As you might have noticed, I’ve seen a whole bunch of movies with Cedric the Entertainer recently. While watching all these movies I was thinking that he reminds me of someone. With every film the feeling of deja vu was growing stronger and my mind was working harder trying to figure it out. And finally – BOOM – I remember. He strongly reminds me of Martin Lawrence, who I haven’t seen at all recently.
The similiarities are so strong that I could easily confuse one with another. Of course, Cedric is a lot bigger and heavier than Martin, but that’s about the only difference. They talk the same, walk the same, have similar jokes, their funny faces are the same and they are very similar visually.
But they only time I can remember them together in the same film they looked very different. The film was “Big Momma’s House” where Martin played the leading role of special agent Malcolm Turner and Cedric played a rather episodical role of reverend.
