A Haunted House 2

Posted: Updated:

If you're a screamer, then you'll love the new movie "A Haunted House 2." How'd you know I was a screamer? The movie is the sequel to the über-funny "A Haunted House." That means Marlon Wayans is back and scarier than ever. I caught up with the handsome man today at the W on South Beach to talk about all things funny. Seriously.

If you wanna laugh till you cry, "Haunted House 2" is a movie Marlon Wayans doesn't want you to miss.

Shireen: "When did you first know you were funny?"

Marlon Wayans: "I think when I kept getting kicked out of class. I was either funny or just really dumb. I was shy in pre-kinder. Then in kindergarten, after I had my first fight, I just kind of opened up and I was just silly, and that's what I've been doing."

The sequel, written by Marlon, pokes fun at scary movies like "Insidious," "The Conjuring" and "Sinister," to name a few.

This time around, Marlon's character Malcolm starts fresh with a new girlfriend, her two kids and their dream home.

Shireen: "When you are in Miami, is there anything you must see and must do?"

Marlon Wayans: "I must drink whatever and I must party wherever. I'm not big on the sun thing. Everyone is like, 'I gotta go to the beach,' and I'm like, 'I'm black enough.' I go to the beach and it makes my feet dryer. I go to the beach and it makes me look like I got '12 Years a Slave' feet."

I've been interviewing Marlon for years, and he's the real deal

Shireen: "They say comedians, for the most part, they can be very morose, or they're sad on the inside."

Marlon Wayans: "Yeah."

Shireen: "But you really don't seem like that type of comedian."

Marlon Wayans: "Agreeing."

Shireen: "What do you attribute that to? Something in you or part of being from the family you're from?"

Marlon Wayans: "I don't know, but as soon as this interview is over I'm going to the roof to jump off it."

Before he jumps, though...

Marlon Wayans: "You know, I got good grounding. My mom and dad are great people. My brothers and sisters are great people. I don't have a dark side like that. I love life. I like being happy. I like making people smile. I don't have a lot of pain, and that's one of the reasons I didn't do stand up for a long time."

Marlon has two career goals: to make people laugh and smile.

Marlon Wayans: "Then I realized, just because I don't have a dark perspective, don't mean I don't have a voice. That's why I go to crazy lengths to make people smile. I'll get naked and light myself on fire."

Shireen: "Can you do that now?"

Marlon Wayans: "I have a room up here."

Shireen: "Don't tempt you, right?"

Marlon Wayans: "And we can bring the cameras."

Unfortunately, we can't show you that video, but Marlon does have something he wants to tell Deco peeps:

Marlon Wayans: "Hey what's up? It's Marlon Wayans. If you want to see my new movie 'Haunted House 2' for free, then listen up."

Thanks, Marlon. Just e-mail your name, address, and daytime phone number to giveaways@decodrive.com and you could win.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
