Shawn will next be seen on the big screen in “Dance Flick,” the new comedy co-written with brothers Marlon and Keenen Ivory, premiering in February 2009.

Shawn’s past film credits include the hit comedy “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in The Hood,” which he co- wrote, executive produced and starred in with brother Marlon Wayans.
