Mike Epps is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent.
Mike will return this summer in the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” produced LeBron James and Mike O’Malley which was picked up for a second season. The show follows Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher), a basketball star in his early 20s who is thrust into the limelight after signing a multimillion-dollar contract with a pro team. Epps plays Cam’s ‘Uncle Julius,’ who moves from the Dorchester projects to an Atlanta mansion with his family after Cam gets a big pro contract. Although Uncle Julius loves the perks of success, he still tries to keep the family on point with his guidance and wisdom.
Mike will also star in the ABC series “Uncle Buck” as Uncle Buck, a fun loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his nieces and nephew's Nanny has just quit and his brother and sister-in-law need his help. His unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family. The film is based on the 1989 film starring John Candy and will premiere first quarter 2016.
