Kristi Coleman: Who Dat making headlines?

Marlon Wayans Interview

Comedian Marlon Wayans hit up Fox 8 Morning Edition Friday.

Wayans is in town promoting his comedy show Friday night at the Orpheum Theater located in the Central Business District. The star told anchor Greg Adaline that he's not leaving NOLA without fried chicken.

The two shared many laughs. Wayans had a lot to say about the cold weather. He even had a few words for Jada Pinkett-Smith and former co-star Stacey Dash on their comments about the lack of diversity in this year's Oscars nominations. Marlon Wayans went on to call Dash "the female Donald Trump." You see the full interview above.

His stop here in New Orleans comes just one week before his new movie "50 Shades of Black" hits theaters.
