A Conversation with the cast of Let's Be Cops
Join us for a conversation with the cast of Let's Be Cops: Damon Wayans Jr, Rob Riggle and Keegan-Michael Key
It's the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they're not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
DAMON WAYANS, JR. (Justin Miller) is the son of comedian Damon Wayans and a member of the famed Wayans family of performers, who have been involved both in creating groundbreaking television series ("In Living Color") and films ("Scary Movie"). Wayans starred in the television series "Happy Endings," and in pilot for the series "New Girl," which also starred his LET'S BE COPS partner Jake Johnson. Wayans starred in the "New Girl" pilot as Coach but could not continue with that series as he was already starring in "Happy Endings" when "New Girl" was put on the air. Once "Happy Endings" finished its three-year run, Wayans rejoined the cast of "New Girl" in 2013. He made his film debut in "Blankman," a superhero comedy that starred his father. Wayans also appeared in his father's television series "My Wife and Kids" before entering stand-up comedy and appearing on the "Def Comedy Jam" television series. He has appeared in the features "Dance Flick," "Marmaduke," "Someone Marry Barry," and "The Other Guys" (along with LET'S BE COPS co-star Rob Riggle).
ROB RIGGLE (Officer Segars) is a busy comedy star in feature films (including "21 Jump Street" and its sequel "22 Jump Street") and television (as a featured player on "Saturday Night Live" and as a reporter on "The Daily Show"). The Louisville, Kentucky native attended the University of Kansas before entering the Marine Corps, where he rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before leaving to pursue his Master's Degree in Public Administration at Webster University. An affinity for stand-up comedy led Riggle into the entertainment business. He was hired at "Saturday Night Live" in 2004 as a featured performer and later joined the cast of "The Daily Show" in 2006. He made his film debut in "Pushing Tom" in 2003 and went on to appear in "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "Unaccompanied Minors," "Step Brothers," "The Hangover," "The Other Guys" (with LET'S BE COPS' Damon Wayans, Jr.), "Going the Distance," "Larry Crowne," "Big Miracle," "Nature Calls" and "The Internship." He voiced roles in the animated features "Hotel Transylvania" and "The Lorax." Riggle's television work includes the series "Upright Citizens Brigade," "Chappelle's Show," "The Office," "30 Rock," "Arrested Development," "Children's Hospital," "Happy Endings" (with Damon Wayans, Jr.), "Wilfred," "New Girl," "Coogan Auto" (for which he directed three episodes), "Drunk History," "NTSF: SD: SUV" and "Modern Family." Riggle voiced roles in the animated series "Glenn Martin DDS" and "American Dad". He most recently appeared in the films "Just Before I Go" and "Dumb and Dumber To."
KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY (Pupa) currently stars in his own TV series "Key and Peele" with his co-star comedian Jordan Peele with whom he once worked with on the hit series "MADtv." Key made his features debut in the film "Get Out of Ham Town" in 1999 and
went on to appear in such films as "Mr. 3000," "Role Models," "Due Date," "Just Go With It," "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star," "Wanderlust," "Afternoon Delight" and "Hell Baby."
Key made his television debut on the series "ER" in 2001 and has worked steadily since on such series as "Reno 911!" "Sons of Tucson," "Gary Unmarried," "Love Bites," "Wilfred," "The League," "How I Met Your Mother," "Children's Hospital" and "The Middle."
