"I try to always step up to the plate, be professional, be good at what I'm doing and deliver on the character."

Martin Fitzgerald Lawrence (Born April 16, 1965 in Frankfurt, Germany) is a German-born American actor and comedian. He began his career as a stand up comedian and gained notoriety in the 1990s after a successful run on Star Search. He has branched into acting, directing, producing and writing. However, he seems to be typecast quite a bit as most of his film roles are either as policemen, con artists, or in the case of Blue Streak - both.
