s remake of “The Honeymooners,” appeared in “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins” and “Hancock,” and made a hilarious cameo in the mega-hit, “The Hangover.”
Epps hosted both the 2009 and 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards to rave reviews. In 2010, he also starred in a standup special “Mike Epps: Under-rated and Never Faded” on Comedy Central and Showtime, and released his first comedy rap album, “Funny Bidness: Da Album,” and his DVD “Funny Bidness.” During a performance at LA’s Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube, leading to him being cast in the co-starring role of all three installments of the “Friday” series, and from there it was history.
