In Jenkins, Martin stars alongside two of Hollywood's comedic heavy hitters, Mo'Nique, and Cedric the Entertainer. Mo'Nique plays Betty, Roscoe's outrageous and not-so-well-mannered sister. Cedric rounds out the cast as Clyde, an ultracompetitive cousin.
Mo'Nique's experience acting alongside Martin, Cedric and fellow castmate James Earl Jones was so wonderful, she says if she never did another movie, it would be fine by her. "Just being in the company of such greatness, I can say, 'You know what? I've had my ride. I've had a great time, and thank you, God,'" Mo'Nique says.
Cedric says he has wanted to work with Martin again ever since they performed onstage live in Def Comedy Jam. "I had a small part in [Big Momma's House], and so we had this relationship," Cedric says. "He's one of the greatest."
