Considered one of the hardest working comedians in the country, Mike is currently shooting the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” (produced by Lebron James and Mike O’Malley). The show follows the life of Cam Calloway (played by Jessie T. Usher) who is a basketball phenom who signs a multimillion dollar contract. Epps plays his uncle Julius who follows the young man to his Atlanta mansion and tries to keep the family together in spite of the temptations. He recently completed work on the BET show “Being Mary Jane” as well as the Universal feature “Term Life” (starring opposite Vince Vaughan and Hallie Steinfield). Mike plays a cop trying to find Nick Barrow (Vaughn) who has gone on the lam after a heist falls apart and takes out a life insurance policy that will not go into effect for 21 days. This summer he will be shooting the HBO bio-pic “Bessie” based on the life of Bessie Smith and starring Queen Latifah with Mike playing Bessie’s love interest as Richard Morgan (a bootlegger).
As if this is not enough, Mike is currently in the development stages of the script for the movie “Any Means Necessary” for Sony Pictures that has Neal Moritz set to produce. In this show he will star opposite of Marlon Wayans. The show is about two brothers whose lives have become polar opposites with one being a cop the other a criminal.
