Comedian and actor Cedric The Entertainer burst onto the scene as part of the comedy road show movie "The Original Kings of Comedy" (2000), before going on to star in a string of successful film and television efforts. He followed with urban comedy films such as "Kingdom Come" (2001) and "Barbershop" (2002), in addition to a short-lived sketch comedy program "Cedric The Entertainer Presents..." (Fox, 2002-03). Other major motion picture roles included appearances in "Intolerable Cruelty" (2003), starring George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as "Be Cool" (2005), starring John Travolta. Cedric demonstrated his versatility - and openness to family-friendly fare - when he lent his voice to the all-ages movies "Madagascar" (2005) and the live-action film "Charlotte's Web" (2006). Projects in a more real-world vein were also on his agenda, as evidenced by the pair of biopics "Talk to Me" (2007) and "Cadillac Records" (2008). Widening his palette, Cedric The Entertainer became the host of the always popular game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" (syndicated, 1999- ), with the talented, likable and hard-working artist earning his self-appointed moniker with an enviably prolific and varied Hollywood résumé.
