From the “Scary Movie” franchise to “White Chicks,” the Wayans family has been behind some of the biggest comedies of the last three decades. In a new interview, youngest brother Marlon Wayans has taken the time to explain to funny lady Tiffany Haddish why she never quite made it past the audition process.

During her guest-hosting spot on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Haddish asked the “On The Rocks” actor why she was never cast in any Wayans-produced projects, even remembering one that called for a “Tiffany Haddish type.”

“I know we friends and I know you love me. I love you,” she said. “You have helped me in so many different aspects in life, gave me some great advice. But this what I want to know. I have auditioned for so many of your movies, your family. Why do I never get cast?”

“Me and my family always say you’re funny,” Marlon responded with a smile. “As producers, you hire and cast people. You were always funny, but you were always on 10. And sometimes you just be inappropriate.”

“It’s like a love scene, and you want to sit on the actor’s lap and fart,” he further explained. “And it’s like ‘no Tiffany,’ it’s not for this scene.’ So, it was maturation that [had to] hit you.

“It’s like, for me even, right now I feel like I’m ready. I’ve been preparing 30 years for what’s happening to me now,” he went on. “It all happens to you at a certain time when maturity and that stardom hits you. Never nothin’ personal. We love you. Always thought you was funny. Me and my family, we proud of you.”
