In Living Color: Where Is the Cast Now?
From Jennifer Lopez to Jamie Foxx, see where the cast of In Living Color is more than three decades after the show's premiere
In Living Color premiered 31 years ago on April 15, 1990. On top of being ahead of its time, the sketch comedy show was home to plenty of recognizable faces and even a few future A-listers! Click through to see what they're all up to.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
The eldest of the Wayans brothers, Keenen created the show with his brother Damon and, by proxy, a comedic vehicle for some pretty well-known A-listers!
Since the show — which Keenen took home an Emmy for in 1990 — he has been successful both behind the camera as a writer and director, was a talk show host for a short time and was a judge on Last Comic Standing in 2014.
Along with his brothers, Damon managed to create some particularly hilarious and memorable sketches and characters on In Living Color, like Homey the Clown and the Head Detective.
The comedian has continued to make audiences laugh, whether it be while doing stand-up comedy or on shows like My Wife and Kids (2001 to 2005). Most recently, he starred in the series Lethal Weapon as Roger Murtaugh, from 2016 to 2019.
Since appearing alongside his family on In Living Color for the first four seasons, Shawn has continued to collaborate with his famously funny family. He acted alongside his brother Marlon in the TV series The Wayans Bros. from 1995 to 1999, and has starred in movies like Scary Movie 2 and White Chicks.
Marlon Wayans also appeared on the show, and has continued to flex his comedy skills since. Often working alongside his brother, Shawn, Marlon went on to star in The Wayans Bros. and Waynehead as well as in White Chicks, Norbit and even in his aptly titled sitcom, Marlon.
The whole Wayans family (well, not all of them, but close!) got in on the action with In Living Color. Kim was a skilled in impressions as well as original characters.
Since her time on the show, she has continued to act, recently guest-starring on Boomerang, and is an author of a children's book series, Amy Hodgepodge.
Before she became the superstar we know and love, the multi-talented Lopez was a Fly Girl on the show from 1991 to 1993.
She followed up her time on In Living Color by starring as Selena Quintanilla in the 1997 biopic about her life, catapulting her into the limelight. Lopez continues to perform, most recently appearing at Joe Biden's 2021 inauguration. She has also starred in movies like Maid in Manhattan, Monster-in-Law and Hustlers, and TV shows like Shades of Blue. Lopez has even earned two Golden Globe nominations over the course of her career thus far.
David Alan Grier
An original cast member on In Living Color, Grier's most recent credits include acting alongside former costar Jamie Foxx in the series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!, The Resident, A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Cool Kids.

Since, Carrey has starred in movies like Dumb & Dumber, Bruce Almighty and The Mask, and has earned Golden Globe nominations for his work on The Truman Show and Man on the Moon.
Most recently, Carrey appeared in the Showtime series Kidding and in the 2020 live-action Sonic the Hedgehog. He also made a few appearances on Saturday Night Live in 2020, portraying now-President Joe Biden.
Another A-Lister to parlay his career on In Living Color into a successful career, Foxx won an Academy Award and Golden Globe in 2005 for his performance as Ray Charles in Ray, and has been nominated for nine Grammys in his career, taking home two.
Today, he hosts Beat Shazam, and most recently starred in the Netflix series, Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!, which is based off of some of the real-life scenarios that his daughter, Corinne Foxx, wrote in her diary. His In Living Color costar, David Alan Grier, plays his father on the show!

Not to worry, she went on to find success on shows like Living Single, The Geena Davis Show, One on One and more. Her most recent film credit is from 2019's Love Is Not Enough.
